Strength of the Rising Sun by S.A. McAuley
Series: Border Wars #5
Published by Pride Publishing Genres: MM, Urban Fantasy
The Revolution seems certain to finally end the war once and for all. People throughout what is left of the world are war weary and ready to back the peace that the Revolution offers them.
Pivotal chess pieces of the war are Merq Grayson, Peacemaker, and Armise Darcan, Dark Ops who have fought against and together during the years of these never ending wars.
None of it matters now as Merq races to save Armise who’s lost his arm to their greatest enemy, a man who has held them prisoner. Getting Armise the medical care he needs to survive is all that Merq can think about.
The battle to save his lover’s life is just the beginning. Secrets are revealed. Their worst enemy must be stopped. When all is said and done can Merq and Armise come to the realization that forgiveness must be sought for their love to flame or will they crash and burn forever. Walking away is the only way they can make it. Too bad everyone will try to stop them.
The violent, gritty Borders War series comes to a gut wrenching finish in the emotionally challenging Strength of the Rising Sun. Book 5 is an all or nothing chilling climax. Merq and Armise have led a tempestuous journey where love and romance barely survived. A skillful, harsh blend of dark drama and unflinching faith in each other has kept Strength of the Rising Sun from floundering. Merq and Armise are one in a million characters who deserve this ending. This was one wild, exhausting romance.
