1)A.M. Hawke has created an interesting society with her detailed world building and her fully realised MCs and supporting cast made me care enough about them to want to know what happens to them, their hopes and dreams as this series develops.
2) It took me a while to get into the story, but once I was, I was hooked.  Interesting worldbuilding which is very political. The characters are complex, as is the plot, and I liked the fact it wasn't stereotypical in any way. I also liked the way it didn't shy away from the realities of war, and the battlefield. The ending gives the impression that this is just the beginning.

Amazon: Salvation (Dawn of War #1) A.M. Hawke

Salvation follows gladiator-pit-ruler Malek and sky-ruler Soran. Their two states face destruction unless the men can form a bond they both can trust.

Sexy and violent, with great battles in a beautiful cloud city, Hawke’s work has been described as dark, bloody, and thought-provoking. Salvation should appeal to readers of gay fiction and stories involving men loving men.

Famed gladiator Malek the Destroyer has spent years secretly plotting a revolution against the oppressive Senate that rules his planet. Popular victors who have retired, left the city of Dis, or even apparently died in the arena have secretly trained as Malek’s revolutionary army.

But Malek’s revolution won’t stand a chance if only one city fights it. He reaches out to Soran, leader of the one autonomous city left on the planet, Aerix. Soran leads a caste of Skyknights, starfighter pilots famed for elaborate body modifications that make them nimble fighters and grueling training as soldiers and fighter pilots. Malek invites Soran to Dis to secure an alliance—and to tempt him with promises of power.
