The Interstellar Navy is just a paycheck for Mark Sayre; at least in the beginning. What grows on him more than anything though is his commanding officer.
Following in his father's footsteps makes Shane Cawley proud of what he does, even when the job must come before the heart. His feelings for a young man under his command will have to be ignored, for the time being anyway.
Working under Shane gives Mark a whole new appreciation for what it means to be part of something bigger than himself. With the threat of war looming closer, Shane and Mark use their special bond to connect when physically they cannot. This last attack; however, damages something in Mark that Shane fears he may not be able to fix, no matter how much love he pours into their bond.
The visual representation of Mark's mind is eerily fascinating. It allows the reader to feel like they are with Shane step by step as he tries to reclaim the love of his life. Each scene builds the anticipation, drawing you in deeper as they unfold. The unknown landscape of Mark's mind as well as Shane's total devotion to get his lover back is what I feel really sets this story apart.
