Review: Lonely Shore (Chaos Station #2) by Jenn Burke, Kelly Jensen

All they can do is live day to day...

Felix Ingesson has returned to his duties as the Chaos's engineer with Zander Anatolius, his ex-boyfriend-turned-broken-super-soldier, at his side. Hope means something again. But there's nothing Felix can do to battle the alien poison flowing through Zander's veins, or his imminent mental decline. With each passing day, the side effects of Zander’s experimental training are becoming more difficult to ignore.

When the ruthless Agrius Cartel seeks their revenge—including an ambush and an attempt to kidnap the Chaos’s crew—Zander is pushed over the edge. He can no longer hide his symptoms, nor does he want to. But hurting Felix when he’s not in control of himself is Zander’s worst nightmare—when it nearly happens, he agrees to seek help. Even if that means trusting the unknown.

As Zander places his life in alien hands, Felix appoints himself his lover’s keeper. And though he tries to be strong, he can’t ignore the fact that he might lose Zander…forever this time.

Jenn and Kelly have written an emotional ride with this installment of the Chaos Station series. Lonely Shore opens with Felix and Zander having a normal (for them) life aboard the Chaos. They are giving their relationship a shot. It’s something they’ve both wanted but war and would be death has always made it seem impossible. They both know it won’t be easy, as it is something new for both of them. The stin poison that is running through Zander’s veins is the biggest obstacle for them to tackle.

The crew of the Chaos is still dealing with the Agrius cartel and the aftermath of what happened in the first book. They are still seeking vengeance and will apparently stop at nothing to see it happen. The crew is even receiving emails from the Grand Moth of Agrius, he is seeking a face to face meeting with Elias.

Oddly I could have cared less about the Agrius and the mess they bring to the book. Yes it is exciting and brings some tension to the pages but the stin poison in Zander and those ramifications is what kept me from putting this book down. I was all about Zander and what was happening to him. Oh readers, grab that jumbo box of tissues once the Chaos takes its crew to Ashushsk Prime. That’s all I’m going to say about that. That whole ordeal was INTENSE!

Other than the crew heading off to Earth I honestly have no clue where the series is going. I do know that I’m looking forward to the next one. I’m sure Zander will experience some new things all things considered. I’m still left wanting to know more about the Guardians. I was given just enough page time with them again that I’m still left wanting more.

Favorite Quote

Flick to Zander: “ When are you ever going to let the big picture go in favor of looking after yourself?”
