All in all this was a highly disappointing book. There’s two main reasons for this.

Firstly, the romance is not one. Tuck and Ivan have a really sound, solid, healthily-sexual relationship. They were thrown together accidentally at the very beginning of the book, and immediately embarked on a sexual relationship, partly because it’s a good disguise to keep meeting for plot purposes, but mainly because they really like having sex with each other. And why shouldn’t they? Yay for them. They get on r
3-3.5 stars – An overall fun sci-fi m/m romance story. Your mileage will vary, I think, on how well you go with the flow on things.

What I liked: I like sci-fi adventure romance, and Hell’s End hit a lot buttons for me. The story is set in the far future on a multi-level space station that is like a giant city in space, with hundreds of floors, many of which are in chaos and war as different “Families” duke it out for control and power. I dug the setting and the unpredictability of the many floor

Hell’s End starts strong with its depiction of a dark, dystopian future-world where anarchy reigns supreme. A multilevel deep-space station is the backdrop for a story about power struggle. Some of the station levels are home to regular folk. Some are fierce battlegrounds where ‘Families’—the Sorensen, L’arisian, Ortega and McDougal clans, feud for supremacy. Factor into this the Government (Gov), the secretive, corrupt, evil, villain of the story whispered to have experimented with genetic and

Tuck jumped from the frying pan into the fire. After escaping the Gutters, a vicious band of children and teenagers who were bent on killing and eating him, Tuck emerged alive only to be taken by another gang for their prostitution ring. If being drugged to the gills in preparation for a life of sexual slavery wasn’t bad enough, Tuck soon finds himself rescued only to be made a spy for the government. Yet the rebels want Tuck to turn

Review written for MM Good Book Reviews

Hell’s End is a war field, between the Gov and the families fighting for control, it’s a fight for survival every day. Tuck is a Gutter, one of the many children who band together to stay alive, but life expectancy is short, if you live past 18/19 years old and the Gov and families don’t get you then the other Gutter’s will. Tuck’s time has run out and when he outruns the Gutter’s his problems have only just be
Hell’s End is a roller coaster and one that I can only imagine is the start of a series. The majority of loose ends, plot wise, are wrapped up but there feels like so much more story left to tell that I’d be surprised if it’s a one-off. In any case the writing is fresh, the science fiction brutal and gritty, and the characters intriguing. I liked reading this quite a bit, but at the same time I never forget the story’s limitations. I never fully bought into the main couple, they’re well matched ...more
This story is simply bad in my opinion. Nothing is truly understandable or logical here. I couldn't even connect with the story as a whole. And I didn't even mention both MC's, Tuck and Ivan, what a couple. Here we have an instant connection between the MC's. This whole created world in this story didn't make sense. Sure at the beginning it was pulling enough, but then soon everything fell apart. And because of that I couldn't especially accept how madly HOT were Tuck and Ivan about each other. ...more
Definitely had some ewww, gross (Gutters, bots) going on but a refreshing space adventure. Hell's End is a space station in orbit above Jupiter. This is the story of a band of rebels working to overthrow the evil Gov(ernment). Fascinating tech, colorful characters, and a couple of tough, endearing MCs.

In the story dedication, Ally Blue thanks the masters of sci-fi, and I think she did them proud.

Hell's End drew me into the story and kept me turning the pages, and never, ever gave me a break from the action. Just when the heroes seemed to get themselves out of one jam, they found themselves back in the fire again. I was so caught up in the action that when I found myself in a waiting room without my ereader, I bought the book again to download directly to my phone. Suddenly, the wait time did

What it's about: This is a very fast-paced book involving Tuck and his week from … well, Hell. Tuck starts out in a bloody and violent street gang, and things go downhill from there. Our other hero is Ivan, a soldier who knows he shouldn't get involved with a gutter kid, or the rebellion, but try telling that to his heart.

Why you should read it: I love m/m, and I love sci-fi. Hell's End mixes the two perfectly, with the thrown in spice of adventure and chemistry. It's a quick read, and the secon

ugh! I've changed my rating three times now. Four, then three, then four. I'm leaving it at four. I enjoyed the story enough for four stars. I like the science-fiction aspect and I like the darker tone, like the Gutters and the whole once you are too old they chase you down, gut you and eat you. *shrug* I'm weird that way. It's not a romance-y type romance and I actually enjoyed that. It's more about the rest of the story, but I was still happy with the romance that was in it.

What a story! Ally Blue is a master at creating alternate realities and futuristic worlds and then inhabiting them with the most fascinating people ever to grace the page of a sci-fi novel. She does not falter here in Hell’s End—not one bit. You are thrust into the world and, immediately, your adrenaline begins to soar. To minimize this novel by saying it is “action packed” is like saying that Mother Goose wrote a “few” nursery rhymes! I could not put this novel down!

It was just an excellent sto

Ally Blue is acknowledged by the world at large (or at least by her heroes, who tend to suffer a lot) as the Popess of Gay Angst. She has a great big suggestively-shaped hat and rides in a bullet-proof Plexiglas bubble in Christmas parades. Her harem of manwhores does double duty as bodyguards and inspirational entertainment. Her favorite band is Radiohead, her favorite color is lime green and her ...more
