IAMOS, S.C.D. 8378 One choice was all it took to put two worlds in jeopardy—but that choice could be the thing that saves them both.
By choosing to betray the geroi, Nadin saved the lives of her friends in the future, but it may have cost her own. Imprisoned and sentenced to a fate worse than death, her only hope of rescue may lie in trusting the one person her heart tells her to distrust most: Ceilos, her one-time partner and a traitor in his own right. But accepting Ceilos’ help may be the only hope Nadin has of reuniting with Isaak... and saving both Iamos and Mars.
Time is running out. Something is coming, something powerful enough to change the face of the entire solar system. If Nadin and Isaak can’t figure out how to stop it, all of Iamos will be destroyed.
Little do they know that’s been the Liberator’s plan all along...

I really don't want to be one of those authors who rates their own book 5 stars. But the book isn't even written yet and it already has multiple one-star reviews from accounts that coincidentally just happen to have rated every other book on the LGBT lists in which this book is included with one star. This isn't right and it isn't fair. At least give the book a fighting chance.
I have no problem with readers disliking my books; in fact, I typically don't read my own reviews, because I believe that they're for readers and that authors should stay out of it. Once this book is actually published, you can bet I will avoid this Goodreads page like the plague. But it's kind of hard to miss when your book that you haven't even written yet has multiple one-star ratings.
