Gay Friday: Gay Hunger Games?
Steven Dos Santos “The Culling”

Category: News – Darkstar – 07:45

The CullingHat Steven Dos Santos mit “The Culling“, dem Auftaktband einer Trilogie, eine Art Tribute von Panem mit schwuler Liebesgeschichte geschrieben?

So ausgedrückt klingt das ziemlich reisserisch, stimmts? Aber ich habe mir die Hörbuch-Version besorgt und das erste Viertel gehört, und das gefällt mir bisher ziemlich gut. (Extra lobend erwähnen muss ich den Sprecher, Josh Hurley, der sehr jung klingt und deshalb super passt!)

Worum geht’s:

Recruitment Day is here…if you fail, a loved one will die

For Lucian “Lucky” Spark, Recruitment Day means the Establishment, a totalitarian government, will force him to become one of five Recruits competing to join the ruthless Imposer task force. Each Recruit participates in increasingly difficult and violent military training for a chance to advance to the next level. Those who fail must choose an “Incentive”—a family member—to be brutally killed. If Lucky fails, he’ll have to choose death for his only living relative: Cole, his four-year-old brother.

Lucky will do everything he can to keep his brother alive, even if it means sacrificing the lives of other Recruits’ loved ones. What Lucky isn’t prepared for is his undeniable attraction to the handsome, rebellious Digory Tycho. While Lucky and Digory train together, their relationship grows. But daring to care for another Recruit in a world where love is used as the ultimate weapon is extremely dangerous. As Lucky soon learns, the consequences can be deadly…

Wie gesagt, was ich bis dato gelesen habe, hat mir ganz gut gefallen.
