Breaker – Exile, Volume I, by the dynamic duo A.F. Henley & Kelly Wyre, is intense, mind-boggling, and otherworldly and it took a little bit of time for me to get the concept wrapped inside my brain of everything that was taking place. It moves with a fast-paced—cutting edge that keeps you on a suspended level of “OMG” and “WTH” - sometimes with both eyes open—sometimes only one.
"EVERYBODY MEETS THE DARK ALONE"
Eddie and Kaeva—both Estranged—separated by two completely different worlds—both dream, have a destiny—now their two worlds have collided and they must decide how they proceed from there.
Eddie is young and has spent his entire life under the negative thumb of a mother whom—by Eddie’s account—was ashamed of her son and wanted to hide his estrangement—and made him feel guilty for having it. This left a lasting effect on his psyche—causing low self-worth and ultimately will be the thing that he will work the hardest to reverse. Aside from this, however—which is quite remarkable considering—is quite the jokester, a real flirt, rather charming, has absolutely no filter, and he loves - LOVES - to get inside Kaeva’s space.
Now, Kaeva, is quite the opposite from our Eddie. He is gruff, bitter, shrewd, angry, A N G R Y. Did I mention he was gruff? Oh yes. . .well, he despises people in general—REALLY. Wants his space—free of anyone. Likes the quiet and likes being alone. He has his reasons and they are valid. He’s had a really hard life and his estrangement has forced him to seek the space and loneliness he now thrives. He’s furious when he is assigned to take on the newcomer, Eddie.
“Is your wife out?”
Kaeva set the candle down with a frown. “You really don’t get it, do you? There is no wife. There are no children. There are usually no house guests. What part of I can’t touch people are you missing?”
Eddie pulled his hands free and flailed them in the air. “I don’t f***ing know! It’s just. . .I mean. . .” He gestured around the room. “I assumed, I guess. This isn’t exactly what I imagined. It’s kind of pretty. You know?”
Surprisingly enough, Kaeva almost cracked a smile. “And just what, exactly, did you expect?”
“Wolves,” Eddie said without hesitation.
These two are like oil and water, hot and cold, sweet and sour, but Eddie has a lot of questions and he won’t be deterred by Kaeva’s rough manner or aggressive behavior. He’s persistent, not easily intimidated—quite the contrary—and he makes it known, early on, that if Kaeva’s interested he is more than willing to offer any sexual favors during his stay.
He’s fascinated by Kaeva, eager to learn and understand, but underneath his façade he is nervous and he has an ulterior motive that brought him to Exile—now he must decide if he wants to carry it out. Fate has spoken—brought these two men together—but visions leave more questions than answers and with time running out, will either man realize their destiny is right in front of them?
Breaker is a compelling read I found to be exhilarating in content with a descriptive narrative that kept me completely engrossed inside this fascinating world the authors created. It is made up of a whole host of secondary characters—each with their own estrangement—unique and challenging—working together to make Exile work for each citizen living there.
At the core—are Eddie and his reasons for coming to Exile—away from that he finds a gratifying and powerful connection to Kaeva—one that allows them to explore each other in a way that has never happened in Kaeva’s lifetime and it is breathtakingly beautiful. Kaeva finds himself feeling something he never thought he would have again—HOPE—as his resolve weakens for the younger man.
I still find myself with some confusion, some questions, things left unsolved, and I am going to assume that some of these things will continue to unravel as the series plays out. I am anxious to see Kaeva and Eddie—in light of the new arrangement—find their balance. Eddie can be very infuriating—for Kaeva’s mental stability—and I can’t imagine that changing. . .much. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and highly recommend it to others who love these plot devices.
This book started a bit slow, but it didn’t take long for me to get really engaged. Kaeva and Eddie are great characters with history and depth. I also appreciate that Kaeva is bisexual and black. Unfortunately ethnic minorities and bisexual characters are still somewhat rare from what I’ve seen in LGBTQ fiction, so this was refreshing.
Some deeply moving topics are explored in this book in an intelligent and compassionate way. I also love the world development. The social and scientific aspects are thought-provoking and engaging.
I wouldn’t call this a highly romantic or erotic story. But there is some good romantic tension and a few very steamy explicit scenes.
Breaker is the first part of a series, but I feel it can be read as a standalone book. It has a solid ending and feels like a complete story. That said, I’m really looking forward to exploring more of this world and these characters.
