The love/hate attraction between General Kalen’s captain Jéan Bastien and Kalen’s half-brother Braen has come to a temporary truce, for the sake of the war. Braen has other worries that plague him, besides the thoughts of Jéan Bastien. The whole of Socendor is hanging in the balance, as well as Braen’s kingdom.

Retribution is the third book in the Secrets of Socendor series. This installment has a battle plot detailing the destruction war leaves behind. The characters are believable. Braen is a mixed breed loathed by the other residents of Socendor.  He is suffering from guilt, along with inner turmoil. Jéan is even more confused than Braen.  Jéan cannot understand his attraction to another man since he has never been the least bit interesting in men before. 

Mychael Black has created a fantastic action episode that I thoroughly enjoyed. The main focus of Retribution is stopping the enemy, though there are moments of intimacy between the lovers.
