Review for To Save A Life (A'yen's Legacy #3) by Rachel Leigh Smith

A’yen's loved ones are under attack. To save them, he'll risk everything. 

Half the Lokmane are free and the resettling of Lok’ma is in progress. A'yen is crowned king, but it isn't stopping his enemies. Someone is after Ro, and the woman he's falling in love with is caught in the middle. 

When Fae is injured in a cave-in at a dig site, A'yen knows who’s to blame. Proving it is the hard part. Things get worse when he walks into a political trap, and Ro is framed for murder. Saving his reputation is easy compared to saving Ro. Ro’s demons come for him, taking him back to a life not worth living. 

A'yen races to save Ro before he can act on his deepest desire: killing his tormentor. Happily ever after can't happen if Ro is dead.

My Review

Rachel Leigh Smith's "To Save a Life" is the third book in her A'yen's Legacy series. It’s an interesting science fiction romance series. Sort of “Stargate” meets “In Distress” by Caethes Faron (which is a M/M read that’s very well done). This time we get to have a more in depth look at Ro. Ro has been marked as a sex slave and he can get into minds. Once again, all of the characters are amazingly deep and the story line has lots of complex twists and turns. Many of the intimate scenes are done with a more closed door approach, describing the beginning of the act or using only vague terms. Some readers prefer that, but I like a little more naughty stuff! There will be a #4 and I can't wait to read it.

4.5 out of 5 stars

Just in case you missed it, here's my review of the first two books in the series:

Rachel Leigh Smith’s "My Name Is A'yen" and “The King’s Mistress” are the first and second books in her A’yen’s Legacy series. It’s an interesting science fiction romance series. Sort of “Stargate” meets “In Distress” by Caethes Faron (which is a M/M read that’s very well done). The series is daring – I like that she took the chance to have the leading man have a history with another man. The main characters, Fae and A’yen are both complex and multifaceted. Definitely a series for smart readers to really dig into. #2 is definitely not a standalone book, you need to read #1 first in order to understand the intricate details of this mythology and to get to know the full ensemble of characters. My only small issue is that I wish we had gotten more detailed descriptions of the intimate scenes – seems like we get the start of the scene or a recap of what happened, but never a nice, full-on sexy scene.

4 out of 5 stars
