Blurb: Embracing destiny was never meant to be easy.
Morgan can’t figure out where he belongs anymore now that a new world has emerged in the aftermath of the Alasharian invasion of Earth. Everything is too strange and frightening and all he wants to do is hide from it all. It doesn’t help to ease his confusion when he finds himself being drawn to not one, but two aliens. He thought his cousin Chris was insane to fall in love with the muscled warriors who bonded with him as his mates, but his own heart might be in danger when it comes to the warrior Rama, and Hallosh, an advisor to the Alasharian’s Supreme Commander, the Nall.
Chris experiences a terrifying vision from the Soul Healer and it becomes clear that both Alasharian and humans are running out of time to save the Earth from the insidious spread of the Void. A battle is imminent and it becomes imperative to protect those who are allied against the evil that has corrupted the Nall.
Everything on Earth is about to change once again and Morgan finds himself at the brink of discovering his own destiny—and how the two aliens he can’t get out of his mind will be a part of it. A disturbing event triggers the beginning of the fight against the Void. Chris and Morgan must separate for the first time since the invasion, with each of them going with their soul matches. For Morgan, he hopes the goodbye he says to Chris isn’t forever.
Review: The Soul Match series has fascinated me since the first book, in the way Morticia Knight combined aliens and BDSM in a way that fit the culture of the aliens without making it seem strange. I enjoyed the first two books that focused on Chris, Nary, and Lasar as they discovered the depth of their connection and how they could manage being three together when a soul match is meant for two Alasharians.
Morgan, Chris’s cousin, has just been along for the ride until now. He’s been protected by Nary and Lasar as much as they could, but he was waiting for Rama, the Alasharian he’s assigned to, to return and take him as his slave. He’s terrified by the prospect. He felt a connection to Hallosh, however briefly, but he will fight against it. When he meets Rama, though, he realizes not all Alasharians are the same. And when the gentle warrior takes an interest in Morgan’s books, their connection deepens.
To me, Morgan is a more likeable character. Maybe it’s his innocence and how uncertain he was over everything. Chris was hesitant, but he seemed to fall quickly for his alien matches. Morgan, on the other hand, has been watching everything from the sidelines and has had more time to process, or not, the situation.
The book does bring in Chris’s point of view since he is integral to the series. The plot thickens with the Nall and the Void becoming more dangerous, and the resistance needs to move fast before it’s too late to save human and alien life.
This series does have some BDSM and mentions of slavery, as humans are considered sexual slaves for many of the Alasharians. What happens between Chris, Morgan, and their matches is consensual. This series also must be read in order because the events from this book directly follow events from the previous book, and it would be incredibly confusing without the background information.
I highly recommend this series, though! It was enjoyable and I cannot wait for the next book!
