Métahumains, Tome 6 : In the Solace



Description ajoutée par Katsura 2020-03-23T13:51:46+01:00

Résumé

Built to carry you.

Jamie Callahan is looking forward to spending the rest of his life with Kyle Brannigan. They’ve overcome impossible odds, and the only thing left to do is walk down the aisle together. Despite the happiness they’ve earned, their enemies haven’t all disappeared.

Make it to the other side.

Colonel Liam Wessex is thrilled his best friend is getting married, but it’s just further proof that his own life is breaking apart. With his classified identity revealed to the public, Liam is struggling with the transition into civilian life. Becoming reacquainted with MI6 Agent Oliver Archer forces Liam to reconcile his past actions with a future that just might be the answer to all of his problems.

It’s not over, it’s just the start.

Oliver thought he’d done enough to cut Liam out of his life. When their professional lives collide, he’s forced to accept the fact that Liam is no longer the spoiled prince he once knew. When terrorists target London and the unthinkable happens, Oliver and Liam learn that second chances come with a price neither can afford to pay.

"Agent Archer, a moment, if you will."

Oliver cast his gaze toward the ceiling, silently wishing he'd been able to make his escape via lift and not have to deal with the annoyance of a man he couldn't completely rid his life of.

"What do you need, Colonel Wessex?" Oliver said as he turned away from the open doors of the lift and their fleeting offer of freedom.

Liam flashed him that cocky smile, which hadn't changed much since they were teenagers attending Eton together. His dark blond hair had been trimmed for the wedding, and while Liam must have shaved for it as well, a hint of beard had started to shadow his face. The service uniform Liam wore did little to hide the fact he wasn't one of those working royals who would never know what hard work truly meant.

It was a shame, really. Hating Liam was easy, but sometimes Olivers prick overrode his brain. Oliver would have had an easier time holding on to his anger if Liam wasn't so bloody hot and if the world could stop throwing him back into Olivers life.

"Lets go to my office, shall we?" Liam said.

"I need to report back to my superiors at MI6."

"It can wait until we've discussed the parameters of your secondment to my team.'

The blithe arrogance of Liam's expectation that Oliver would obey him as if he were under his command rankled. "We've discussed everything we needed to today in the three-hour briefing we just had."

"As much as I put my faith in the UMG, I put more in my team. I know we've worked together before, but those situations were different. You were never on the field with the Royal Legion."

"I, and the other agents working for me, did just fine cleaning up your mess back in December and the handful of times since."

Liam arched an eyebrow, staring Oliver in the eyes as he said, Lift to Level Thirty-Five.

"I honestly don't have time for this."

"Then make time." Liam gestured at the reopening lift doors. "After you."

[Lecture VO]

! Je conseille de lire le tome 5.6 (c'est à dire tome 3 de la série Metahuman Files Classified) avant ce tome !

Dernier tome de la série, que j'ai trouvé un peu en dessous des précédents. Moins d'action et moins addictif malgré les personnages attachants.

L'Alpha Team nous manque dans ce tome, même si on les voit un peu au début, pour le mariage de Kyle & Jamie. J'aurai d'ailleurs préféré que cette partie se déroule plutôt dans un tome distinct, comme pour Alexei & Sean, et que ce tome soit centré uniquement sur Liam & Oliver (il va sans dire que j'ai de nouveau sauté les pages des prouesses sexuelles BDSM à rallonge Jamie/Kyle...). Les POV de Kyle & Jamie ne sont pas forcément bienvenus dans la seconde partie du récit. Alexei & Sean eux m'ont cruellement manqués par contre car ils ne sont pas très présents.
