Dark Edge of Honor | [Aleksandr Voinov, Rhianon Etzweiler]

Dark Edge of Honor

Sergei Stolkov is a faithful officer, though his deepest desires go against the Doctrine. A captain with the invading Coalition forces, he believes that self-sacrifice is the most heroic act, and his own needs are only valid if they serve the state. Mike, an operative planted within Cirokko's rebels, has been ordered to seduce Sergei and pry from him the Coalition's military secrets. His mission is a success, but as he captures Sergei's heart, Mike is tempted by his own charade and falls in love.

Publisher's Summary

Sergei Stolkov is a faithful officer, though his deepest desires go against the Doctrine. A captain with the invading Coalition forces, he believes that self-sacrifice is the most heroic act, and his own needs are only valid if they serve the state.

Mike, an operative planted within Cirokko's rebels, has been ordered to seduce Sergei and pry from him the Coalition's military secrets. His mission is a success, but as he captures Sergei's heart, Mike is tempted by his own charade and falls in love.

When the hostile natives of the planet Cirokko make their move, all seems lost. Can Mike and Sergei survive when the Coalition's internal affairs division takes an interest in what happened in the dusty mountains of Zasidka Pass?

    Story
    "Riveting characters and plot. Out of this world."

    The plot was a twist on the old femme fatale getting military secrets and what happens after that. There was an element of a Cold War but on another planet. The beginning had a seduction and sex but there was not freedom to continue the affair. Not just sex scenes linked by a weak plot. I rooted for the star crossed lovers and listened well past my bedtime. I couldn't figure out how they would resolve the trouble. I look forward to more.

    "Waist of a credit!"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A higher rating would require a cohesive story line and orchestrated plot. This story seems to have words plucked from the air to provide a bridge between poorly written sex scenes. The characters were wholly unremarkable, and I found myself turning the book off simply because I really didn't care to know the fate of the characters. I regret the loss of my time and investment of resources on this work.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Aleksandr Voinov and Rhianon Etzweiler again?

    I would not listen to another work by this author.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The narrator was over dramatic, virtually to the point of caricature.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    Unfortunate and reckless use of star power from previous reviewers.

    "Interesting storyline for a basic trashy novel."
    Would you listen to Dark Edge of Honor again? Why?

    No. I typically just don't read/listen twice.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the sci-fi and military (Honor) themed story which helps set the background for the trashy sex scenes/chapters. I enjoyed the trashy scenes with vivid descriptions and action that tied into the story. The story has it's dark moments, but I think that is part of the uniqueness of the story in a trashy novel. Interesting overall and quite enjoyable.


    What about Jack LeFleur’s performance did you like?

    I'm a newbie to Audible, but I liked the performance. Good voice for this type of novel.


    If you could rename Dark Edge of Honor, what would you call it?

    The War between Honor and Love

    "Not what is expected"

    I hate getting a book that purports itself to be one thing (say Sci-Fi) and turns out to be something (though not entirely) else. Yes the story is set in a science fiction world, but it clearly is a raunchy M/M romance novel. If you are looking for a good Sci-Fi novel with a gay protagonist I’d advise that you look elsewhere.

    Story
    "if you like F-bombs, buy this book :-/"
    What would have made Dark Edge of Honor better?

    Not sure why some people think just because they can put F-bombs in books, that they have to put as many as they can.

    Perhaps the author's vocabulary is just limited.

    What a waste of 1 credit. I want my money back.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment. Wish book details would list things such as explicit language. Then I wouldn't waste money on books which have to rely on f-bombs and others to get through a story.
