      Jacinto's Voyage is a remarkably well crafted short story. Set in what could be a post apocalyptic earth, a crew of mercenaries are in desperate need of some spare parts for their aging ship, the Alessa. Once there they must barter with a ragtag group of gun-toting humans who, after initially wanting to blow their heads off, come up with the makings of a deal that will ensure Captain Dane and his crew the very part they need. Unfortunately the deal includes hunting down and killing an alien bein [...]

      [image error]Offered FREE from the M/M Romance Group, Love is Always Write event.2.5 stars I love me a good sci-fi romance, and while this was OK, I feel like it had the makings to be so much greater. This exact story but lengthened to allow for more of a connection between Dane and Jace would have really sucked me in. So while I liked the plot, I was left feeling a little flat. Most of the time Dane just talked about wanting Jace, although he does comment that he sees his younger self in the ma [...]

      Really enjoyed this - some really sweet moments. And some really funny lines, as I expect from Daniel - it is a talent to thread a bit of humour through your story and not to be out of place - he does this brilliantly ! I know, having read and loved his Daeva book that his world building is excellent - his descriptive writing has such great balance, clear and concise - never too wordy, just enough to transport the reader right into that space. Im not normally a Scifi fan but this genre is growin [...]

      Great short story. Had some nice tension and mystery, a dash of romance and can't go wrong w/ a leopard for a pet.

    • Gabbo Parra says:

      This is a beautiful action-packed, angst-filled story. All characters, including the secondary ones, were likable and (in their own way) unique, as much as the usual members of a spacecraft crew can be individually unique.I only have two comments, or more like things I would have loved to see handled in a different manner. Foremost, that first time on all fours, seems a little detached for the kind of attraction I perceived between Jace and Dane. I'm all for doggie style (don't get me wrong), bu [...]

      3.5 starsDane Stiger is a deserter and he's on the run, becoming merc along the way. Jacinto (or Jace) is a human he meets in one of the voyage -- he cannot remember his prior life (including his name). Then a visit to one of the backwater planets brings Jace's memory back to the surface.I'm not big on sci-fi stories so I'm not hurrying to read this. However, I remember liking Daniel Kaine's other book, Dawn of Darkness, so decided to give this a try (plus, it's free :p)This one is pretty good. [...]

      Intriguing idea but not handled with enough depth and character developement. Would love more of this story and setting written with more detail and heart. Also spell check does not correct for the wrong word used but spelled correctly.

    • Whit says:

      More please! You can't give us these characters and Spot just to stop at this! They have to have more adventures and take on the Coalition. Find the other missing boys?

    • Adrastea says:

      3.5 Futuristic, other worldly setting. A slow building sexual tension between the two male mc's This was written pretty well and it had a decent storyline going on, being that it was a shorty.

    • Bookbee says:

      I have a soft spot for anti-heroes - those bad boys that live by their own morality code but have a warm, kind heart!

    • Victoria says:

      Great sci-fi story, with tension, action and romance. Thank you Daniel A. Kaine, for donating your story, time and talent.

    • Sierra says:

      I really loved this story right up until it ended so abruptly. I had downloaded it as a freebie but didn't realize until the note at the end that it was written for the used-to-be-annual Don't Read in the Closet event where pieces are usually short story length. I was left wanting to know more about Jacinto's history, to see more of the ship's voyages, to see conflict and growth in Jace and Dane's relationship--just more. I would really love it if the author took this and developed it into a ful [...]

      Maybe I should have known better. Unfortunately this long short story came off as a poor imitation of serenity and aliens with an added gay soft core love story. The writing itself was pretty decent so really a 2.5 star book. I do think that perhaps I would have liked it more if it had been three or four times longer to allow more time to get to know the characters and therefore have the gratuitous final chapter earned rather than just dropped there.

    • Emily says:

      This was a fun, cute little read. I loved the sci-fi, futuristic element, which went along well with the photo. I liked Dane a lot. He's not your typical hero (heck, he's more like an anti-hero), but he's a bad guy with a good side. I loved Jacinto and Spot as well, and I'd love to see future books with these characters.

    • Furio says:

      This SF M/M short story is enjoyable enough but feels underdeveloped. I needed more pages to get to know and like its characters.Despite a couple of typos, writing is good.P.S. Leopards have yellow/greenish eyes, not black.

    • Gordon Love says:

      Some plot holes which could have done with being resolved don't spoil a short and interesting encounter with the two main characters, gay in a universe organised against them. Intriguing nasties as opponents.

    • Larry Arnold says:

      i enjoyed this book a lot. hope that the author can write more. this is most def a rereadable futuristic story

      I was underwhelmed by the big revelation. But this got four stars from me because of Spot.

      I really liked this story. It had a great sense of place along with some really memorable characters. I honestly can't wait to read other stories by this author.

      Cute book. Not long enough for me.
