Canada, 2165 AD. The Water Wars and a decimated economy have taken their toll. Anyone who doesn’t live in a military-patrolled metropolis lives in a clan. But being in a clan doesn’t mean safety.
And for a Ven like Roan Lee, it doesn’t matter where he lives. Safety is a luxury. So is freedom.
Roan is desperate to escape the governtary’s exploitation and torture. He is nothing to them but 54σK1, an artifact born from a genetic mishap. When the chance to escape arises, he makes a run for it—and encounters the lover from his past, twisting his future into a second chance he never expected.
As leaders of Clan Teach, Jace Ama and his wife, Cayra Diega, have enough difficulty keeping their people safe. When Roan is thrown to their feet as a prisoner, their marriage becomes an additional challenge. Jace still loves Roan, but where does that leave Cayra?
For the Clan is an adult science fiction novel filled with a hot and sizzling romance.
When I first saw this book in Xpresso Book Tours, I already like to read it because the cover attracted me and I feel like this book will be good. I also didn’t pay attention to the synopsis because I want to be surprised by what the story will be, and I was shocked when I’d found that this is an MM romance. This book is the first romance book that I’d read, and the lovers are both guys.
This is a story of a boy taken from his home when he was made as a weapon by the government and when he felt tired of what they are doing to him and can’t take it anymore, he finds a way to escape them. After he gets away, he finds himself back home again. The problem that he will encounter aside from the government is seeing his past lover, which is the leader of the clan he is currently residing and that person is already married.
I liked the concept used in this story, but I can’t fully enjoy it because it lacks a back story to tell me what happened before and how the world turned like that. The actions are also good, but it is not that awesome because the characters solved it effortlessly and I didn’t even feel that they struggled on resolving it.
The world-building is okay, but a lot of loopholes was also found here, but because of the characters, that really justified their role in this book, I gave this book a chance.
Overall, this is a good book, but the only thing I dislike is the lack of supporting stories on how the world changed.
