Summary

Former Marine Will Hawthorne has revealed himself to the alien world of Taitala as the Makalang, a legendary creature who is expected to reverse the world's decline into senescence and extinction. With his first wives already pregnant, tensions between the city's clans begin stretching to the breaking point as the demand for new children intensifies.

But Will's attempts to mediate the dispute are upended by a campaign of bombings by the shadowy Black Sky group and suspicions that the mysterious nocturnal panikang are behind it.

As Will continues his quest to unravel the enigma of the Makalang's role in the world, he must choose between the needs of one of his closest wives and the needs of his adopted world.

Contains mature themes.

I like it

this is the second audiobook that I've listened to from this author. I think the narrator did a fantastic job. I like the story and I recommend it to anybody who read this review. as of the time of this review the first four books are available on audio and the first seven are available in e-book form. I don't know if he stops there or if there's more coming but considering the size of the books I would think of it more like volumes as opposed to full novels being released.

Excellent

I love this series it deals with a lot more than just sex. The relationships are deeper and the plot is much more complex. I enjoy the characters especially their quirks. The narration is excellent. On to the next audiobook!
