2016 Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: Strange Times by Clancy Nacht (138-06-08-2016)

1) I Loved this book. I loved it. The world building was fantastic. Rich in detail and I felt like I was THERE. I cannot gush about this book enough!!! The writing style was different, not what I expected, and it took me a minute to get into the book's rhythm. The plot was engaging and I actually cared about the characters and the events around them. The chemistry was fantastic, with some odd hiccups in development that were easy to overlook. I'm keeping the book, and its going on my Re-read List.

2) An enjoyable story that kept me on the edge of my seat. Loved the world building, and the different character POVs.

Strange Times by Clancy Nacht
Gay Sci-fi / Futuristic
Publisher: Dreamspinner Press; 1 edition (November 18, 2015)
Amazon Kindle: Strange Times

In a world decimated by ecological disaster, a despot named GalWon has taken charge of rebuilding and repopulating society. Using aliens to clean the air and as a threat to keep civilians in line, Deprogrammers coerce homosexuals into being straight—or else.

When Alex’s gay pornography is discovered, his brother, Christian, claims it as his own to save Alex’s life. Christian is sent to a concentration camp, only to be broken out by a resistance group bent on thwarting the new world order, including Turk, a former Deprogrammer once branded gay himself but now fighting for freedom.

However, Alex’s troubles aren’t over. With the government’s eyes still on him, he gets caught in a Deprogrammer honey pot scheme, and it’s up to the rebels, and Turk, to rescue him. In the midst of tragedy, Alex falls in love with his rescuer. But in a world where their love is forbidden, following their hearts means risking their lives when the line between good and evil isn’t what it seems.
