You’re not gay, my brain reminded me, but it wasn’t an objection, exactly. It was more of a question I couldn’t properly finish: Not gay, so why does he make me hard? Not gay, so why do I want him? Not gay, so why can’t I take my eyes off him?
Not gay, but I don’t care.
Cameron Rushton was taken by the Faceless four years ago and the propaganda machine has cast him as a war hero. I’ll say this, for a supposed “war hero” he isn’t treated very well by his country when he’s returned in a Matrix like Faceless pod of amniotic goo. Through a series of unfortunate, or fortunate however you look at them, events Brady and Cameron are quarantined together and begin to form an unusual connection.
Our gazes locked. We didn’t need words. Didn’t need telepathy either. The truth was right there in our faces. Could have been something, except it would be over before we knew it. It already hurt.
I’ll admit Dark Space has been consistently in my GR feed for the past several months and I’ve read most of the reviews-both good and not so good-and been firmly on the fence as to whether or not I would enjoy it. I’m happy to say I did. The imagery Ms. Henry evokes with the Faceless is excellent; decent world building. I loved the character development of Brady and, obviously, the relationship progression between Cam and Brady. I have to offer a personal thanks to Ms. Henry for “the game/20 minutes” scene. Meow. More of that if there’s ever a sequel, please. There is a little angst which I’m always down for though I did feel like it dragged in spots, not to the point of going on and on and on without driving the plot forward though.
“You’re my heartbeat, Brady.”

Over the between now (11 Mar 2017) and 31 Mar 2017, every comment on the blog (this post and all other new posts), will be entered to win 1 of these paperbacks. There are also some misc swag items, so there will be a few packs of these to give away as well.
