Never let go.
Weighed down by scandal, Captain Jamie Callahan must choose between saving his family’s reputation and his father’s political aspirations, or taking down the enemy once and for all. Choosing one over the other will have lasting repercussions he can’t escape. Whatever path Jamie ultimately picks, Staff Sergeant Kyle Brannigan will be right by his side to face the consequences. Kyle knows in a situation like this the only way out is through. Together they can make it to the other side, but surviving that journey will take everything they have.
One last chance.
Agent Sean Delaney is learning what it means to be part of Alpha Team through trial by fire. He wouldn’t change it for the world, nor would he give up the life he’s building with Staff Sergeant Alexei Dvorkin. But their time together is threatened by outside forces they can’t outrun. Having put the nightmare of Boston behind him, Alexei is focused on keeping his family safe, but he can’t have eyes on everyone. Alexei knows he can’t ignore the danger on the horizon, and when it strikes, he is unprepared for the tragedy it leaves in its wake.
Risking it all.
The odds are stacked ever higher against Alpha Team, and outmaneuvering a precog is a daunting, almost impossible task. Jamie knows something has to give, and when it does, it just might break him the way nothing else in his life ever could.
In the Requiem is a 122k word steamy gay sci-fi military romance with a mostly HEA and concludes this main plot-arc of the series. There is military violence within the story that might not be suitable for everyone, as well as explicit intimate scenes not suitable for readers under the age of 18. This is a direct sequel to In the Blood and Out of the Ashes. Reading the previous books in this series would be helpful in enjoying this one.
Métahumains, Tome 5 : In the Requiem
“<<I’m gonna ask Sean to marry me.>>”
Kyle didn’t pause in finishing off his second beer. When the glass was empty, he set it on the bar counter and waved at the bartender for another, flashing two fingers to cover Alexei’s next round as well.
“<<I think I lost that bet,>>” Kyle said, sounding annoyed.
Alexei stared at his brother. “<<You bet on us?>>”
Kyle gave him a look that plainly stated he thought Alexei was dumb as shit. “<<The entire team bet on when you two would get engaged.>>”
Alexei rested his elbows on the bar counter and smirked. “<<Right. What did you have down?>>”
“<<Sean’s birthday is in December. That’s too far away.>>”
“<<Yeah, but my first choice was Valentine’s Day because you’re a romantic son of a bitch, so you’ll understand why I had to make a second bet.>>”
Alexei’s smirk faded a bit, but he refused to feel sad about why Kyle had to change his bet. Things between Alexei and Sean had been a lot better since their emotional breakthrough in February. Some days, Alexei forgot Boston even happened.
“<<You still lost.>>”
Kyle lashed out cat-quick and smacked his fist against Alexei’s shoulder. “<<Shut the fuck up. You haven’t asked him yet. Do you even have a ring?>>”
Alexei winced. “<<No? That’s why I need your help.>>”
! Je conseille de lire le tome 4.5 (c'est à dire tome 1 de la série Metahuman Files Classified) avant ce tome !
Wahou, quel final pour l'intrigue débutée dans le tome 1 ! On passe par un éventail d'émotions et il y a beaucoup d'action (ainsi qu'un peu trop de sexe, j'ai comme d'hab' zappé les scènes de Kyle et Jamie qui sont de plus en plus BDSM au fil des livres, ce que je n'aime pas du tout).
Bémol, j'ai trouvé que la fin n'était pas très satisfaisante. Après que l'action soit passée, c'est un peu précipité à mon goût et pas assez explicité et développé sur ce qu'il se passe et va se passer. A voir ce que ça donne dans les tomes suivants, je suis curieuse de voir ce qu'il y aura.
Par contre, il faudrait vraiment que l'auteur arrête de répéter sans cesse en détails ce qu'il s'est passé dans les tomes précédents comme si nous ne les avions pas lus. C'est vraiment lourd.
