Kell is a high-priced male courtesan sent to spend a month with Jorihn Parr, captain of an old space station orbiting a flux planet. He quickly finds himself facing perils on every side. A business baron who operates outside the law wants to take over the station, and when they won’t surrender he is ready to attack with state of the art battleships. The planet below hosts alien life forms who put Kell in a new body and force him to act as their spy. The lives of hundreds of innocent people, men women and children, hang in the balance.
And in the middle of the maelstrom, for the very first time, Kell finds he is falling in love.
This was so much more than I expected! A great sci-fi story with some romance and a little question of what it is that makes a person a person. I found the writing to be solid with well-developed characters and a good plot.
Although Kell being put in another body was odd at first, and it took a while to change my image of him in my mind, it added so much to the story. I loved how Kell and Jorihn’s relationship developed. No insta-love here! The sex scenes were purposeful and added to the story but didn’t dominate the page space. The villain was a little bit of a baddie caricature but there was enough variance in the other characters to balance it.
If you like a little romance with your sci-fi, I suggest checking this out!
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
