Samhain Publishing Authors Sunny Moraine and Lisa Soem Receive Publishers Weekly Starred Review for LINE AND ORBIT


Cincinnati, OH (PRWEB) January 22, 2013

International publisher Samhain Publishing? today announced that authors Sunny Moraine and Lisa Soem have received a Publishers Weekly starred review for their male/male sci-fi fantasy novel-length debut, LINE AND ORBIT.

LINE AND ORBIT is the story of an outcast who finds unexpected love in the arms of his enemy, set against a compelling and fully-realized science fiction world. We are delighted with the starred review for Lisa and Sunny, and thrilled that such talented authors have received this recognition, said Samhain publisher Lindsey Faber. We look forward to continuing to work with them on future books.

The full description of LINE AND ORBIT is:

What hes been taught to fear could be his destinyand his only hope.

Adam Yuga, a rising young star in the imperialist Terran Protectorate, is on the verge of a massive promotionuntil a routine physical exam reveals something less than perfection. Genetic flaws are taboo, and Adam soon discovers theres a thin line between rising star and starving outcast.

Stripped of wealth and position, stricken with a mysterious, worsening illness, Adam resorts to stealing credits to survive. Moments from capture by the Protectorate, help arrives in the form of Lochlan, a brash, cocksure Bideshi fighter.

Now the Bideshi, a people long shunned by the Protectorate, are the only ones who will offer him shelter. As Adam learns the truth about the mysterious, nomadic people he was taught to fear, Lochlan offers him not just shelterbut a temptation Adam can only resist for so long.

Struggling to adapt to his new life, Adam discovers his illness hides a terrible secret, one that the Protectorate will stop at nothing to conceal. Time is growing short, and he must find the strength to close a centuries-old rift, accept a new identityand hold on to a love that could cost him everything.

And the complete review of LINE AND ORBIT from Publishers Weekly is:

(Starred)

Moraine (In the Pale Moonlight) and debut author Soem collaborate on a deliciously fulfilling gay sci-fi romance. Adam Yuga is on the fast track to the upper echelon of the Terran Protectorate, the dominant force in the galaxy. Members of the Protectorate have been genetically engineered and carefully bred for generations, so when testing reveals Adam has a genetic flaw, he becomes persona non grata. Adams downward spiral throws him in the path of Lochlan dBideshi, whose nomadic people believe in magic and nature and directly oppose the Protectorates cold science. As the mystery of the Protectorates obsession with Adam deepens and the two societies head inexorably toward a crisis, Adam and Lochlans uneasy truce develops into love worth dying for. Readers will fall for the engaging dialogue, wonderfully fleshed-out characters, a sexy and realistic romance, fully realized world-building, and a genuinely interesting science fictional core issue to work through. This phenomenal novel marks Moraine and Soem as authors to watch. (Feb.)
