Throwback Thursday - Sursein Judgement by Jet Mykles

Rynn made a mistake in taking the drug hextasy with his fiancée. It was supposed to be the ultimate sexual high, except that you have to sleep with the one you desire most. If you don't, your body won't be satisfied and you'll die. Rynn lived, Lynnette didn't, and now her parents want someone to pay. Either luck or Surseine, the god of justice Himself, takes pity on Rynn by putting his trial in front of one of His judges. Sursei are graced by the god they represent with the power to see truth and Sursei Shasertai finds Rynn innocent of murder.

But the drug is still out there and Shasertai and the people who travel with him are determined to root out the drug lord responsible for its existence. Shas invites Rynn to join them. He goes willingly, fascinated by the judge who gave him a second chance at life.

Rynn might be innocent and straight, but Shas isn't. He's gay, happily so, and very much drawn to the farm boy whose simple innocence is a balm to one who can hear through the lies. What he hears is that Rynn's not gay, so he vows not to get involved. Until another drug, another time, gets in the way...and then he and Rynn will have to deal with the each other's truths and their growing attraction.

My Review:

4.5 stars - Originally read in April 2012

I loved this book! It had everything I love in a book: an engaging storyline, a well built and interesting world, wonderful and lovable characters, plus plenty of drama and action. What's not to like? I also loved the fact that this wasn't the typical gay for you love story where a straight man who's never had gay leanings sees an openly gay man and is suddenly convinced that he's gay too and has zero angst about this. I also like that while Rynn starts the book as an innocent farm boy, it's not overdone throughout the book. We get to see Rynn grow and develop as a man as he goes out and experiences the world. We even get to see Shas grow up and mature a bit, which I liked. My only complaint was that the story ended. I would love to see more of Shas and Rynn and I'd love to see a certain bodyguard and a certain Marshall get their HEAs...
