The Klockwerk Kraken
Editing: Kris Jacen
As the supply shipments stop coming, Teo Houdin needs all his tentacles to keep his waystation bar open. Facing a riot by thirsty miners stranded in the backwater of the galaxy, Teo helps a greenie space pilot buy a ship in return for a regular haul of liquor. But he longs for the courage to invite the enigmatic spacer to fill his lonely bed as well.
Still smarting from his newly implanted navigational ports, Jimenez knows owning his own ship will prevent him from ever being bought and sold again. For a former slave, transporting cargo through the emptiness of space sounds like paradise, but after meeting the compassionate and sexy Teo, his heart feels empty, too.
At the edge of the galaxy's spiral arm, can Teo convince Jimenez that the heart has its own tentacles and theirs should be entwined forever?
"It's amazing seeing the characters grow and change into the strong well defined individuals that are loved by readers. Aidee certainly knew what she was doing when she wrote these characters. I hope she continues more of this wonderful world!!" - Amazon reviewer Angel_T Read the full review here.
"I have to say, I was wonderfully entertained reading The Klockwerk Kraken. The MCs Teo and Jimenez are fleshed out character with their flaws and passions well written. The SciFi aspect part of the story is solid. I found myself wishing I was at the bar being served by Teo and being able to meet the patrons. Of course I found Teo's family wonderful and as the book ended I found myself wanting more. I cannot wait for another book by the author." - Amazon reviewer Matt Ortiz Read the full review here.
