Overview

Kendras is a casualty of war: injured, penniless, and quite possibly the last surviving member of the only family he’s ever had—the elite fighting force known as the Scorpions. When a steel-eyed mercenary offers him medicine and shelter in exchange for submission and a secret task, Kendras has no choice but to accept. He is a Scorpion; he’ll do whatever it takes to survive.

But his true goal is to rebuild the Scorpions. Neither Steel’s possessive nature nor Kendras’s shattered foot can keep him from finding the last of his brothers, or the mysterious leader of the Scorpions, the man who held Kendras’s heart long before Steel tried to take it for himself.

The goal is simple, the situation anything but. To rescue his leader and escape from Steel for good, Kendras must fight through a morass of politics and intrigue where enemies may be allies and even allies have hidden agendas. But Kendras isn’t only fighting for his lost lover and tribe—he soon realizes that nothing less than the birth of an Empire is at stake.

READER DISCRETION ADVISED. This title contains the following sensitive themes: dubious content, explicit violence.

    Awesome book

    I seriously loved this book. Warriors, mercenaries, battles, intrigue, love, hot growly sex, you name it, this book had it. Packed full of awesome!

    This book had me page one. By the end of the first chapter I was a goner, completely enthralled, could not put it down. The writing carried me away; Intense, complex, twists and turns that kept me guessing, vivid descriptions that painted pictures I could see and feel, strong, complex characters that gripped me and wouldn't let go, a unique world that still felt like a part of history with splashes of mythology woven throughout. This book did not miss a beat.

    The characters were amazing; as much as I love Kendras, I would be lying if I said I didn't love them all for one reason or another. The main characters, secondary characters, good guys and bad they just won't let go of me. The main character, Kendras, tough as nails, with his amazing endurance and determination; The Officer with his honor and strength; Widow, tough, snarky, never really knowing what's up with that guy; Selvin the slave, endearing, strong in his own way; Even Steel captured me and never let go. Every one of them had me hook line and sinker.

    This book was an experience for me, it came to life, it pulled me in and it wouldn't let go. I cannot recommend this book highly enough for anyone who loves a good gritty m/m book and definitely for anyone who enjoys Aleksandr Voinov's writing. Without a doubt my favorite he's written so far. Grade A awesome.

    Another great story from Aleksandr Voinov

    An excellent tale of an exclusive group of warriors set in a medieval fantasy. No sorcery, but plenty of swords, and a compelling story of love between two strong and honorable men. Loved it.
