Publisher's Summary

Built to carry you. 

Jamie Callahan is looking forward to spending the rest of his life with Kyle Brannigan. They’ve overcome impossible odds, and the only thing left to do is walk down the aisle together. Despite the happiness they’ve earned, their enemies haven’t all disappeared. 

Make it to the other side. 

Colonel Liam Wessex is thrilled his best friend is getting married, but it’s just further proof that his own life is breaking apart. With his classified identity revealed to the public, Liam is struggling with the transition into civilian life. Becoming reacquainted with MI6 Agent Oliver Archer forces Liam to reconcile his past actions with a future that just might be the answer to all of his problems. 

It’s not over, it’s just the start. 

Oliver thought he’d done enough to cut Liam out of his life. When their professional lives collide, he’s forced to accept the fact that Liam is no longer the spoiled prince he once knew. When terrorists target London and the unthinkable happens, Oliver and Liam learn that second chances come with a price neither can afford to pay. 

In the Solace is a 99k word steamy gay sci-fi military romance with a HEA and concludes the series. This is a direct sequel to In the Requiem and Fire in the Heart. Listening to the previous books in this series would be helpful in enjoying this one.

Fantastic

A great performance by Greg Boudreaux of Hailey Turner’s book. The story has it all action, sadness, love, and humor. Greg uses his voice land timing to take each moment to the next level. A fitting finale to the series. I am going to miss his inverse and can only hope we are allowed to revisit in the future,,

Fantastic End to a Fantastic Series

I have loved this series from the very first chapter of the first book. I had previously read all the books. Now having listened to the whole series there will be repeat listens in the future. I was happy to learn more about Liam, although he appeared in other books we didn't know much about him. Thank you dear author for that. And a Huge Thank you to the Amazing Narrator

So happy Liam has his story

We meet Oliver in the short story with Alexei and Sean and you immediately know there
is a love/hate relationship between Oliver and Liam. In this book we receive the history and their story. This book is a little different in the sense that the usual gang is not involved and I slightly missed that but really enjoyed hearing Liam/Oliver's story. I also love reading how Liam has changed and he didn't give up on convincing Oliver he had. The racetrack scene is one of my favorites in this book. I do wish there was more to this series and it truly is one of my favorites!

This is the 6th novel in the fabulous Metahuman series by Hailey Turner and it was fantastic, as was the rest of the series! Greg Boudreaux can do no wrong and put his brilliance to work with the audio version of In the Solace! Wonderful!

Truly a fairytale ending


Oh my god! I can’t believe this series is over. I will always remember the guys of this series who are courageous, loving, loyal and romantic in their own ways. I still can’t believe this series has come to an end. This series tied up everything neatly and cleaning giving us readers/listeners a very satisfactory HEA.

Two couples got their HEA in this book, Liam and Oliver .. thank god because I was rooting for Liam all along and we also finally got the long-awaited fairytale ending for Jamie and Kyle. I am so happy for those two. As always, it was action-packed, exciting, thrilling, romantic and scorching hot. Again, I really can’t believe the series has come to an end. Greg Boudreaux did a superb narration AS ALWAYS and I’m sure I’ll definitely relisten this series soon. For now, I’m happy and book-drunk.

The End of a Era

A good ending for a great series, though it felt a little short and fast, but isn't that how all good things end.

The narration was spot on with the voices, as always.

Love the suspense, action and romance!! 

Love the suspense, action and romance!!  Really good narration and i love how he brought the characters to life.  

Liam and Oliver's story took them through a tough challenging road from hurt and anger, regret and forgiveness to friendship and love.  They did work against insurmountable odds to find their HEA.  

Jamie and Kyle were front and center in this story and we got lots of steam and romance from their interactions.  These guys have finally gotten their hard fought HEA and i loved being a part of their journey.  

This story is so well written with characters that will live in your heart and mind.  The pacing was wonderful, I was always engaged and enjoyed the dialogue and the team.     

This is book six of Metahuman Files series and it is an amazing series and this book brings yet another fabulous story to the series.

