The Eve of War by Rae Gee
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I give 4.5 stars to this awesome read, the next installment in the Veetu Industries series.
The time of war is coming ever closer. Cedo, Billy, Erus, and Francis have returned from Dynasty and have started preparing for what is to come. Cedo is still torn between his love for Billy and his love for his master as well as longing for freedom. The three characters have really evolved since Mars on the Rise and likewise their relationships with each other. Erus is even more accepting of Billy and things definitely heat up.
We see more world building as well in this installment. Erus and Cedo travel to London to help plan for the coming war. While there we see life in the city as well as the social stigma against those who are different or live outside the mainstream of society.
There's a lot that happens with war preparation, its relevant to any society or time frame: men are called up to fight, governments do things they shouldn't in the name of progress, people lose those they love. All these things are very present in this read.
This is a great next installment to a great series. Its best to read it in succession to get the feel for the relationships and what is happening at this point. Love it! Can't wait for the next one.
