“As the world evolved, so did humanity’s stupidity. Greed and pollution destroyed the old world. Rain stopped falling, and plants died until all that remained was endless piles of fucking sand. With the last of America’s money and power, they built the three towers. Huge, beautiful structures with amenities that could change humanity’s future. However, they hoarded it behind a huge thick wall and let the rest of the world suffer.”
Thus begins the adventure of Kallen and Lorn, his lover. Kallen was born what is called in the book a wastrel. He was born on the outside of the wall, and through a series of lies and deceptions, worked his way inside the wall. Lorn was exiled from his home within the walls, and Kallen chose to leave with him because “you’re fucking amazing in bed.”
With his knowledge of the dunes and the outside people, Kallen decides that he and Lorn can survive the ten years of exile using their combined strength and guile. Together they make their way toward Kallen’s home camp. But it is a treacherous way, and they have to fight to survive some of the other people attempting to survive the dunes. During the journey, they meet Rohan, a friend
from his home camp. They soon go from a pair to a threesome.
An explosion in the Triple Towers turns their plans back toward there, and they hurry back to help any survivors that may need it. And with their luck, they saved Donton, a friend of Kallen’s, and the new president of the Triple Towers. Things change for them when their exile was revoked if they helped find Rachella, which is the major basis of the story.
There is great humor, wonderful sex scenes, violence, fear and a whole lot of love between the main characters. It is a great futuristic “what if” book, and reads quickly and smoothly.
Mr. Cox has quite the imagination, and I look forward to going back to read his first in this series, especially if it is a fun as Love in the Land of Blood and Bones: Triple Towers. And just so you know, this is a stand-alone. I have not read book one, but had no problem reading this one.

The Book Description:
They are no longer heroes…
The survivors of the Great End were on the brink of death. Three towers were built with the last of the government’s money and power. The wealthiest survivors were given residence within the Triple Towers. A wall of steel was constructed to surround them.
Lorn is now exiled over that wall and his lover Kallen courageously follows. Kallen knows the dangers and violence that awaits them. He managed to survive a terrifying childhood in the wastrel camps. It’s not just the sand that threatens their love—old enemies, former lovers and the traitor from the triple towers returns.
Can they find love in the land of blood and bones?
