After the news breaks about Cashiel Michaud’s involvement in research to undermine the Demoted system, he and Sascha find themselves detained as a legal case develops. Separated, they work from both sides to get released, making sacrifices and arrangements along the way. If they do reunite, will they be the same?
Sascha and Cash face a number of threats from the outside world, and some from the people closest to them. When they don’t know who to trust, their plans and their relationship are put to the test. And the results of this test could affect the world. (M/M+ – See publisher’s website for content labels.)
This is the first time in forever that I have started a book and had no idea how it was going to end and I was really worried about it. If you have followed the Demoted series I think you will understand when I say there was no easy resolution to Cashiel and Sasha’s relationship. Cashiel is a free man who skates very close to the laws of the land with the secret project he is working on and Sascha is a slave, a demoted citizen with no rights, but he is also the brains behind the work and the man Cashiel has fallen in love with. The very fact that Cashiel loves him puts Sascha in more danger than ever.
Succession starts where Sedition left off and see Cash in prison and Sascha in a slave detention centre. Within their confines they each find very different ways to keep their heads above water – for Cash this is a way to get out but for Sascha it is all about surviving. Sascha finds a saviour in Sy but as with everyone in this series the man has his own agenda.
I found myself hoping for the best all the way through. Sascha has been so abused previously that I had everything crossed that he would survive being locked away once again. The author did a great job on keeping you guessing until almost the end of the story. One minute I was convinced I knew who was behind the data leaks and all the problems that they caused and then the story would suddenly turn and I would find myself guessing again.
When they do finally get home things are stressful. The weeks apart from each other and Sascha’s new reliance on Sy puts their relationship to the test. Cash seems much calmer in Succession and Sascha seemed much more of a brat at times. I liked Sy a lot and thought his introduction to the story and to their lives worked well.
The ending resolves a lot of things but also left the story quite open for continuation and I for one would be pleased to hear more from these characters.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
