Some things are worth fighting for, which both high-born ruler and low-born lover learn in Book 1 of The Chronicles of Ylandre. In the dual-gendered realm of Ylandre, the great divide between the high-born True Bloods and the lower-ranked Half Bloods is deemed impassable by most. Rohyr Essendri dared to cross it when he took young Lassen Idana from his provincial town and made him his paramour. Lassen perforce learned how to navigate the intricate byways of life at court.
What he never expected, however, was to fall in love with Rohyr, a most inadvisable and impractical thing to do when one's lover is sovereign ruler of the land.
But anything worth having is worth fighting for, both figuratively and, as Lassen discovers, literally speaking. Content Notes hermaphrodism and explicit homoerotic sexual encounters.

Don't waste your time!
Sacred Fate by Eresse is set in a hermaphroditic society with lashings of fantasy and rather epic world building. I did get a little lost when I started it due to the many characters initially introduced and it was difficult to distinguish between them.
I liked the story for the most part, but found the Lassen very hard to warm to and Rohyr almost too overbearing. An interesting and unique story. I have even found a place where an editor pleaded her authors to not send submission of stories with male pregnancy since she was really tired of them… and I thought, how strange, in my experience I have not found so much of them.
In the fantasy world of Ylandre women are extinct more than years ago, and the males changed to be able to naturally bear a child; all man have both male than female genitalia, and when they give birth, they are also able to breastfeed the child.
Lassen is an Half Blood, meaning that he is of a lower class than Rohyr, who not only his True Blood, but he is even King of his territory. So for that standard, Lassen is very young, but for the modern reader he is an adult. In this way the author cleverly avoids any claim of Rohyr being forceful on Lassen, but really, all the story has the feeling of those old savage romances where the innocent and very young heroine falls in the clutches of the wicked hero.
For a good part of the book, like a perfect wicked savage romance hero, Rohyr masterly seduces Lassen to have him happy in his bed and not a sacrificial lamb.
Lassen here is the submissive lover, the bottom, and even if he can enjoy a variation in the bed role, in life he will never consider to be the leader, that role is of Rohyr, and to Lassen that is how things should be.
