Publisher's Summary

Welcome back to Charybdis Station and the crew of the Blue Solace in the fourth book in the series.

Sebastian Dolarnio has a past. His parents sold him into indentured servitude when he was 17 which led him to enforced prostitution. Fortunately, with the help of some very good friends, he and his daughter are safe and have a home - a beautiful, accepting place with more family than he ever dreamed of having. Then there's his mate. A handsome, wonderful man calls Sebastian "mate", and Sebastian knows he doesn't deserve him. He has to find a way to be worthy of his new home and his new mate. A strange Crellic book provides him with the answer to his problems, but it comes with complications of its own. 

Alois has been dreaming of finding his life mate since he was a kid. He knows that Sebastian is a dream come true, but how can he convince his mate of that and also fight the baggage he carries from his own past? When Sebastian begins a strange, wonderful journey, Alois knows that he has to be the loving and supportive mate that Sebastian deserves. 

The two men build a life together and learn to love one another, but the galaxy is in turmoil, and Charybdis Station is in the middle of it all.  

Author's Note: This is a male-male love story with no angst and no cheating, just a HEA. There is lots of action, some sex, male pregnancy, and a few potty mouths involved in the story. Only listeners 18 and above, please. It is the fourth book in a series that is best listened to in order. Listen to The Mercenary's Mate, The General's Mate, and The Soldier's Mate first!

pretty good sci-fi

Overall I enjoyed this audiobook. I didn't realize when I started listening that it is part of a series that needs to be read in order so I was a bit lost. Once I caught on a bit, I enjoyed the story. There's a lot going on, but I love the chosen family theme and the overall plot. The narration.... was ok. There are a lot of characters, to- be fair to the narrator, but it was hard to tell who was speaking, even the two main characters. And often the delivery was rushed? At first I checked to make sure it wasn't on 1.5x speed. Like, the dialogue was rushed but the words around it weren't. It was jarring.

A Future Together

This is Sebastian and Alois' story and the fourth book in the series. I recommend reading/listening in order as each book continues a main storyline that runs throughout the series.

Sebastian's life was in a bad place when he was rescued by the Blue Solace. His parents had sold him to pay their debts and his owner abused him. Sebastian and Alois have a connection from the moment they meet but Sebastian needs to get to know Alois before he can be more than friends. When Alois is sent on a mission to fight the Concord it gives the couple the time and space they need to form a deeper connection.

Alois has been searching for his mate and when he meets Sebastian he thinks he is the one. He won't know until they kiss but after getting to know Sebastian he decides he wants Sebastian as his own no matter what.

Sebastian has been helping translate old texts to help in the fight against the Queen and her Elements. His reputation as a go to translator has spread beyond Charybdis Station. He also has been studying a book about shamanism that might change his life in ways he never imagined.

Alois, Sebastian and Death/Dr. Morrick search for ways to free Fire from the Queen. Fire has always been a free spirit and unlike the other Elements in that he doesn't take joy in hurting others.Their journey leads them to some revelations about themselves and some reunions as well.

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good romance. It has action and adventure with some fluff thrown in to make you smile. And if you enjoy catching up with past characters and seeing the continuation of their stories and where they are now you will especially love this series.

I received a copy of this audiobook but this is my honest review.

Great Addition.

Now this one has been one I have been waiting for. Sebastian and Alois wasn't an instant love especially with Sebastian's past. So this one makes me happy to see their journey to this point. Conner Brown does another great job bring this story to life. I really like how he does the voices and it just pull me more into the story. Can't wait to hear the next one.

Very well done

I loved the book from the first chapter. The emotions that the author brings out it spot on and the characters are done so well that you love or hate them. The narrator did a great job bringing life to the world. I was given a free copy of this audio in return for an unbiased review.

Not Jessica!!!

OMG. I thought I knew what to expect, but I was dead wrong. Sebastian's empty vessels called parents were beyond despicable and mercenary soulless creatures!! I was enraged and incensed at their mindset and actions. The queen continues to be a pia. More animals for the zoo!! And, on to more!! The narrator did a good job.

Finding Peace and Contentment

This is the 4th book in the series and I felt a little thrown into an unknown with it. It’s obvious in space, aliens to earth, a species that has mates and like anyone looking for love and acceptance.
The two who begin the story are two males who have a baby..this species has same sex mates and that mate, male or female can be pregnant.
They are a sweet couple, have good friends and baggage like anyone.
The story was ok, didn’t really pull me in, the troupes not too unique other than same sex, but that doesn’t matter to me, but may to others.
The narrator is a favorite of mine, so I enjoyed his narration.
So nice story, just didn’t do anything great for me.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
