Overview

Liam Lansing is heir to a prominent family of bio-modified vampires. That is, until he chooses the wrong lover and is cast down to the Gutter to scrape for his life.

Daniel Harding is heir to Cybernetix and a prince of the corporate Sky. That is, until his ideology drives his father to put a price on his head, forcing him into the Gutter.

They strike against the corporations in a daring raid. When everything goes wrong, Daniel must betray his core beliefs to save the man he loves and protect his dangerous secret. Only through courage in the face of death—or worse—might he and Liam change the world they live in and create something new under the sun.

    MORE! I WANT MORE!!! ~ Under the Covers

    I’m going to try to contain my excitement for this book so bear with me.

    SOMETHING NEW UNDER THE SUN is book two in the Falling Sky series and OMG, THIS BOOK IS SO FREAKING AMAZING!

    Well, that lasted about two seconds.

    But seriously though…I discovered L.A. Witt’s writing very recently. After having read her Christmas short called “Candy Caning” (great title!) in the Come All Ye Kinky Anthology, I knew I had found a new M/M author who captures the wit, the characters and their passion in a well-written story. Since then, I’ve been stalking her backlist trying to find more titles that would sweep me off my feet. So far, Witt has not let me down!

    SOMETHING NEW UNDER THE SUN is an interesting mix of genres. You’ve got some sci-fi elements. There’s vampires. Obviously, you get your M/M romance in there and I would say it has the pacing of a well-written Urban Fantasy novel as well. The action is non-stop and ass-kicking, making for a thrill ride that you never want to stop!

    In addition to the intense action, Witt delivers a unique world where the Gutter and Sky are two separate entities, yet are so close together. The standard of living is the major difference and when you read, you’ll see just how well Witt has developed this world.

    Since this is book two in the series, I still believe you can read this as a standalone because Witt gives new readers a recap of past events. That’s always a plus for me. However, I do suggest reading the first book. You’ll want more even after book two! I know I do *hint for L.A.* ;P

    Liam and Daniel are to die for! I fell in love with them so quickly and I think readers will enjoy their witty banter and their easy way of handling each other. However, that isn’t to say everything is always rosy between them. It’s the way their handle their differences that I think makes them more well-rounded, fleshed-out characters. I have certainly enjoyed their time together and am hoping for more adventures with them!

    If you’re looking for a M/M romance with stellar characters, intense pulse-pounding action and witty dialogue, then L.A.Witt is your answer. She will deliver, satisfy your craving and have you begging for more!

    MORE! I WANT MORE!!!

    Delicious Sequel With Heartpounding Action & Romance

    Something New Under the Sun by L.A. Witt, the second book in the Falling Sky series, picks up right where A Chip in His Shoulder left off as reunited lovers/pseudo-enemies Liam and Daniel continue with their plan to bring down Daniel's corrupt father who has nefarious plans for the wealthy vampire community. After Daniel's father makes a particularly aggressive move against Daniel, he and Liam and their eclectic band of warriors have to do what they never thought they'd have to to make things right.
    The beginning of this story picks up seamlessly where the action left off previously. Even if you haven't read the previous installment though it's quite easy to immerse yourself in this futuristic world of the haves and have-nots. The descriptions of the dark, toxic, and gritty Gutter where the less-desirables live and the glamourous and pristine Sky where the rich and elite reside are vivid and dramatically show these socioeconomic differences. The action-packed sequences are heartpounding and keep you on the edge of your seat and present us with two men unexpectedly forced into being heroes against their will. These men aren't happy having to do what must be done, but do it nonetheless.
    The vampiric aspects of Liam aren't highlighted, they're merely touched on. The more important thing about him is his technological modifications that enhance his vampiric abilities. That's what's always been the roadblock between him and Daniel. Once desperate measures arise Daniel realizes that the heart of the man counts more than the modifications as he too has to do what he never thought he'd have to do. Even when some issues keep them apart, the few sexual interludes in the story show their truely intense emotions. These scenes are nicely blended into the action and are steamy and gritty. With their lives on the line these interludes speak of their desperation to find even one moment of happiness as things fall apart around them and even when they couldn't speak their emotions freely their actions did the talking.
    The secondary characters of Felix, Venus, and particularly Gizmo came on the scene like gangbusters. They were warrior-geeks who fought just as hard to make things right. Gizmo was especially intriguing through a barely hinted at background story and a snarky attitude that totally won me over and has me dying to know more about him. Here's hoping Ms. Witt hears my pleas!
    From start to finish the romantic and action-packed rollercoaster ride was a memorable one. From its unique characters to heart stopping action scenes this was another satisfying installment to a wonderfully entertaining series that hope continues on even though this story wrapped up with a delightful HEA.
