Never let go.

Weighed down by scandal, Captain Jamie Callahan must choose between saving his family’s reputation and his father’s political aspirations, or taking down the enemy once and for all. Choosing one over the other will have lasting repercussions he can’t escape. Whatever path Jamie ultimately picks, Staff Sergeant Kyle Brannigan will be right by his side to face the consequences. Kyle knows in a situation like this the only way out is through. Together they can make it to the other side, but surviving that journey will take everything they have.

One last chance.

Agent Sean Delaney is learning what it means to be part of Alpha Team through trial by fire. He wouldn’t change it for the world, nor would he give up the life he’s building with Staff Sergeant Alexei Dvorkin. But their time together is threatened by outside forces they can’t outrun. Having put the nightmare of Boston behind him, Alexei is focused on keeping his family safe, but he can’t have eyes on everyone. Alexei knows he can’t ignore the danger on the horizon, and when it strikes, he is unprepared for the tragedy it leaves in its wake.

Risking it all.

The odds are stacked ever higher against Alpha Team, and outmaneuvering a precog is a daunting, almost impossible task. Jamie knows something has to give, and when it does, it just might break him the way nothing else in his life ever could.

In the Requiem is a 122k word steamy gay sci-fi military romance with a mostly HEA and concludes this main plot-arc of the series. There is military violence within the story that might not be suitable for everyone, as well as explicit intimate scenes not suitable for readers under the age of 18. This is a direct sequel to In the Blood and Out of the Ashes. Reading the previous books in this series would be helpful in enjoying this one.


Phew! This book put me through a whole range of emotions. I have said it before and I’m going to say it again: The author is really MEAN! Did we really deserve all that pain??!! But I do trust her, so even though I was was put through the wringer, I had absolute faith.

This is the fifth book in Metahuman Files and I keep falling in love with the characters and the writing. The author is so talented that I feel like I’m experiencing every scene. Like the previous book, we follow both Jaime & Kyle and Alexei & Sean. I really like how the two relationships are balanced.

The Alpha team is as badass as ever and their devotion to Jaime is heartwarming. I love all the teammates the dynamics among them. If you’re a fan of sci-fi, then this is one of the best series ever. It has action, romance and super steamy sex scenes with an HEA!

Super excited to read Liam’s book next, which is the last in the series!
