Title: Labyrinth of Stone
Author Name: T.A. Moore
Publication Date & Length: February 10, 2015 – 221pgs

Synopsis

Ten years ago the Black Rapture transported thousands of people, seemingly at random, from Earth to the strange, inimical world they call the Labyrinth. Will Teller was one of them. Surviving that meant joining an army and becoming better at killing than he’s comfortable with. It’s enough upheaval for anyone’s life. The only problem is, apparently no one told his commanding officer that.

Pride, and heart, stung by abandonment, the icily controlled General Nathan Kearney has decided that Teller can either find the wayward lover, or he can take his place in Nathan’s bed. That’s pretty good motivation for a straight guy, only thing is – Teller’s sexuality seems to have gone a bit Magic-8 Ball on that issue. Suddenly Nathan’s starting to look pretty good, and the only question is whether or not Teller wants to be the consolation prize?

Dreamspinner author, Rhys Ford, described Labyrinth of Stone as, ‘A glorious piece of speculative fiction featuring dynamic characters and intriguing world building.’

FourStars

I haven’t said this much at Inked… I couldn’t put this book down. It’s addictive and masculine and sexy. Labyrinth of Stone is a quintessential porn-without-plot. It exists so that the protagonist, affable Will Teller, and the love-interest, brooding Nate Kearney, can get off after a long, slow burn that’s equal parts humor and violence.
Try to approach the book as anything more than that, and wind up in the labyrinth. There’s discreet world–reminiscent of Phillip Jose Farmer’s Riverworld crossed with the Maze Runner. Intriguing, right? These people are not on earth. But it never gets far explained or explored, fascinating though it is, and only serves the story.
The story which is violent and gory at times, and desperate, which lends itself to the masculinity that is so appealing. This isn’t buff muscles and Alphas, it’s men. Hard men, half-soldiers, who don’t really know what they’re doing other than surviving. There’s still a sense of humor–shoutouts to Glee and Buffy help define and construct remembered sexuality after an apocalypse.
The book is hot, hot, hot. Sometimes that’s enough. I read it within 24 hours, after all.

AuthorBio

As a small child TA Moore genuinely believed that she was a Cabbage Patch Kid and no-one had told her. This was the start of a lifelong attachment to the weird and fantastic. These days she lives in Northern Ireland and her friends have a rule that she can only send them three weird and disturbing links a day (she still holds that a DIY penis bifurcation guide is interesting, not disturbing).

TA Moore believes that adding ‘in space!’ to anything makes it at least 40% cooler, will try to pet pretty much any dog she meets and once lied to her friend that she had climbed all the way up to Tintagel, when actually she’d only gotten to the beach and chickened out. She writes about vampires, werewolves and ghosts (*whispers* ‘in space!) and once wrote zombie erotica to prove it could be done
