Review of Something New Under the Sun (Falling Sky, #2)

Title: Something New Under the Sun
Series: Falling Sky #2
Authors: L.A. Witt
Source: NetGalley
Review Genre: M/M Futuristic Erotica
Length: Novel, 212 pgs
Reviewed by: KindleRomance

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.

Wow!! I was hooked from the beginning and the action never let up. Fast paced action with two guys who truly loved each other and would gladly make real sacrifices to help the other out. We are introduced to a world where the haves and have-nots live very different lives down to the air that they breathe. Liam and Daniel are amazing characters and work well together, as much as opposites can! Liam has lived a dangerous life for the last few years, and he's a very successful contract killer. He is more than ready to try to take down Daniel's father and his organization. Daniel, the man who is afraid of heights and who gets squeamish at the sight of blood, is not ready, but is certainly willing, to help Liam out. They make a great team with enjoyable banter. The story offered up a few little twists and surprises, but there was never any angst between the two guys which is one of my favorite types of stories. The ending and epilogue were pure perfection!

I highly recommend that you read the first book, A Chip in His Shoulder, before this one. It provides the necessary history to make this story really shine. It was also an excellent read!

This book contains male/male love scenes in graphic detail. There were only a few sex scenes, and they certainly didn't overwhelm the story. There were also a few descriptive medical scenes when they were adding or removing mods. The squeamish can skip these few pages with no impact on the story.
