Tolui has been painted with a pretty dark brush throughout this series, but I didn’t find him all that scary up close. Of course, he was totally blinded by his destined mate, so I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt. As to his mate, Lea was a woman who wouldn’t be defeated and I really liked that about her. She’s the type that makes lemonade out of lemons, and maybe adds a splash of alcohol for fun.
Tolui finds himself totally helpless where Lea is concerned, and defends her spectacularly against the scum who has been hunting her as she tries to build a ship to leave the desolate hunting planet she’s on. As things progress we are treated to glimpses of characters from the previous books and how they help smooth the way to a resolution to the conflict between Tolui and the Warlords.
I was totally enamored of all the clones, who though they looked alike were each an individual. I found myself rooting for the clones instead of the Warlords, although I liked them too. Can’t they all just get along? And that is what this story is all about which was a nice ending to the series and a new beginning for the Chamele race.
Tolui, a clone of a powerful Warlord, is a male without a homeland or a future. Doomed to never mate, he ruthlessly wages war, seeking to give his clone brothers a planet system to call their own, a place where they can live without persecution.
When Tolui crashes on a deserted planet and meets a small human female, he discovers everything he knows about clones is a lie. Lea, his destined mate, frees the passion he’s suppressed over his lifetime. He wants her. He needs her. He’ll do anything to bond with her.
But he won’t share her. Tolui’s greatest battle will be the fight for Lea’s heart. To win her love, he’ll face hundreds of his clone brothers, men who look exactly like him.
