Dark Edge of Honor has a good storyline, but it does get a bit dragged down in the telling. There is a good love story mixed in with some great adventure, war and survival.
The connection between Mike and Sergei was intense and passionate with the hot love scenes making it last. Even though it dragged I would read it again. It's well worth recommending for those who like a good action adventure with lot of love story mixed in. So I say Enjoy.
