Dominant Predator by S.A. McAuley
Series: Border Wars #2
Published by Pride Publishing Genres: MM, Science Fiction
The war had ended. Everyone had finally laid down their weapons. For the first time in centuries the Olympics were being held again. No one could imagine the Olympics would be used as a cover.
It all comes crashing down around them as Peacemaker Merq Grayson’s ceremonial shot intentionally assassinates the Premier of Singapore, leader of the Opposition. Secretly the Opposition believed they’d turned Merq a traitor to President Wensen Kersch. He wasn’t.
As Merq fired the shot he fully expected to die. It wasn’t until that next moment he realized that his most hated counterpart, Opposition Dark Ops assassin Armise Darcan, had turned traitor to his own side and saved Merq.
The war is on – it’s now called the Revolution. President Kersh gives the pair an important assignment. They are to hunt down and assassinate all members of the Opposition leadership. No matter where it takes them or how long. First, however Merq and Armise are to save a couple believed dead for decades. Merq’s parents. Only their skills can get these assignments done. No one will be the wiser that they are lovers as they murder their enemies.
A violent, brutal game of survival continues to play out in Dominant Predator, book two in the Border War. This is a bleak, broken world where life has little meaning to most of the population. For Merq and Armise to find a connection in the middle of madness is unbelievable. Dominant Predator is a hard look at mankind at their worst. This character driven tale in the midst of hell is difficult. Their love definitely is not flowers and poems. Their bond has been forged in blood.
