Blurb:

Ennek, the son of Praesidium’s Chief, has rescued Miner from a terrible fate: suspension in a dreamless frozen state called Stasis, the punishment for traitors. As the two men flee Praesidium by sea, their adventures are only beginning. Although they may be free from the tyranny of their homeland, new difficulties await them as Miner faces the continuing consequences of his slavery and Ennek struggles with controlling his newfound powers as a wizard. In this sequel to Stasis, the fugitives encounter challenges both human and magical as they explore new lands and their deepening relationship with each other.

I love that each of the titles to this series are so apropos to the content.

Told from Miner’s POV this time, the story is quite a whirlwind of all the things that happen to the two men: Pirates, another evil Wizard, a foolish King, a Slave Market, almost dying multiple times…

While this was interesting from Miner’s point of view, I missed having Ennek’s. I regretted that the interesting things that happened to Ennek were mostly off page with anecdotal recounting by Ennek later to Miner. Those were action moments I really wanted to read.

That’s not to say Miner’s adventures were minor, he does go through quite a lot, mostly getting captured, being hurt, and then being rescued by Ennek, but the reality is Miner continuously saved the day. He saves Ennek’s life, he prevents Ennek from embracing his inner Monster, he physically prevents Ennek from being trapped and used…just as in Stasis they both continue to save each other.

Joel Leslie does a terrific job with the narration here. His character voices, timing, pacing, and emotion are all fantastic.

I just flat out enjoyed this audio.

Once again, this is a low steam book with a cliffhanger ending. Yet it’s not the kind that leaves you angry, and remember, the final book Equipoise has already been released.

I’m looking forward to seeing what happens to Ennek and Miner next.

I am an unapologetic book addict/lover. I’m happiest when reading and I spend most of my time with my Kindle, which is never far from my hand.
I love to be told a good story! I mostly read fiction: Romance, Erotica, Young Adult, New Adult, Paranormal (shifters? Yes, please!), a little BDSM when I’m in the mood, and I love a good ménage story. I DEFINITELY PREFER A HFN/HEA!

My biggest no-no’s are cheating, miscommunication / misunderstanding plots, unnecessary angst, and cliffhangers.
