This is one wild and very deep ride. I love a good sci-fi and this delivered, but I have to say it was almost a physical workout to read. It kept me on my toes and surprised me every time I thought things would settle a bit. The enormous multi-universe and it’s intertwined political entities was fascinating. How the author saw through it all, to bring it together in the end, is astounding.

Within you’ll find vast political intrigue, manipulations everywhere and a tender, gentle and ruthlessly sexy love story.

THE CHARACTERS

Moro Dalgleish - Raised in a orphanage, bonded slave, and a total wild-card. He’s been betrayed at almost every turn, but finds he has advocates he never knew of.


"No, damn you,” hissed Val, lifting the remote from Moro’s limp hand. “Look at me while I kill you.”
The command shocked Moro out of numb acceptance. He couldn’t look away from Val’s wild, tear-hazed eyes.













Val Antonin ne’CAma - Heir to the Camalian throne, Crown Prince of the Commonweath he marries Moro in a rash, juvenile moment.

THE STORY

Moro is a bonded slave fighting to earn his freedom. When he learns that he will be returning to his former master instead of gaining his freeman status he chooses suicide. During his initial attempt he comes across Val who has been pursued by assassins. Moro and Val aid each other in an escape attempt and find they have more to offer each other.

There are some pretty big leaps to some pretty strong emotions in the romance, but later the connection and reason become more clear. I felt I had to go with it for a bit, but it works ultimately.

The race to outrun multiple entities; enemy and ally both, allows Moro and Val to begin a relationship just in time to be pulled apart by much bigger threats. It’s a crazy, twisted, deep, intense read with love at it’s core.

THE WRITING

I don’t think I can even begin to describe the hugeness of the universe MC Hana has created here. The visual descriptions of some of the planetary and universe forms is gorgeous. The creative characters are quite unique. The world building is very clear, but the character vastness is mind-boggling. Everyone seems to have two or more identities, nicknames or racial connection. Which was really tough for me to keep straight. In fact, I didn’t keep it straight, but in the end it did seem to work it self out well enough that I’d like to see the story continue.

I would suggest clearing your head, paying attention to details and hanging on for the ride.
