Unimaginable horrors had been their daily lives before Shay and her mate Raerei broke free. Nowadays the two fly aboard their own small ship aptly named Crimson Shackles.

Picking up supplies on yet another crude station, Shay decided to check out the local slave auction where unfortunately the pirate Skand Toolon is also in attendance.  A young man no taller than Shay was dragged onto the block and Skand began outbidding everyone else but something inside Shay made her make a decision that will change the course of her life and that of her mate.

It is no easy task to sneak the purchased slave aboard ship but Shay manages it.  Never before has she seen anyone like Jaed’aden who she nicknames Jaed, yet he stirs something in her and its not motherly. Raerei on the other hand is not happy about the new ship mate, at least not at first. Strange things begin to happen on board ship such as receiving coordinates to a system they’ve never explored before plus information concerning Jaed’s younger sister.  Shay, Raerei and Jaed’s feelings for each other will be put to the ultimate test in the coming weeks.  They will face possible capture, death and unknown enemies as well as question their belief in their gods before the journey is over.

Intense and captivating characters are just a few of the reasons you need to check out Crimson Shackles by talented author Theolyn Boese.  Crimson Shackles is the second story in the Ta’e’sha Caesurae, a branch of the Ta’e’sha Chronicles.  This story can be understood on its’ own although you should check out the rest of this popular series.  A fascinating character driven story, Crimson Shackles ultimately explores deeply flawed, slightly broken people who show readers what true character really is.  It’s not a perfect story but at the core there is such ‘heart’ that Crimson Shackles will stay with you when the story ends.  I Joyfully Recommend Crimson Shackles for anyone who loves a solid sci-fi romance truly out of this world.
