Liam Lansing is heir to a prominent family of bio-modified vampires. That is, until he chooses the wrong lover and is cast down to the Gutter to scrape for his life.
Daniel Harding is heir to Cybernetix and a prince of the corporate Sky. That is, until his ideology drives his father to put a price on his head, forcing him into the Gutter.
But Daniel and Liam won’t vanish meekly into the smog. Together, they plan to rip open the hidden corruption that runs the Sky—for vengeance, for justice, and for hope. They strike against the corporations in a daring raid. When everything goes wrong, Daniel must betray his core beliefs to save the man he loves and protect his dangerous secret. Only through courage in the face of death—or worse—might he and Liam change the world they live in and create something new under the sun.
“Something New Under the Sun” by L.A. Witt is an adrenalin-filled, memorable read. It’s got something for everyone: fabulous plot, gripping action, humor, romance and sizzling chemistry.
The story begins seamlessly within hours of where “Chip In His Shoulder” ends. Liam Lansing is a bio-modified vampire living in Gutter who has made his way as an assassin to survive after his family disowns and disinherits him for loving a human. Daniel Harding, the once heir to the sinister conglomerate Cybernetix is now living in Gutter with Liam after the two foil his father’s attempt to kill him. Liam and Daniel, abandoned by those who should have loved and kept them safe, unite to stop Daniel’s father and Cybernetix in this futuristic future world of haves and have-nots.
L.A. Witt delivers a gripping read, filled with outstanding world building, wicked surprises and taut suspense as the two main characters attempt to stay true to their own principles as they rediscover love and relearn the meaning of commitment. Bonded by love and necessity, they fight to save themselves, their families and the people of Sky and Gutter from Daniel’s father. They revel in the reawakening of love and understanding of choices each has made that brought them to where they stand.
As hardened as Liam and Daniel have become, you will be invested in their relationship through poignant moments of vulnerability and tenderness shown in this story. The sex is smoking to put it mildly. What each man is willing to give up for the other is staggering as they realign their thinking to make their quest successful. The roadblock between Liam and Daniel has always been Liam’s use of bio-modification. When desperate measures are called for, Daniel must decide whether the heart of the man counts more than bio-modifications as he decides if he will do the unthinkable. With their lives on the line, these impossible decisions become life and death choices that could save them or destroy them before they have the chance to fight.
The cast of secondary characters including Gizmo, Venus, and Felix, are fabulous and perfectly woven into the story, creating an eclectic band of fighters for the cause while giving Liam and Daniel’s relationship depth and empathy. I really cared about each one of them.
OK, I loved the story — every word of it. “Something New Under the Sun” is a heart-pounding, sit on the edge of your seat narrative. It is a roller coaster ride that will grab you and hold you until its heart-racing end. With money to buy, here’s hoping there is a third one on the horizon.
