Destiny rewards those who embrace it.
Chris and his alien soul matches, Lasar and Nary, are ready to deepen their new bond as mates. It’s also time for Chris to begin his training as a Nasha, or sub, and for Nary to embrace his new role as Ahna, or Dom, to Chris. As three in the soul match, they are unique. Not only have Alasharians never matched with a human, they’ve never matched as three.
What makes them special also puts them in danger. The Supreme Soul Healer warned Chris that many changes were ahead, ones even more startling than the original invasion. They must keep their bond a secret until they know who they can trust.
As Ahna to both Nary and Chris, Lasar carries the responsibility of protecting his mates. A proud Alasharian warrior and commander, he’ll stop at nothing to keep them safe and to help Chris find his missing mother and sisters. To make sure that Chris’ cousin Morgan isn’t sent back to the slave cages, he’s also arranged for a fellow commander to take Morgan into his care when he returns from battle.
Lasar and Nary are invited to a pleasure party by the Alasharian’s leader, the Nall, and are forced to bring Chris and Morgan. But a terrifying turn of events sets in motion what might be the beginning of the end for them all, unless they can resist the void.

In the relationship between Lasar, Nary and Chris, Lasar is both Nary and Chris’s Ahna, Nary was only Lasar’s Nasha but now he is both Nasha and Chris’s Ahna. Because there has never been a three-way bonding with Alasharians Lasar, Nary and Chris must keep theirs hidden for as long as they possibly can. This becomes especially difficult as Lasar’s brother-in-law is the Nall (Supreme Commander).
Chris has just learnt from The Supreme Soul Healer (the Sha Sha Ar) that he is central to a supposed destiny that involve both humans and aliens! All they have to do is try to resist the void, the same void that destroyed the Alasharians planet before they invaded earth. And now he is freaking out!!
Chris, Lasar and Nary have just bonded (had sex) together for the first time. It takes days before they are properly bonded, where they can stand to be away from each other for any length of time and when they’re not in a state of permanent exhaustion from having sex all the time. All three are finding it confusing trying to understand each other, especially when Chris uses slang words.
It’s during their meditation sessions that Chris “sees” that his mother and sisters are still alive but it’s imperative that they be found as quickly as possible. Every time Chris gets close to having something big revealed there is a blackness that gets in the way, it’s not until he’s talking with Lasar and Nary that they all realise that the blackness is the void! It proves to be quite precarious to develop and maintain a relationship but the three of them are succeeding when it all comes crashing to a halt when the Nall demands Lasar and Nary attend his pleasure party and they must bring Chris and his cousin Morgan. I’m going to leave my review here as I will probably say too much and give away too much of the story so you’re going to have to get your own copy to find out what happens!
