“I am his guardian angel. I don’t know who he is. I know every line of his face—the curve of his lips is carved in my soul—but I don’t know his name. I always called him just Prince.”

Tasked to watch over a young man in suspended animation, Phae, a clone, spends his life alone on an empty spaceship, focused only on the protection of his ward. Prince isn’t scheduled to wake for another twenty years, but an attack on the ship starts the automatic awakening procedure. Prince relieves Phae’s loneliness and teaches him the meaning of love. However, the mission becomes more complicated than either man was led to believe—and far more dangerous. Their destination is a world held hostage, where clones are disposable and Phae is scheduled for “recycling” when his duty is done.

Traumatic events in Pete’s work life distance him from home, and he doesn’t realize until it’s too late that Ash has slipped away. Betrayal, secrets, and lies unfold, and when a devastating coincidence takes hold, Pete must fight with all he has to save the love of his life.

Brute mène une vie solitaire dans un monde où la magie est omniprésente. Ce qui le définit le mieux serait sans doute ses deux mètres trente de laideur, et son ascendance honteuse. Personne, pas même Brute, ne s’attend donc à ce qu’il puisse être autre chose qu’une main-d’œuvre corvéable. Mais les héros sont de toutes sortes et de toutes tailles, et quand il se retrouve handicapé pour avoir sauvé un prince, la vie de Brute change brusquement. Il est invité à venir travailler au palais de Tellomer afin de devenir le gardien d’un seul et unique prisonnier. La tâche semble facile, mais elle s’avérera être le défi de sa vie.

Les rumeurs prétendent que le prisonnier, Gray Leynham, est un sorcier et un traître. Ce qui est certain, c’est qu’il a passé les dernières années dans une misère à peine imaginable : aveugle, enchaîné, et rendu presque incompréhensible par un bégaiement extrême. Et comme si cela ne suffisait pas, il est assailli par des cauchemars durant lesquels il assiste à la mort de gens vivant à proximité – pire, ses rêves se réalisent.

Tandis que Brute s’habitue à la vie au palais et apprend à connaître Gray, il découvre sa propre valeur, d’abord en tant qu’ami et en tant qu’homme, puis en qualité d’amant. Mais Brute apprend aussi que les héros sont parfois confrontés à des choix difficiles et que faire ce qui lui semble juste peut aussi l’exposer à de grands dangers.
