Explicit Adult Content. Demetri knows giving in to Malstrum’s desires will protect his band of miners, but the heterosexual Earthling will struggle with violent courtship rituals on a planet devoid of women. Demetri messed up in the military and now must serve as a miner on Earth’s ally planet Secren. This is the last place he wants to be. Earth men are considered small and cute to the violent Secren men. Demetri already ran a mine on the ice world Donovan. This gives him enough notoriety for mine overlord Malstrum to take an interest in him. It seems cut and dry that he’s going to rebuff Malstrum and make it on his own, but Secren is a brutal world. The male population are all slave miners desperate to reach their quotas. As an Earthling Demetri is an easy mark to get robbed or killed. Giving in to Malstrum is the only way Demetri can survive. The charismatic mine overlord decides to make it easy for him.

    Not the worst

    If you're looking for great literature, this is not the book for you.However, it is a decently fun read and follows a classic yaoiesc plot. The "sort of sex scene" at the end is a little graphic, so I would call this a 17+ book. Overall: not terrible and a fun way to kill time. 3/5 stars.

    It qas ok

    It was kind of boring and wasn't well written. I kind of felt like i was reading a fanfic. I also this there was too much cursing in it. If they had a better sample than i wouldnt have bought this.

    more from this reviewer

    Better than I thought it would be

    I recently purchased my Nook Tablet and was looking for something inexpensive to buy and read in this genre. I read the reviews and thought I'd give it a try(Considering it only cost $1.49). I was hooked from the first page! The world of Secren and its customs got my attention but the characters held it tight. I loved it so much I read it in one sitting then went to purchase the 2nd installment. This is yaoi and scifi. It's fun to read and will kill time but if your expecting a literary work of art-you'll be disapointed.

    Why are people surprised?

    Yeah those guys are kissing. So what if they are? Thats what YAOI IS. If you don't freaking like it then go away. There are more people who like yaoi than those who hate it, and if you do hate it then you've just given it attention.
