Publisher's Summary

In deepest space the ruthless Federation lays waste to one rebel colony after another, leaving comrades-in-arms Van Orskey and Tayn Kassik without family, without a home, and without hope.

With nothing left but each other, they run contraband and smuggle fugitives from the safety of their ship, the Cormorant - with the occasional clandestine mission for the rival Coalition thrown in. Their heists have not gone unnoticed, though even the bounty on their heads doesn’t prevent them from being a thorn in the enemy’s side at every opportunity.

Pissing them off? Big mistake.

From the day of his birth Prince Jorvik of Akiak learned duty, wisdom, and honor from his father, leaving him ill-equipped to withstand betrayal by his Federation-puppet uncle. He has no love for the greedy off-worlders who plunder his world’s natural resources and enslave his people. To defeat his foe, he needs the cunning, fearlessness, and touch of treachery only outlaws can offer.

Two off-world mercenaries make unlikely partners in Jorvik’s quest for vengeance, but the more he learns of them, the more common ground he discovers. In each other’s arms they find passion, heat, and maybe, a reason for living - until their common enemy threatens to tear them apart.

To survive, they must take on the corrupt Federation.

And win.

A standalone novel based in The Sentinel universe.

Fantastic narration

5 Blue Roses
4.5 Blue Flames

Narrator Darcy Stark wonderfully surprised me with 3 new voices I never heard before. This testifies about his capability to adapt to various genres. His ability to do this and the emotion he pours into his performances, guaranteed a 5 Blue Rose rating. Especially, when paired with a new and fresh science fiction romance. The world building was done extremely well. I love longer audiobooks, as they portray harder work and higher quality audiobooks, with a plot that was very well developed.

I definitely recommend this audiobook, especially if you like to be carried off to another world and experience action, magic, weird slimy aliens and beautiful erotic sex scenes.

Happy Listening

MMy Thoughts and Review:

First things first...Confessions, I am more Fantasy than Sci-fi, unless we are talking Star Wars, but that's a religion unto itself. I am not ashamed to admit, Yoda is my Spirit Guide. 👽 Don't even attempt argument, you WILL lose! 😂

Moving on...💖

I was a bit nervous going in, especially with that first scene! I had a dubya-tee-eff moment and thought, "scuse me, I have 45 more hours of book here (really only 12 or so), so what the heck happens now?" Honestly, I think if I had read this instead of having had Darcy Stark read it for me, I would have enjoyed it less. Remember though, sci-fi isn't my thing, so that's on me, kind of.

The Story was well written, the world created (Akiak) was awesome, as were all the species of sentient life forms. I loved that the author used all three MCs' POV. I feel this helped give more weight and believability to the characters and their plight.

The reader gets to experience the backstory of two of the MCs through memories all throughout the book. However, there is an up close and personal view of the third MC's troubles as they play out in "real time." And can I just say, wowza! After that beginning and then this one chapter later, my emotions were so strung out I felt like I needed some scotch and a neck massage. But since I gave up drinking, because my body hates me, and I don't have a live in masseuse, I had to settle for extra strong coffee, my cat making biscuits on my belly and nail biting!😂

The world building takes a little time since the story begins with a "bang," but then the foundation is laid for all the events to play out, including an explanation of the first two major scenes. Once you and the book find your groove, prepare for light speed!

Even though I personally think some things could be left out so The Book isn't soooo long, die hard sci-fi fans will eat it up. I must say too because of all the action, the story does whiz by. As for the romantic side, you will fall in love with all three men. The two marauders, Van and Tayn and Prince Jorvik, with nothing in common except the same enemy. The three find solace together and bond themselves in friendship.

The journey while fraught with danger every step of the way shows, no matter your race, or species, people are constantly evolving, and changing based on time and circumstance. Some changes happen instantly, while others happen over time and are more drastic once the change has taken over completely.

The best way to handle all life's changes is to never forget who you are deep down inside. To keep that part of oneself close. Doing that will ensure no matter what life tosses at an individual, they can't be taken down...and if by some chance they are knocked over momentarily, they won't stay down.

I would definitely recommend to sci-fi fans, and to anyone who needs a nudge at something that shows the fortitude of the "humanoid" spirit.💖

Interesting

This was a interesting adventure you get a little of everything from mercenaries to royals. The storyline was interesting and keeps you interested. The characters Van and Tayn are great and the prince Jorvik has vengeance on his mind. The narrator did a great job making the characters interesting.

Amazing SciFi MMM Adventure

Consorts of the Red King is a complete departure from Eden Winters previous Diversion Books, with her leaving Earth and the Southeastern Narcotics Bureau, and traveling into deepest space where we meet Van and Tayn mercenaries working against the Federation.
Van and Tayn are friends and sometimes lovers who also share lovers but have never declared their love for each other, afraid, maybe to tip the status quo.
When the unthinkable happens after their ship is boarded, Van takes a job which brings them to the planet Akiak and it’s Prince Jorvik and the three men’s lives will become connected in ways they never imagined.
Consorts of the Red King was an enjoyable book, very well written with excellent world building and character development.
Although this is a ménage, it isn’t you’re typical ménage. Without going into detail and giving out spoilers you will understand as the story unfolds, it’s very clever.
Darcy Stark did a stellar job in the narration of this audiobook, there are numerous characters and you can very easily determine each and everyone. Well done 👏👏👏
