Felix Ingesson has returned to his duties as the Chaos’s engineer with Zander Anatolius, his ex-boyfriend-turned-broken-super-soldier, at his side. Hope means something again. But there’s nothing Felix can do to battle the alien poison flowing through Zander’s veins, or his imminent mental decline. With each passing day, the side effects of Zander’s experimental training are becoming more difficult to ignore.
When the ruthless Agrius Cartel seeks their revenge—including an ambush and an attempt to kidnap the Chaos’s crew—Zander is pushed over the edge. He can no longer hide his symptoms, nor does he want to. But hurting Felix when he’s not in control of himself is Zander’s worst nightmare—when it nearly happens, he agrees to seek help. Even if that means trusting the unknown.
As Zander places his life in alien hands, Felix appoints himself his lover’s keeper. And though he tries to be strong, he can’t ignore the fact that he might lose Zander…forever this time.
Lonely Shore continues where Chaos Station left off. Zander’s headaches are getting worse and he has started to Zone out unintentionally. Added to this, the Agrius cartel are still after them for what happened on Chloris.
We again have adventure and suspense as every good space book should. We also have new worlds, powerful aliens, and loss. This book made me cry! However, it made me smile again too. I loved the family that is the crew of the Chaos.
I loved the quote in the beginning of the book from Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage by George Gordon Byron. It set the tone of the book and made Zander’s realizations in the end all the more poignant.
If you love sci-fi and space operas, you need to read this series! Looking forward to book three!
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
