You learn your wisest lessons from your enemies.

The assassination Chris Gibson and John Soong are sent to carry out doesn't go quite as planned. Turnabout is foreplay. High-end Market Garden rentboys Tristan and Jared have found their niche. They arrive at the location to find their target, Russian mob affiliate Andrei Voronin has already been shot and is barely clinging to life.

Never stop fighting  .

I'm an author with a day job and big plans; I have written circa 60-70 novels, novellas and short stories - at some point I'll come back with an exact estimate, but that's a pretty solid guess at this point. I've had not one, but two agents, won many Rainbow and other awards, finalled in the Lambda Literary Award, and my books have been published by big and small publishers, ranging from Random House/Heyne, Harlequin/Carina Press to Samhain Publishing and Dreamspinner Press. Assuming, of course, you survive the encounter.

You learn your wisest lessons from your enemies. Assuming, of course, you survive the encounter. Kendras is a casualty of war: injured, penniless, and quite possibly the last surviving member of the only family he's ever known-the elite fighting force known as the Scorpions. When a steel-eyed stranger offers him medicine and shelter in exchange for submission and a secret task, Kendras has no choice but to accept. He is a Scorpion; he'll do whatever it takes to survive. But his true goal is to rebuild the Scorpions. Neither Steel's possessive nature nor Kendras's shattered foot can keep him from finding the last of his brothers... or the mysterious leader of the Scorpions, a man who held Kendras's heart long before Steel tried to take it for himself. The goal is simple, the situation anything but. To rescue his leader and escape from Steel for good, Kendras must fight through a morass of politics and intrigue, where enemies are allies and even allies have hidden agendas.
I loved Scorpion the first time I read it a couple of years ago, and was hoping there would be a sequel. Seems like there is one in the works now! I don't know what was different about this version of Scorpion compared to the one I read before, but I was happy to read it again and totally enjoyed it. I love Kendras, he's such a contrast. Hard bad-ass man, that wants to be wanted and needed by one man so badly. He gets used and abused, injured, beaten, saved, and eventually needed and loved. Such a great world and characters, with some really hot sex.

One of my favorite Aleksandr Volinov books! Can't wait for the next one....
I really enjoyed this one. Kendras is saved from death and rape at the hands of his executioner by someone known only as The Officer. He learns how to fight and depend on other men in his unit. He spends a few days with each man, learns his strength and weaknesses and how to support each one until they become a cohesive and effective fighting force. They are called the Scorpions, a division known as the 17th. In the remains of a militaristic society, each of the city-states is trying to find its way. Only The Officer knows why they fight for a specific side.

The 17th had fought for the King of Dalmanye, but not wanting to pay the survivors their full price, he separated the survivors. Kendras is by himself and his foot is badly broken. He meets a mercenary named Steel and sells himself to him. As soon as he is able, he deserts and goes to find the remainder of his unit. He arranges the burial and care of his two wounded survivors and their slave and goes back to Steel and his masters, The Water Priests of Dalmanye. His devotion to his unit and The Officer never wavers as he finds a way to save them and becomes The Officer himself.

The storytelling was superb and the honest way Kendras lives his life is a great story. This is the story of his love for Andrastes and how he is willing to put his own life on the line for the chance to save him and continue the mission of his unit. The model of the unit is not unlike the Spartan units formed in youth and comradeship with lovers among the men for emotional support.
I really enjoyed the characters in this book. The two main protagonists were believable and their relationship was really engaging. There were some definition it surprise plot twists that really surprised me. The man on man sex scenes were not to over the edge. It was not a book only about sex. There really was plot and story.
Best West
This book has a very intimate and unique tone to it. It was like a quilt I was able to wrap around myself. A quilt that smells like strength, loyalty, pride and perseverance - but also doubt and failure. A quilt that has such beautiful, detailed embroidery of love, loss and comradeship on it. A quilt I would love to share with someone who'd feel the same about it and who'd know exactly what I mean. Because the thing is that while I read Aleksandr Voinov's writing, I already miss his sentences. With Scorpion it felt almost unbearable that someone can write so beautifully about war and warriors. The narration of the story is extremely sensuous and lovely.

And what a relief that this particular fantacy novel didn't start by listing names and things about numerous families and their kin! I've always found it aversive to first read hundreds of (or at least dozens of) pages family history before little something starts to happen with the storyline. I also hugely enjoyed the tempo of the story. It correlated nicely with the healing process of Kendras's injured leg. And it correlated with the facts that Kendras found the remaining Scorpions, found out that Adrastes was possibly alive and regained some feel of hope with those discoveries. The author wasn't afraid to sometimes hold the pace and other times to leap into action. The rhythm of the story reminded me of the beat of a battle. And as for myself, I would have wanted to linger among all the fascinating characters for the longest time, but I didn't seem to be able to put the book down after I started reading it!

I liked the fact that Adrastes's spirit and his instructions to the young Scorpion were with Kendras throughout the story tying it all together in a very effective way, and never letting Kendras to give up. In fact I can't stop wondering how someone's presence can be written in a story in such a solid and overwhelming way - although that person is not physically around the main character until later in the book. Because long before we meet Adrastes with the ocean priests, we already know him and we already admire him. And we desperately long to be with him. And when these two men are finally together everything else vanishes. The chemistry between them is downright intoxicating and intense. I found myself blushing several times just because I felt like an intruder in the middle of the most special moments between to persons who simply belong to each other.

Scorpion has so many wonderful, skillfully written characters in it that it would be a shame if we didn't hear more about these proud men in the future. I do admire the uncompromising and insightful way Aleksandr Voinov writes his characters. The men in this book were intriguing mixture of rough and sweet, brutal and tender. I loved to get a glimpse of Widow, Steel, the medic, Selvan... And now when I've read the very last page and the very last word I already crave for a new dose of Scorpions and Adrastes of Fetin.

Never stop writing, Aleksandr!

Really enjoyed this read, and hope to read more in this series. A greatly thought out plot, great character details, flaws and emotions. This book has an awesome amount of love as well as fighting, which is all that I can ask for!
Brick my own
I love this series can't wait to read the next one. Great characters and interesting story line. The story kept moving and was a long story. Didn't like the death of grey eyes. I would of liked to of seen him in his own story.
I had a hard time putting this one down. It made me want to read a lot more books like it. (Just wish I could find more that are cheap). This book was different than most of your m/m romances. It was suspenseful. That was a nice change. I recommend it.
I like the authors style, but I have to admit wasnt one of my favorites. Im on the fence about buying the sequal. I realize its more my internal issues than the story, just was left with a bad taste in my mouth so to speak.
