Review by Tiger Lily

A long time from now, in a galaxy just a bit farther away than you think, a beautiful, shape-shifting thief has just broken into the crystalline castle that is the seat of the galactic Empire and stolen their most prized possession, a legendary gem with mystical properties. Now all Cillian has to do is find the infamous Gastardian Bandit and convince him to aid in his escape. But first he’ll have to deal with a sexy garbage man with a secret; the garbage man’s diminuitive cat-man sidekick; cross-dressing, laser rifles and a daring chase through the wastes on the outskirts of the city. Sounds easy, right?

He was the Gastardian Bandit until he went into retirement. But how do you give up a big payday when you could also be looking down the barrel of the best relationship of your life? Then you’d better read Heart of Truth to find out more.

Eon de Beaumont writes an intriguing tale of lies, deception, and lust. You can’t help but find yourself lost in the pages of the novella. The characters keep your attention and draw you into the story. You want to see how they resolve the problems and how they manage to fall for each other.

I liked the theme of hero worship translating into lust and love. Readers can relate to Cillian’s adulation of Thaniel. You look up to those who do great things, even if the things aren’t so great. I liked how the adulation turned into genuine affection.

Thaniel made a great hero because as much as he was attracted to Cillian, he knows there is a job to do and a reputation to restore.

Although I felt the love scenes lacked passion early on, as the story progressed, I could feel the love grow between Cillian and Thaniel. I loved the resolution and how it was rather unexpected. What a great way to end the story and keep the reader on his or her toes.

If you want a short read that’s packed with action and building passion, then you need to read Heart of Truth. I give this novella 4 cherries.
