Hell's End is the first book in the Hellscape series. The plot is an intricate futuristic action mystery romance all blended together.  The characters are believable. There is an immediate attraction between Ivan and Tuck. Both men are intelligent experienced warriors. The two men soon develop a passionate relationship, which also provide them with a cover-up. Still, the subject that sparked Ivan’s interest the most is the strange tattoo Tuck has, along with the mystery of the government’s particular interest in Tuck. Conducting a stealth investigation on his own, Ivan discovered information which motivated his resolve to rescue Tuck yet again, only this time from the very government Ivan serves.

Ally Blue has created an enjoyable as well as an impressive saga. The captivating world structure of the space station Hell’s End mirrors some of the aspects of our current social world. The more powerful the family, the higher the level they lived on. The head body of the government occupied the very top levels. A DNA security system prohibited access to upper levels as well as data files. Scientists played a key role in life or death of lower level residents. Some people were considered as purely experimental objects in the advancement of scientific power.
