“You’re not real. Felix Ingesson is dead.”
The war with the alien stin is over, but Felix Ingesson has given up on seeing his lover, Zander Anatolius, ever again. Zander’s military file is sealed tighter than an airlock. A former prisoner of war, Felix is attempting a much quieter life keeping his ship, the Chaos, aloft. He almost succeeds, until Zander walks on board and insists that Felix isn’t real.
A retired, broken super soldier, Zander is reeling from the aftereffects of his experimental training and wants nothing more than to disappear and wait for insanity to claim him. Then he sees footage of a friend and ally–a super soldier like him–murdering an entire security squad with her bare hands and a cold, dead look in her eyes. He never expected to find Felix, the man he’d thought dead for years, on the ship he hired to track her down.
Working with Felix to rescue his teammate is a dream come true…and a nightmare. Zander has no exit strategy that will leave Felix unscathed?”or his own heart unbroken.
This was exactly what I was hoping for when I picked up this book. There was just enough of a tragic past to make you feel for the characters. It had action, aliens, bad guys, reunited love and a good sense of place. There were great character interactions, interesting aliens, and dynamic action scenes.
Chaos Station would make a great movie!
I loved Felix, also known as Fixer, and although I would have liked to know a little more about his past, we got enough information to know it was bad and traumatic. His reconnection with Zed pulled at my heart strings, knowing how difficult things were for both of them. Zed was so damaged in his own right but still had his sense of duty.
This first installment of the series left the crew in a good place but I can’t wait for book two to come out in a few months! Definitely recommend!
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
