4.0 out of 5 stars good solid science fiction 23 June 2015
By OJCast - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I loved this science fiction book, thoroughly enjoyable and I will add Mann Ramblings as another author I will follow.

Hunky Liam Jacks and his PTSD need Commander Danverse's tough hand when things become too much for Sgt. Jacks... until he meets Hadrian, the Adonirati gladiator empath... thus begins a wonderful science fiction adventure which drew me in and held me... I couldn't put this down and I literally read it almost straight through - a rare thing for me.

If you're in the mood for some well written, enjoyable science fiction, this is it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great scifi novel 2 May 2015
By Alina Popescu - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I will be the first to admit that I have a big soft spot for science fiction, and when it comes to gay scifi, I've read some pretty incredible books, so it's hard to amaze me. Yet The Luxorian Fugitive managed to meet all my high expectations. Mann Ramblings builds an interesting future world, and the community of Santa Claus is extremely appealing. Even in the distant future, the beings you encounter are as human as they are today, with the same flaws and qualities.

Luxorian is a world where the rich can afford anything, including slaves. Clones are the new second class citizens, and while this is supposedly a futuristic world, its inhabitants are not afraid to devolve back to gladiator times. They use their Adonirati to fight, and in between their appearances in the arena, they are nothing more than prostitutes.

War is still brutal and leaves just as many scars, just as Liam proves, and love is still complicated at best. Apparently, we are unable to learn to deal with our emotions and in the future, our feelings, wants, and needs are just as mind boggling as they are today. Yet this is the part I love most about scifi, being thrown in a world you do not recognize, yet immediately relating with those who populate it, with their fears and challenges, with their moral issues and their reactions to everything life throws at them.

The Luxorian Fugitive is definitely a page turner, all character are beautifully written, and it also happens to be one hot read. Hadrian is my new book boyfriend. I can't wait for the next installment in this series!

5.0 out of 5 stars Book Review by PizzyGirl 7 September 2015
By PrismBookAlliance - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
5 out of 5 Stars
For original review, see the Prism Book Alliance® blog online.

Note: For those of you with triggers, this story has a few non-con elements. They are not explicitly shown on page, but almost.

Wait, I believe this is the author’s first full length novel. Really? His first? This story was fantastic and had I not googled this man, I would have never guessed this was a first publication! Well done, I really enjoyed this one.

I totally picked this one up simply because of the title (authors take note that a fantastic title can bring in readers!). I mean there was just so much yummy goodness promised to me from the title alone, that I didn’t even read the blurb. And as such, I was flying blind as to who the MCs were. So color me surprised when I discovered this was actually two stories for the price of one! When the story began, I figured this would be Liam and Danverse’s tale, which turned out to be true, just not in the traditional sense.

Danverse and Liam had a complicated relationship. They were part of the same military unit, they worked together on board the Santa Claus, they were best friends, and they were each other’s sanity inside the bedroom. So naturally they formed a great attachment to each other. The Luxorian Fugitive may have had two love stories involved, but Liam and Danverse’s evolving friendship was at the heart of the entire tale. The reader got to watch as both men used this well established relationship as an excuse for not wanting more, as a reason for wanting more, and as a baseline for how things should be in the future. It was a very interesting relationship and makes this book worth a second read, because I am so sure I missed a lot of the subtleties.

So back to the romance. This was the story of Danverse/Mac and Liam/Hadrian. Both relationships were unique and gave the reader a glimpse of two sides of the coin. Mac and Danverse’s tale was one that had been long coming and had a solid foundation. It was not instant or sudden, but it was new in the fact that Danverse finally pulled his head out of his ass and did the right thing. This relationship was intense because these was a depth of emotion involved and there was a true love connection between these men. There was history and poor decisions that brought forth the long term nature of what these men had together.

Liam and Hadrian on the other hand gave the reader a bit of insta-love in the form of genetic modifications that lead to true mates instantly knowing they are meant for each other. Their romance was new and exciting and full of that honeymoon stage passion. It was hot and confusing and riddled with that new relationship conflict the developes when you fall in love with someone you really don’t know well yet. But their bond was not any less than Mac/Danverse. It was just as real and just as strong and the i wanted them to last just as much as I wanted Mac and Danverse to have their happy.

I found the fact that there were two cases of each end of the romance spectrum a good thing. They balanced out the other and made for a satisfying and well rounded reading experience. Having two relationships allowed the author to explore the complexities of all the characters more easily, as they really were all connected and I am unsure if this would have worked as well if they had each been given their own stories.

What also impressed me was the world building in this story. The author easily established the rules of this universe and characterized life on the Santa Claus. The sexual dynamics of the crew on the Santa Claus left so much room for the author to have a wide variety of stories in the future. I really want him to explore some of the naughty things he implied were common practice on board that ship! He totally pushed a lot of my buttons!

Also, I really liked the way the sex throughout this story was never the same. There was a lot of it but it ranged from tender to filthy to rough to brutal to exciting to romantic, and in each case, it was HOT. Not once did I feel like the author was just including sex because sex sells. The character’s sex lives were like a story all on their own because the author incorporated those sex lives into their beings and their relationships. There was a very strong D/s thread through all the characters that was explored well but did not steal the show. There was so much unsaid that the author could definitely delve further into these relationships in the future and I would be quite happy with that.

Finally, this story had a fantastic plot that was full action and tension and pointed out the worst parts of a person as well as the best parts. The plot brought out the ability of mankind to be absolutely horrible and selfish and just plain evil. It also brought out the fact that love will beat your evil down and lock it away for good! And the plot was full of interesting concepts such as genetic modifications, mind control, cloning, sex slaves, and many other things that made this world fascinating.

While I am not sure who would be the next MCs or if these men would get round two, I am looking forward to more from this world. It was fantastic and needs to be revisited soon!

5.0 out of 5 stars More Please! 20 April 2015
By Renee Stevens - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I absolutely loved this story. It was easy to follow, I didn't get thrown off by any editing mistakes, and the characters just make the story.

I especially liked how the author didn't get so technical on things regarding the ship. So many authors I've read get so technical that it's hard to follow, this wasn't one of those cases. I was drawn into this story and I really cared about what happened with all the characters.

This says it's Book 1, I wonder when the next book will come out?
