Publisher's Summary

There is nothing Aleron Pitre can’t steal, nobody he can’t con, and no situation he can’t slip out of until he’s sent to the prison planet Tantoret, where every sentence is death. If the prisoners don’t kill each other, they’ll die slowly and painfully from mining the poisonous drug chojal. Yet Aleron still hopes that he can escape.
Only 30 Athaki guards keep the chaos of Tantoret in check, a race of aliens stronger and faster than their human charges. Most intimidating of all is the head guard, Jasak, who has his own reasons for being sent to Tantoret.
Amidst the darkness and desperation, Aleron and Jasak share an unexpected attraction. An attraction neither can resist when Jasak claims Aleron as his mate to protect him. Then they discover that both guards and inmates are planning a coup, while a traitor from an enemy nation threatens the whole planet. Suddenly, escape from Tantoret isn’t just Aleron’s dream - it’s a matter of survival for them both.

Completely amazing! After listening, it’s easy to see why this book won awards. And, Jack LeFleure does a fantastic job narrating – I wish he’d read every book from now till the end of time! I loved it so much I visited the author’s website looking for other Jasak/Aleron stories – but, sadly, there aren’t any others as this is the first book (in what I hope will become a lengthy series). Forget the phobe reviews here and download – you won’t be sorry!

Definite Recommendation!

I bought this book in pdf form and read it in hours. I could not get it out of my head, I loved it so much that by the next day I came to an important realization. I couldn't be away from it, so I bought it here in audio format and took it to work with me. Whatever I had missed in my initial read, came across amazingly. The narrator is perfect. Ten+ delicious hours of listening and I started listening all over again. The world that the authors (Jamie Craig are two authors) build is so vivid you can hear and feel everything described. The despair, the fear, the hate, the love, the determination that the characters show is portrayed brilliantly. I recommend this as one of my top 5 best and favorite gay romance novels!
