Canada, 2165 AD. The Water Wars and a decimated economy have taken their toll. Anyone who doesn’t live in a military-patrolled metropolis lives in a clan. But being in a clan doesn’t mean safety.This is not your typical romance, but I think that's why I liked it so much. If you like Dystopian or SciFi, then this is a book you need to check out. From the very beginning it is non-stop and doesn't stop until the end. I do have to warn you that this is bisexual and M/M.
And for a Ven like Roan Lee, it doesn’t matter where he lives. Safety is a luxury. So is freedom.
Roan is desperate to escape the governtary’s exploitation and torture. He is nothing to them but 54σK1, an artifact born from a genetic mishap. When the chance to escape arises, he makes a run for it—and encounters the lover from his past, twisting his future into a second chance he never expected.
As leaders of Clan Teach, Jace Ama and his wife, Cayra Diega, have enough difficulty keeping their people safe. When Roan is thrown to their feet as a prisoner, their marriage becomes an additional challenge. Jace still loves Roan, but where does that leave Cayra?
Roan was ripped away from Jace, the man he loved when they were only teenagers. From there, he became the property of the government, who used his magic/powers for their purposes. Desperate to escape their torture, he finally finds his opening and makes a run for it. And who does he find? Jace, his long lost love, who is now married.
Jace was surprised to see Roan again, someone he never stopped loving, but things have changed. He's married and is the clan leader now. Will he lose Roan a second time? Or is there a way to make it work?
I'm not going to sit here and tell you that this book is sweet and the HEA comes without a cost. This isn't that kind of story. They have to fight not only for their love, but for their very lives and the lives around them. The book is well written and keeps you on the edge of your seat. There were also a few times my gut twisted in anticipation, but it is a great read and I highly recommend you one click today! 4.5 stars.
