Kayelle does a masterful job of showing Pietas' emotions with all the different influencers in his life, but especially with Six. These books make me wonder why I haven't read science fiction much before. Or maybe I was just waiting for the best to come my way…?
Pietras and his kin are immortal. He is the War Leader of the Ultras, Chancellor of the High Council. Even broken he remained their leader. However, his father, Mahikos, the beast who tortured him and his sister throughout their lives was on this planet as well. As well as many people he loves or will grow to love. Some are immortal, one is human, and then there are also immortal giant panthers.
During their journey, they discover many lies that had been presented as truths, until with the help of others, the real truths were laid bare. But learning a truth can be painful as well, and more than one suffers from the lies and truths.
While a dense and often dark story, it was a fabulous read and I highly recommend it.
This is the second in the series and I haven't read the first, which was a bit of challenge for my book OCD. Fortunately, the author gives enough of the backstory that I didn't feel lost. Partly due to the fact that much of the book focuses on what lead Pietas and his people to be stuck on the planet and his coming to terms with just how badly his father needs to get dead.
More bro-mance than romance, the major relationship in the story is not between Pietas(m) and Joss(f) but Pietas and Six (m), his comrade in arms. Not that Pietas and Joss don't have super chemistry and strong romantic relationship, but all the drama is with Six. On the steam level - other than kissing, closed door all the way.
On the downside, its a bit heavy on the angst for main characters who are supposedly remorseless killers, and while I enjoy PNR blended into sci-fi, some of the 'powers' pushed me into eye-rolling.
A complete story, it does end with the setup for the next book, which I will read.
