Sometimes the perfect soldier isn't what you expect...

In 2207, humanity is the dominant force in the galaxy. The Syndicate governs the humans, and its leader, Joren -- a former Marine sharpshooter -- oversees it all. When enemies attack a scientific research vessel, the SRV Maelstrom, Joren sends friend and fellow Marine, Carter Therres, to rescue an enigmatic and somewhat antisocial professor. The situation quickly spirals out of control, however, and soon the three men find out just how fast the mighty can fall.

Captain Carter Therres doesn't know what to expect aboard the Maelstrom, but it sure as hell isn't the gorgeous man waiting in the maintenance ductwork. Ash Mracek is unlike other men Carter has known, and the scientist's past involves something much more sinister than the Academy bombing for which he was framed. Now it's a race to save Ash -- and possibly Joren -- before their enemies can take them out of the picture for good.

A daring Dom Marine and a sexy submissive scientist send this science fiction story out into orbit. Dr. Ash Mracek is an anomaly in this universe. Yet, he's the only one who may be able to help save the military Syndicate run worlds from Revenants. This story is Joss Whedon's Serenity combined with Stargate Atlantis and then adds a D/s M/m twist. And oh is this added kink luscious!

The Revenants are wraith-like aliens bent on slaughter and pillaging. They exist in some kind of "dark space" which keeps them safe from the rest of the universe. Ash is close to determining how the Revenants survive in this "dark space". Captain Carter Therres is the one who goes to rescue Ash when Ash's ship is attacked by Revenants.

This is just the beginning of the world building and it is right up my alley. There are different types of aliens, conspiracies, an underdog theme and best of all – Domination and submission. The D/s in this book is hawt. Mychael Black certainly knows how to pen a hot D/s scene between two men. She could have left it with the kinky cock worshiping and restraints. Instead, she heats it up with humiliation and public exhibition. This went from smexy to blazing hot within a few pages.

Since this is just the first in the series, there are several questions left unanswered which leaves the reader lusting for more. This m/m science fiction book is recommended to kinky readers who love the threat to bare it all in public.
