Outcast Mine | [Jamie Craig]

Outcast Mine

There is nothing Aleron Pitre can’t steal, nobody he can’t con and no situation he can’t slip out of until he’s sent to the prison planet Tantoret, where every sentence is death. If the prisoners don’t kill each other, they’ll die slowly and painfully from mining the poisonous drug chojal. Yet Aleron still hopes that he can escape.

Publisher's Summary

There is nothing Aleron Pitre can’t steal, nobody he can’t con, and no situation he can’t slip out of until he’s sent to the prison planet Tantoret, where every sentence is death. If the prisoners don’t kill each other, they’ll die slowly and painfully from mining the poisonous drug chojal. Yet Aleron still hopes that he can escape.

Only 30 Athaki guards keep the chaos of Tantoret in check, a race of aliens stronger and faster than their human charges. Most intimidating of all is the head guard, Jasak, who has his own reasons for being sent to Tantoret.

Amidst the darkness and desperation, Aleron and Jasak share an unexpected attraction. An attraction neither can resist when Jasak claims Aleron as his mate to protect him. Then they discover that both guards and inmates are planning a coup, while a traitor from an enemy nation threatens the whole planet. Suddenly, escape from Tantoret isn’t just Aleron’s dream - it’s a matter of survival for them both.

    "Awesome!"

    Completely amazing! After listening, it’s easy to see why this book won awards. And, Jack LeFleure does a fantastic job narrating – I wish he’d read every book from now till the end of time! I loved it so much I visited the author’s website looking for other Jasak/Aleron stories – but, sadly, there aren’t any others as this is the first book (in what I hope will become a lengthy series). Forget the phobe reviews here and download – you won’t be sorry!

    "Definite Recommendation!"

    I bought this book in pdf form and read it in hours. I could not get it out of my head, I loved it so much that by the next day I came to an important realization. I couldn't be away from it, so I bought it here in audio format and took it to work with me. Whatever I had missed in my initial read, came across amazingly. The narrator is perfect. Ten+ delicious hours of listening and I started listening all over again. The world that the authors (Jamie Craig are two authors) build is so vivid you can hear and feel everything described. The despair, the fear, the hate, the love, the determination that the characters show is portrayed brilliantly. I recommend this as one of my top 5 best and favorite gay romance novels!

    Story
    "you know where your going but love the ride there!"
    If you could sum up Outcast Mine in three words, what would they be?

    i cannot limit this work to simple words. the story grabs your attention and will not release it till the end and then you find your self listening yet again. even though i didn't have the timeto do it i listened to the whole story in ONE DAY!!! i could not tear myself away from it!!!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    both lead characters. they are good seperatly but together they make every scene memorable and u want to listen again and again!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    every scene is wonderful and i don't want to ruin it for anyone but if you get this the scene close to the end brought tears to my eyes and the ending is wonderful even though you don't want it to ever end!!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    yes! many!!


    Any additional comments?

    i usually go for the parnormal books and i was never much for sify but this book has me hooked!!!

    Story
    "Delicious romance!"

    I just finished listening to the last chapter a few minutes ago while relaxing in a bubble bath. This book was pure delicious romance. For 10 amazing hours, I was invited to enter the incredible love story of Aleron and Jasak. I was instantly hooked from the first interaction between the two and I loved listening as Aleron slowly worked his way into Jasak's hard heart. The sex scenes were incredible and had me very hot and bothered while listening, so be careful where you listen to this story. This story was intimately set and buried in the living tunnels of dirt of Tantoret where Jasak and Aleron have nothing to do but fall in love with one another. This all changes when an unknown danger approaches and threatens to destroy life as Aleron and Jasak know it. This author is extremely talented, I was so pleased by how she delineated the differences between the intergalactic species and planets. I have a feeling I won't forget this touching story anytime soon and am already planning on re-listening to it very soon. Thank you Jamie Craig for writing such a wonderful love story, and PLEASE consider a sequel! The narrator also did an excellent job. Sometimes I could hear him breathing and a couple of wheezes here and there, but I just took it as being part of the drama and acting, so no hard feelings!

    Story
    "Well written, action, suspense & emerging love"
    Would you listen to Outcast Mine again? Why?

    The story builds quickly and believably captivating the reader to the point where it's impossible to stop listening.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The feelings emerging inside the two main characters are actually palpable. The emotional content is riveting. It's simply impossible to listen to this book casually!


    Which character – as performed by Jack LeFleur – was your favorite?

    It's not possible to favor one male lead over the other. Rather, the listener loves them both, each for their unique characteristics.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Without a doubt, and re-listen as soon as the first listen was over.


    Any additional comments?

    A book I will treasure always.

    Story
    "If you love vampire romance, you'll love this"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Outcast Mine to be better than the print version?

    Did not read print version


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jasik, because he led a life based on honor.


    Have you listened to any of Jack LeFleur???s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    None before.


    Who was the most memorable character of Outcast Mine and why?

    Both main characters were memorable in that they were written well enough to havve different personalities and they were intersting.


    Any additional comments?

    As a female who loves male sexuality in novels, this fit the bill. Reminiscent of the relationship between Armand & Marius (Anne Rice) and of J.R. Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood in terms of strength/weakness helping each other, it isn't a world-class novel, but it is very good romantic fiction. The narrator was good at having different voices for different characters but got the inflection wrong some of the time so it didn't reflect the emotion of the moment, but at other times got it perfect. I would have given it a 5 only if I thought it should be classified as one of those must-read novels destined to be a classic. Since it's just a fun, but good read, I only gave it 4's.

    "Not Bad..."

    Surprisingly good romance combined with a pretty action-packed story. Really good narration as well.

    "A bodice-ripper - for men"

    I started this one hoping for a fun sci-fi adventure, but soon realized that I was actually listening to a bodice-ripper... for men who love men. NOT that there is anything wrong with that, just not my cup of tea. Reader be warned. LOL

    Story
    "Did not finish ."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    No, the story was ok but the narrator was a bit boring and all the characters sounded the same to me.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was good story.... The world build up was good, the 2 main characters were also good.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Jack LeFleur?

    No.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    May be.
