BLOG TOUR, #GIVEAWAY, & REVIEW - For the Clan by Archer Kay Leah


For the Clan
Archer Kay Leah
Publication date: May 25th 2016
Genres: Adult, Romance, Science Fiction
Canada, 2165 AD. The Water Wars and a decimated economy have taken their toll. Anyone who doesn’t live in a military-patrolled metropolis lives in a clan. But being in a clan doesn’t mean safety.
And for a Ven like Roan Lee, it doesn’t matter where he lives. Safety is a luxury. So is freedom.
Roan is desperate to escape the governtary’s exploitation and torture. He is nothing to them but 54σK1, an artifact born from a genetic mishap. When the chance to escape arises, he makes a run for it—and encounters the lover from his past, twisting his future into a second chance he never expected.
As leaders of Clan Teach, Jace Ama and his wife, Cayra Diega, have enough difficulty keeping their people safe. When Roan is thrown to their feet as a prisoner, their marriage becomes an additional challenge. Jace still loves Roan, but where does that leave Cayra?

4 out of 5 (very good)


Roan and Jace are only 16-years-old when For the Clan begins, and are already in as much of a relationship as they can have. That is caught short though when the government turns up, and captures Roan. What happens in the interim is given in some detail, but also left to the imagination. Roan has an opportunity to escape, and takes it. He goes as far as he can, but is found by some sentries of one of the Clans. He is taken into custody, where he finds out that it is Clan Teach and Jace is now Clan Leader. Oh, and he's also married!

This is a Dystopian M/M M/F/M Ménage Science Fiction book. In other words, this is a story that almost defies being put into specific genres. It is very well written, with no editing or grammatical errors to disrupt the reading flow. There is action, suspense, betrayal and hope, as well as the relationship issues which actually don't take over. Everyone gets a say and things turn out a bit unexpectedly. 

If you are looking for a read that is different from the rest, then I can definitely recommend this, and I hope to see more in this series.

* I received this book from Xpresso Book Tours in return for a fair and honest review. *

Author Bio:
Archer Kay Leah was raised in Canada, growing up in a port town at a time when it was starting to become more diverse, both visibly and vocally. Combined with the variety of interests found in Archer’s family and the never-ending need to be creative, this diversity inspired a love for toying with characters and their relationships, exploring new experiences and difficult situations.
Archer most enjoys writing speculative fiction and is engaged in a very particular love affair with fantasy, especially when it is dark and emotionally charged. When not reading and writing for work or play, Archer is a geek with too many hobbies and keeps busy with other creative endeavors, a music addiction, and whatever else comes along. Archer lives in London, Ontario with a same-sex partner and their cat.
