BlaqJaq and Nickerson had taken part in a blood sport in the city of New New Orleans, where they earned the new palmchips that had allowed them to escape Earth completely. Now married, they journey through space at their leisure until Nickerson encounters his former trainer and learns the name of the superior who prearranged his death.

Through a Midnight's Mist is the final episode of BlaqJaq and Nickerson’s adventures which started with Steel Sleet and the second book Blood in the Water. The wonderful storyline continues with BlaqJaq and Nickerson traveling in space and searching for a place to settle. The facts of how Nickerson became the prey of the government-sanctioned Hunt of Nine blood sport are revealed. The love he has for BlaqJaq, as well as his determination to keep him safe, is the only motivation for seeking revenge in Nickerson’s intellect. Growing up under earth’s surface where violence is out of control, BlaqJaq is amazed by the pristine sights of the colonies. Listening to the descriptions of Nickerson’s former life, BlaqJaq soon discovers that corruption existed out here, as well. BlaqJaq believes Nickerson's betrayal is one of those corruptions that must be rectified by an assissin’s code of justice.

The bond between the two men continues to grow stronger, they have complete trust in each other, their love is reflected in all of their thoughts and actions. The plot is well written and well paced. The characters are engaging. The zero gravity sex scenes are amazing. The talented Eric Del Carlo delivers a intriguing saga illustrating corruption and violence is part of human nature for those seeking power. Through a Midnight's Mist is a outstanding story that I thoroughly enjoyed.
