Rating 45 of five ReadingIsResistance to gay men in armed service vanishing now or in the futureHEART SCARAB gets my full attention at my blog because the second TAKING SHIELD book is about grief love and honor and how they can conspire to ruin lives eat happiness and leave devastation in their wake What a great Booksgiving idea for your dearly beloved space opera fanAuthor Butler takes us deeper into the life of Shield Captain Bennet eighteen months following the events on Maess held planet T18 and on board the Gyrfalcon As Bennet performs his duty to evacuate illegal religious fanatic colonists on Telnos soon to be behind Maess the faceless unknown aliens winning a war of annihilation against humanity s great to the 10th power grandchildren lines he obsesses over his failing relationship with his elegant worldly lover Joss his burgeoning love for Pilot Flynn stationed on his father s ship the Gyrfalcon and his patient long suffering Lieutenant Rosie listens to him and moons and pines for him completely unheeded unnoticed unconsidered for the position she along with the rest of humanity I d guess craves Bennet s loverBut that s just the beginning of Bennet s troubles at Author Butler s hands And that s why I read space opera Pile the troubles on with the highest possible stakes Then make the stakes personal Then by gawd create some scary aliens with a baseless grudge and an attitude some super advanced tech that is actually just like what we have now on steroids so I can believe itWhy I read this space opera is simple gay guy Bennet flies in the face of humanity s one apparently eternal character flaw religious belief to live his truth as a man who loves men Add to that his father s strong religious convictions and his family s long tradition of military service his older lover s patrician disdain for exactly how his luxurious lifestyle is maintained and military anti fraternization rules that Bennet takes very seriously and that prevent him from pursuing his new love for Flynn and you have a witches brew of good dramaStill very little sex Very little indeed And what there is is non graphic by today s standards More than in Gyrfalcon I think though I haven t done a statistical analysis I can assure the eww ick sueamish that no unpleasantly meaty words are used and with a small effort of intentional misunderstanding the import of the few sexual scenes can be contextualized as emotional intimacies that can t be expressed in any other way without falseness Who here hasn t had what you knew was break up sex while pretending the pleasures of a familiar touch were after all enough Yeah me too and so does Bennet when the flypaper and prayers that ve kept Joss in his life finally blow apart under the final assault DeathBennet you see has the bad taste and rude vigor to return from the dead It s justunseemly And after Joss in the manner of their people has made sacrifices of his and Bennet s favorite artwork the perfect and glorious antiuities Joss archaeologist by training offered up to the gods for Bennet ancient historian by academic training to use in the Field of Reeds back comes Bennet hale and hearty and not in the Field of Reeds at all Thethejoy embarrassment confusion of it allAnd that hale and hearty is solely a valid description when matched against dead and rotting on an alien held planet Bennet is in shards physically and psychically and emotionally His body will heal slowly his psyche and emotions might or might not heal at all ever and he might well never get to use his new bionic knee back in his deeply loved Shield role A soldier who s too broken to soldier is by definition A Very Unhappy Man Add to this soldier s woes the emotional mismatch between himself and his partner The immense irresistible force of falling in love with the right one The awful reality of wartime military service meaning unavoidable separation from your loverhappy sighI will say my wish expressed in my review of Gyrfalcon to get to sympathize with poor overmatched Joss came true I was sad for him as he was hollowed out by loss and the hideous regret charged acid bath that is grief All the times one falls short one is unkind impatient unwilling to understand or empathizeoh gods and goddesses those will keep a soul awake and agonized as they replay unchanging and unchangeable in the darkness But far painful is the way they play out like movies on a screen while living breathing people are making noises meant to distract console reach you in the locked projection booth of your failingsYes Joss I know that one Author Butler was cruel to you Goodness knows you deserved it butwelldon t we allAnd the ending of this story is fascinating It is unusual within the genre of gay male centered fiction I will read the next installment of Taking Shield called Makepeace as soon as I ve caught my breath and begun to accept the changes wrought on my feelings alreadyWhich if I need to say it is the hallmark of a really good read

Be careful what you wish forI d remarked that in Gyrfalcon Joss was pretty awful and meant to beSo in volume II Butler gives us big chunks of Joss s POV As a result I was interested in Joss than the MCs and skipped a couple of chapters supposed to be their great love scenes and discussing feels with all their friends and relatives mostly one after the other but sometimes in groups Caeden s manipulative behaviour seemed based on revenge is a dish best served cold And the future seems a bit like the 1980s No fun games or entertainment These are military on long haul patrol and have state of the art training simulations But no electronic games let alone VR That was a tad disappointing The ending was bad also Talk about out the blueVolume III is mostly alien bashing apparently so I may try it
