Shorty's Review 4 Hearts:

I was blown away by this story. I can not imagine living in the seventeen hundreds only to be transported seven hundred years in the future to find all is changed. I don't know how Aidan never aged once he was transported.

Talos takes a hunt to acquire and transport pirate Aidan Maymon. The buyer was a oily little creep named Barlow whose intentions were not on the up and up. Along the way Talos' mating instincts take him for a drive. One he fights.

Aidan for his part is not happy and tries to escape every chance he gets but ultimately has to rely on Talos in this strange new world he finds himself in.

Great read.

Pixie's Review 5 Hearts:

Details of the Hunt was one of the first stories that I ever read in the MM genre and it blew me away with it's fun light hearted tone while keeping a slightly serious aspect on the morality of the Hunts. I've read it many times over the years and it's always fresh and always kept me entertained.

Talos is just doing his duty when he goes to pick up a blackhearted pirate from Earth 1769. He doesn't expect the pirate to be completely different than what he expects and he certainly didn't expect to be drawn to the man. The Hunt details must be fulfilled though and Talos must weigh his duty against the life of his mate.

Aidan is on the verge of death when he is snatched from the jaws of a shark by his very own Ceme sea god, but discovering everything that he'd ever known is long gone and he's expected to just accept that he's been brought from the past to be handed over to a sleazy git as punishment for his crimes several centuries beforeā€¦ Ha he wasn't a pirate for nothing.

This is an amazing story that drags you into the future with fascinating aliens and a wonderful Johnny Depp type pirate. The story has you laughing and it also has you contemplating the morality of Aidan's situation. There's action and danger, love and loss, cheekiness and seriousness, and some amazing sex between two males who discover love when neither of them expected it.

I'd recommend this to those who adore science fiction, pirates and exotic aliens, to those who love a bit of action and danger, to those who adore fantastic characters and a storyline that has many twists and turns.

Imagine an eighteenth century pirate set loose in a distant futuristic society. The question isn't will the pirate survive, but will the futuristic society survive. This is the basic premise of Ms. Baumbach's phenomenal story Details of the Hunt.


Ms. Baumbach has created a unique story that spans centuries and brings to life the bygone days of the pirate into a new light. Maymon maybe a pirate, but there are depths to his character that Talos can't wait to explore. The funniest line in the story is by Talos' brother who responds to Talos' problems with Maymon with "Ah, domestic Chores"! The dry whit behind the comment was hysterical. Add to this Barlow's questionable reason for wanting Maymon, why Talos' ship was attacked, and the underlying attraction between Talos and Maymon and you get an incredible book that ensnared me from the very start. Let alone the incredibly funny antics that Maymon manages to get himself into and Talos's reactions that keep the reader in stitches throughout the entire book. I for one will be waiting for the sequel book Genetic Snare with baited breath!
