It is the year 2441. A deadly virus has swept over the planet, short-circuiting cybernetic implants, killing billions. In the aftermath, the newly formed state of Eden is led by the one newborn that survived that dreadful day, Uriel Noah of the House of Zion—the Guiding Light.

Two leaders, opposite sides.

Innocent, untouched, and pure, Uriel is a messiah. He fulfills a purpose that he was born to, but is he happy?

Raze is the leader of the cyborg resistance. His objective, to take down the Guiding Light.

A couple hundred years into the dystopic future two factions clash. The cyborgs want to live and the humans claim they're impure, inferior, and should be destroyed. Loved the premise and while it was not complicated there were some nice twists in the story.

I will read this, despite the title that makes me believe that one of the MCs wants to kill the other.

I was pleasantly surprised by this book. Although it exhibits insta-love, I can sort of excuse it in these shorter books. (This one is just at 200 pages--there just isn't enough time for a slow-build relationship and a plot in 200 pages.)

It is an mlm sci-fi book, and those usually fall into one of two categories: xenophilia (hot for alien) or cyborg/robot love. This book, unsurprisingly, falls into the latter category, but this isn't a bad thing.

I found Uriel and Raze interesting characters, b

Twenty years after a deadly virus attacked all cyborgs, the world has been reborn and led by the only newborn who’s purely human and survived the virus. Uriel Noah of the House of Zion is considered the Guiding Light, a healer and savior to all those who survived… except to the resistance, who are skeptical of the power Uriel is said to possess. Raze’s father is dying and the only person who could possibly save him is the very person the resistance believes

4.75 stars!

Wow this is the very first sci fi gay romance I've ever read! And I loved the experience!

Though I don't and will never understand instant attraction which seems to happen in most romances nowadays, the story with Raze and Uriel was still very sweet and romantic. Also, I suspect that the instant, electrical attraction Uriel and Raze feel towards each other, might be similar to the immediate attraction werewolves feel when they first set sight on their true mate. It may seem strange for

4.5 Stars

In this futuristic world, cyborgs – people part machine and part human – are the norm leaving room for a cyber-virus to devastate the planet. A new society rises from the ashes of what was once the USA calling the new country Eden.

The world building was great and the setup for the story imaginative. At first, I found Uriel’s situation a little implausible but things were revealed that made everything make sense. I was drawn to his plight and felt

I started off with high hopes for this book. I even enjoyed it in the beginning. the ham handed love at first sight SOULMATES after 2 seconds thing bothered me, but I could live with it. Or so I told myself. Until I got to the end and was filled with utter disappointment. Perhaps this was just NOT my cup of tea.

The romance felt so rushed and then everything else felt rushed too. This did not feel like a proper Science Fiction novel to me. It felt like a mainstream romance novel with Sci Fi trap

This one started out better than I expected, with a not too simple plot, and characters with real motivations. But it turned out to be too easy. Raze fell too far too fast. Uriel became too powerful and too immortal. The new clone character brought in at the end was too convenient. But the m/m sex was totally hot. I guess I should have known that this is a whole genre

4 out of 5 stars, only because the writing wasn't as tight and polished as I like and there were a couple of inconsistencies. Great story nonetheless, however a caution for those of you who hate it: MAJOR insta-love.

Dreamspinner Press: Electrify His Heart by Alana Ankh 1 4 Sep 16, 2014 02:18AM  
ALANA ANKH is a hopeless romantic. Once upon a time—no, not in the Stone Ages, but when Alana was a nosy teenager—she lived and breathed mainstream romance, but after she discovered m/m…. Well, her fate was sealed.

Regardless of the genre, Alana thinks love can be painful, heartbreaking, but also fun, corny, and a little silly. Love is different for everyone and anyone—and in her books, she tries t
