Book 1 in The Borders War series
Face to face, and rifle to rifle. The time and location change, but never the circumstance. Merq Grayson and Armise Darcan are enemies—and neither will be considered successful until the other is dead.
It is the year 2558. A mere decade has passed since the signing of the treaty which ended the three hundred year long Borders War. In the midst of an uneasy peace, the world gathers for the first Olympic Games since the war began.
The rifle competition showcases the very soldiers who fought in the war, pitting former enemies against one another again. Continental States Peacemaker Merq Grayson will once again battle the Dark Ops officer from the People’s Republic of Singapore Armise Darcan, this time under the flag of their own uneasy truce. The relationship between Merq and Armise is one of violence, secrecy and a growing intimacy that could have them both branded as traitors.
OMG!! The world this author created in this story was amazing!!!
I will be the first two admit I love Dystopia books and the way this author wrote this one was just so good! The story in this book grabbed me from the start and I could not put it down until the end.
Merq and Armise have a very different relationship in this book. One of hate for each other but then there was lust and their attraction for each other. They fight a lot in this book and the way this author wrote this story you can feel the tension between these two men.
I do not want to give away to many spoilers so I will leave this review with… I loved what this author did with this story and these characters in this book. I also thought that this world that S.A. McAuley created was amazing and gritty! Merg and Armise both being highly trained killers each on a different side of this border war.
All together I 100% loved this book and would definitely recommend it!