Loved it

This book is the perfect way to close out the series. While there's a lot of action and heart-stopping moments, it doesn't destroy you like the previous book.
Oliver and Liam are so good together, once they learn how to communicate and how to be together they were so perfect for one another.
This narrator hit them out of the park and I loved listening to this amazing story. I am sad to see this series at the end, because it is so engaging and dynamic, definitely going to be a re-read for me because I am not at all ready to let these characters go.

Such a good series!!

I've developed a weakness for Sci-fi and I've always loved suspense novels and now with this series i get it all and HOT lovers. I really recommend just binging them all back to back since the stories are all so detailed it helps to stay on top of remembering everyone. The storylines are so well done and intricate and the supporting characters are some of my favorites. One of my favorite series for sure! I can't believe its over but I loved the way it ended!

Another fantastic instalment of gay sci-fi series

Okay, I have to call out Ms. Turner. In the past couple books there’s been a moment where it looks like one of the heroes has died. She did it again in this book and I can quote the words she used because I was so devastated. I knew – I knew – he wasn’t dead. Because no self-respecting romance author kills off one of the heroes. But…I still cried at the mere thought he might be dead.

Well done, Ms. Turner. Making me cry.

Okay, on to the book itself. I love this series because metahumans are just so cool. And although the American Alpha team has been disbanded, doesn’t mean we’re not going to see many of our favorites as the British fight the Reborn IRA. You might have thought war would be over two and a half centuries from now, but you’d be wrong. And now they have splice bombs that obliterate people causing them to die in the most horrible way.

The book begins with the wedding of Jamie and Kyle – the main heroes from Alpha Team. There are little cameos from other team members, but the focus is on the two men. Their friend Liam Wessex joins coming over from England. Liam who is a member of the royal family, although quite far down on the line of succession. Still, his grandmother is the Queen of England so he owes deference to her. Last year the world found out he was a metahuman and there’s been a push for him to retire but this is all he’s ever known – he’s a military guy who doesn’t want to settle down to do charity events and tea parties.

When Liam is partnered with MI6 agent Oliver Archer, a man from his past, he’s forced to confront things he’d long since left behind, including a man who’s always seen him as a pampered prince. Oliver has worked hard to get where he is but he’ll never have the class status afforded to someone like Liam. Seems that hasn’t changed much either. So much for egalitarianism.

As the men fight the Reborn IRA, they are also fighting feelings for each other. That push/pull eventually culminates in something special. Something precious. And then it’s all threatened again.

So, another rollercoaster ride from Ms. Turner.

The book is narrated by Greg Boudreaux and he did a great job, including the many accents and tons of characters. He always delivers a solid performance and this one was no different. Can’t wait to see what happens in the next book. Especially with the photons.

Bittersweet ending

I am deeply saddened to know this is the end.
This has been an amazing sci-fi adventure full of action, danger and plenty of steamy romance.
This felt like an epilogue and everyone got their HEA.

Fitting ending to a great series

This was a fitting ending to a great series, although it didn't have quite the drama and punch of the preceding books.

There is still action and bad guys, but this story focuses more on the personal tension and romance of Liam and Oliver. The mission takes more of a back seat and is pretty mild except for what happens to Liam, and that is brief. The final battle was a bit anticlimactic. We don't get any final words or vitriol from Bennett, and the head of the Reborn IRA group is killed off-page. When we finally see Bennett, he is pretty much a mindless zombie. I kind of felt cheated. There were also some plot questions that were left unaddressed...like how all those Reborn IRA people got into Ascot. We also don't get a lot of detail on Oliver and Liam's prior friendship. We just get the ending story. I also felt a bit cheated not to see Rupert get more comeuppance. So, overall, I liked the story, and I really liked Oliver's character, but I just didn't feel like it was on the same level as the preceding books.

The narration by Greg Boudreaux was excellent as always. He really infuses the characters with life and energy.

I received a free copy of this audiobook and am voluntarily leaving this honest review.

