A’yen's loved ones are under attack. To save them, he'll risk everything.
Half the Lokmane are free and the resettling of Lok’ma is in progress. A'yen is crowned king, but it isn't stopping his enemies. Someone is after Ro, and the woman he's falling in love with is caught in the middle.
When Fae is injured in a cave-in at a dig site, A'yen knows who’s to blame. Proving it is the hard part. Things get worse when he walks into a political trap, and Ro is framed for murder. Saving his reputation is easy compared to saving Ro. Ro’s demons come for him, taking him back to a life not worth living.
A'yen races to save Ro before he can act on his deepest desire: killing his tormentor. Happily ever after can't happen if Ro is dead.

Yes, this book is about A'yen, but in reality this is Ro's story. Ro is a powerful Me, and tattooed as a sex slave, trapped by an evil, sadistic human. He's being used to destroy any attempts for the Lokmane to be free on their home planet. But what those who are out to end what has begun, is that Ro is done being a pawn. With Jasmyn's help, Ro learns to overcome who he was and be who is. Another powerful installment in this series. Smith pulls no punches, putting both A'yen and Ro through the wringer, and bringing them out better men in the end. Redemption and forgiveness, in yourself and in others, are the strong themes running through the book. Read these books in order, so you can better enjoy the progression from slavery to freedom.
Rachel Leigh Smith's "To Save a Life" is the third book in her A'yen's Legacy series. It’s an interesting science fiction romance series. Sort of “Stargate” meets “In Distress” by Caethes Faron (which is a M/M read that’s very well done). This time we get to have a more in depth look at Ro. Ro has been marked as a sex slave and he can get into minds. Once again, all of the characters are amazingly deep and the story line has lots of complex twists and turns. Many of the intimate scenes are done with a more closed door approach, describing the beginning of the act or using only vague terms. Some readers prefer that, but I like a little more naughty stuff! There will be a #4 and I can't wait to read it.
