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.

    Story
    "Great Sci-fi story, too much sex"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I acquired this book based on it's sci-fi aspect and did not expect the inter-species homo-erotic aspect. The story here is well thought out and the idea of a prison planet where the guards are as much prisoners as the inmates is an interesting concept. Both of the lead characters are strong well defined characters with interesting backgrounds. This story can stand alone without the erotic romance aspect.

    Story
    "Great start then completely random"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    More consistent theme, better development of and coordination between the plot lines, and less focus on the romance which, while intriguing, was overplayed.


    What could Jamie Craig have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    The invasion plot eventually drives the story, but the focus on interpersonal relationships in the mine, both romantic and platonic, took up most of the book.


    What about Jack LeFleur’s performance did you like?

    LeFleur's reading was great.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Outcast Mine?

    I would cut about 80% of the romance scenes and add more about the invasion plot.


    Any additional comments?

    I'd pass on this book - there are better ones out there for your time and money.

    Story
    "Nice Jail Lover Story"
    Where does Outcast Mine rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Ok, so it's in the middle. It had a lot of violence, of course, because it's set in a prision filled with men. The violence, though, leads to the main characters falling more in love with each other. You know the twist is coming at the end, and you hope that Aleron doesn't betray Jasak, but then it wouldn't have that good ending, would it?


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked how Jasak was finally able to keep his honor and Aleron without guilt. I felt so bad for him throughout the whole story.


    What about Jack LeFleur’s performance did you like?

    He differentated the characters well. That's my biggest peeve when narrators don't do that, but Mr. LeFleur does it well.

    Story
    "A gay sci-fi adventure..."
    Where does Outcast Mine rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book is near the bottom of the list, but my list is relatively short. The story held my interest enough to enjoy most of the read. As with most books like this, some of it was a little too sexually graphic for me to enjoy thoroughly.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the sci-fi mixed with gay characters.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I cared for the first half of the book a lot, then it got slow till near the end.


    If you could rename Outcast Mine, what would you call it?

    The Gay Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy


    Any additional comments?

    If you are gay and like sci-fi, you'll probably enjoy this listen.

    Story
    "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.
