Blurb: Talon Versuthion loses his memory and his family, and decides to remain alone. The Vermithian crash lands on Turmaro and finds himself face to face with the one man he never wanted to meet–his mate, Alpha King Blazell Roughshire.
A delivery for the GPA goes horribly wrong and Talon Versuthion crash lands on Tumaro, the notorious wolf-shifter planet. Lucky to be alive, Tal desperately wants to find his missing adopted sister, but instead meets Alpha King Blazell Roughshire–Tal’s fated mate. Before the two can settle into their relationship, they have to deal with conspiracy, murder, kidnapping, Tal’s lost memory and his forgotten brothers. But their biggest obstacle is a centuries’ old plot to eradicate the human race. Tal, who has made it a point to never fall in love, has to decide if he can open his heart and let Blaze be passion’s hero.

Review: Talon can’t remember anything from before his parents disappeared. His adoptive parents have told him everything he knows about being Vermithian and he has sworn to never find his mate for the very real fear of pregnancy. On a routine delivery with his adopted sister, they are thrown across the universe during a storm. Crash landing on Tumaro is the least of Talon’s worry when he awakens and can’t find his sister and is confronted with his mate, Blaze. Blaze is overjoyed to finally have his mate, discovering his mate is also Vermithian is a blessing. Having their mating blessed by The One makes everyone happy, but there are a few who decide that they must go and they face a conspiracy that is centuries’ old, Blaze also has to look for Talon’s brothers and rescue them, brothers that Talon has no knowledge of.
This is a great science fiction story, weaving together an interesting view on what the human race could become. Blaze is the wolf shifter Alpha King. It was prophesied that an Alpha King would mate a Vermithian and change Tumaro forever. Talon has a target on his head, someone high up in GPA wants him and his family wiped out. Crash landing on Tumaro leads him to the man that he is destined for, a mate he doesn’t want. Coming to terms with his new circumstances, Talon embraces his mating, but still holds back a little, doubting he could fall in love so quickly.
Talon is a fantastic character; he’s fun, bossy and sweet. Blaze is a wonderful man; he’s an understanding, strong Alpha. He will do anything for his mate and his every breath is devoted to Talon. They make a fantastic couple and are very hot together. The storyline is brilliant and we meet lots of interesting characters who hopefully will get their own stories. There are a couple of different threads that come together in this story; an old conspiracy to eradicate humans, a prophecy of the Alpha King, a character being blackmailed, some complicated matings, and interesting background stories that look like they will be continued in future books. We are given a story filled with conspiracy, kidnapping, murder, plots and love.
I recommend this to those who love science fiction, shifters, falling in love, m-preg, a touch of kink, great characters, a brilliant storyline, lots of hints for the future and a very happy ending.
