Add to Wish List
Gay / Lesbian | Science Fiction
Riv is a man adrift, hoping that running supplies for
ReliefCorp will restore his faith in mankind—and in
himself. Deep in the war-torn Maltana rainforest, he
stumbles upon a local bar that suits his mood: good food,
bad attitude. The entertainment, though, is unexpected. A
skilled piano player who avoids eye contact, flinches when
anyone approaches…and warns Riv of an ambush by tapping
out the planetary anthem for Riv’s homeworld of Karibee.
The least Riv can do for the mute piano man, “Ducks”, is
take him to the nearest spaceport for help. On their
harrowing journey to escape Maltana, Riv makes a
horrifying discovery. Ducks endured torture that scarred
his mind as well as his body. Still, before he leaves the
man safely in a treatment facility, Riv manages to earn
what little trust Ducks has to give.
Months later they reconnect, and while it’s clear their
instant attraction was no fluke, there’s still a piece
missing. Ducks’ voice. To help him find it again, Riv will
have to expose the painful past that tore a hole in his
own life. And hope that together, their ragged edges will
fit together to form a whole.
