Rynnis Lort stands accused of the death
of his lover, Lynnette Dotall, but it is all a result of a
stupid mistake Ė experimenting with the drug hextasy.
Still, Rynn stands accused of her murder by her grieving
parents. But the god of Justice, Surseine, seems to be on
Rynnís side as his trial will be presided over by a Surseine
judge Ė a man capable of hearing the truth or lies in
peopleís words and, if needed, the judge can compel people
to answer truthfully. Rynn is exonerated, but left
homeless. The local sheriff is sympathetic to Rynnís plight
and arranges for him to leave with the judge. Rynn soon
finds that he is hardly prepared for the worldliness of
Judge Shasertai and his entourage. Will he ever adjust
enough to become a permanent part of the group?
Judge Shasertai is out on a crusade to
rid the world of the drug hextasy which kills most of its
users. However, the mastermind behind the making and
distribution of this drug remains elusive and out Shasí
grasp. When Shas encounters Rynn he is completely surprised
by the manís absolute honesty and innocence. A welcome
respite in Shasí world. All these qualities make Rynn
irresistible. Shas knows that anything beyond friendship
with Rynn is impossible as Rynn is as straight as the day is
long, while Shas is very, very gay.
When circumstances push them together
into a very compromising position it forces Rynn to face
some realities about himself and his appreciation for Shas.
Will Shas ever be so brave as to face the feelings Rynn
brings to the surface?
Sursein Judgment is a
very interesting and revealing tale that does not follow
what one usually expects when picking up a book by Jet
Mykles. This book certainly contains the trademark
eroticism, angst, and love that Jet Mykles always delivers,
but the setting is a mix of historical fantasy and the
tortured hero is the experienced man, not the novice.
Regardless, Jet Mykles does not disappoint, delivering
characters that are touching and believable within a plot
that will keep you turning the pages quickly. Rynn is an
enchanting character with his innocence about the world and
his unfailing ability to remain honest even if he is
uncomfortable. Shas, for all his brashness and flippancy,
takes his job as an emissary of the god Surseine very
seriously. When his faith is tested it takes Rynnís belief
in Shas to bring him back into the fold of his god. When
Rynn and Shas finally come together after fully
acknowledging their love for one another, the explosion is
cataclysmic for both of them. Sursein Judgement
will grip you in ways that will make you live the emotional
journey along with Rynn and Shas. Pick up Sursein
Judgment when you are looking for a little bit of
angst and passion along with love between two hot men. You
wonít be disappointed!