Sad to see the end

This entire series is absolutely fantastic and the final installment of In the Solace fits perfectly! The superpowers and the action revolving around them really provide a rich world that these characters fit perfectly into. I loved getting to see Jamie and Kyle’s HEA and also getting to see Liam and Oliver together.
Greg Boudreaux did an outstanding job bringing these couples and their fantastic world to life. I’m so sad to see the end of this series and will be revisiting this world often.

A must have!

Ms Turner created a world full of action, superpowers and MM romance, and this book 6 Is not exception. We finally got the so-much expected and well deserved HEA between Jamie and Kyle with heartwarming, sweet vows included. Of course the book is also about Liam and Oliver and how they needed to overcome insecurities, some angst, danger and themselves to be together. I strongly recommend to read this book as part of the series to fully understand all the references, backstory, twists and turns of the plot. A must have for anyone as fan of the series as me, specially while narrated by Mr Boudreaux and his talented voice acting and charism. I loved his performance so perfect for hearing this book so much times.

Endings and beginnings

A wonderful wedding and hot, hot honeymoon for Jamie and Kyle. Their vows were just lovely. Now, finally Liam gets the chance to make up for being so cruel to Oliver all those years ago. This part is a friends/lovers to enemies to lovers tale that was worth the wait. There is also as one would expect plenty of action with twists and turns galore. You won't thank us for giving any spoilers so just know that if you have invested your time into this series, you won't be disappointed in this entry. There is also an interesting take on warriors coping with their impending, unwilling retirement from the fight which in these days of the Prince Harry chronicles made me appreciate just how hard it must have been for him to leave the battlefield years ago when he was forced to and now what it must feel like as he leaves his royal duties behind to give up his military duties as well. I would listen to Greg Boudreaux read literally anything. He is superb here as always. The voices are all so distinct you forget it isn't one person performing them all. The emotions are all right there so you get all the feels, but the action is also expertly handled and you get the feel for how strong these guys are in their military roles.

A thrilling conclusion to the series!

5+ Stars!

Into the Solace is book 6 in the Metahuman Files series and it needs to be read/listened to in order or you'll be missing out on one of the best Sci-Fi series I've ever read. If you haven't read any of the previous books, this review will contain spoilers, so proceed at your own risk. 

The story is told from Jaymie, Kyle, Liam & Oliver's POVs, and even if the main focus is on Liam & Oliver and the mission in London to pursue Murphy, the head of the Reborn IRA, and Former CIA Deputy Director Carter Bennett, we also get to witness Jaymie and Kyle's wedding and part of their honeymoon, which was swoon-worthy and sweet. Of course, knowing Hailey Turner as I (and her fans) know her, it wouldn't stay schmoopy for long, would it? LOL 

I loved Ollie and Liam. I could practically see the sparks every single time their paths crossed and not just when Ollie was still angry at Liam, the chemistry between them was undeniable and I just loved them together. I loved that Liam was so determined to apologize and make amends when he realized how badly he'd hurt Ollie with his actions so many years ago. I would've loved to see more of the transition from them being at odds to fully becoming lovers, but with everything else happening, it was understandable that that part was glossed over or the book would've ended being humongous, not that I would've minded. ;) 

The book is action-packed, fast-paced, sexy, and emotional. It's also angsty and there are a few heartstopping moments here and there, but they were well-balanced with some very entertaining scenes and a thrilling storyline, plus we got to catch up with Team Alpha. I simply can't recommend this book and the whole series enough, you won't regret picking it up.

I had the chance to read some of the books in the series, but I listened to all of them, and let me tell you, Greg Boudreaux's performance is genius. Not only does he give each of the characters—and there are a lot of them, some with accents that Greg totally nails, like with Alexei or in this particular instance, Oliver and Liam and the Royal Guard team—a distinctive voice, but he puts a lot of emotion into the narration, be it the sweet, tender moments, the hotter than hot sex scenes between Jaymie and Kyle or Liam and Oliver, or the action-packed, angsty, fast-paced scenes when the team is pursuing the bad guys, he just consistently delivers and brings Hailey's words into a whole other level of brilliance. So, if given the choice between e-books and audiobooks, let me assure you that I'd pick the audiobooks every single time.
