Jason Kilkenny has learned his full heritage and the nature of the bloodline that runs in his veins. One quarter mortal, he is also the child of a Power, the Horned King of the Wild Hunt of the Fae. But his father is dead, murdered in a fae civil war that ended before Jason was born. It ended because of a powerful spell the Horned King cast, trading his life to deny the Masked Lords the weapon they needed to kill the Fae Powers.

I would say that I expect better from this writing duo. The main male character comes off as a rich over-privileged jackass who imposes himself on women. Furthermore, the listener is supposed to believe that the main female character is dreaming about this guy who forces himself on women like she's in lust with him. This is said to say but don't waste your money on this series it is rather creepy and not in a horror type way.

The Kaiser murdered Theodosia's mother, the Fire Queen, when Theo was only six. He took Theo's country and kept her prisoner, crowning her Ash Princess - a pet to toy with and humiliate for 10 long years. That era has ended. The Kaiser thought his prisoner weak and defenseless. He didn't realize that a sharp mind is the deadliest weapon. Theo no longer wears a crown of ashes. She has taken back her rightful title, and a hostage - Prinz Soren. But her people remain enslaved under the Kaiser's rule, and now she is thousands of miles away from them and her throne.

One of the things I’ve noticed regarding the reviews about this book is that many people thought it was going to be another Harry Potter. I think that was an unfair characterization, I believe this book should be allowed to stand on its own merits. In my opinion, the story is engaging, filled with drama and intrigue. The main character is filled with fire always ready to defend her family and friends. So, I hope the people who wrote a review would please set aside their Harry Potter impressions and please give this story another look because it is well worth the buy.

The Raider clans have been defeated, and their planet is under the supervision of the Riss, with Captain Reese the station commander. But while Reese sees the Raider clans as on probation, many in the SAS task force she commands perceive them as prisoners and hope to break the Treaty and get revenge. As Nadya attempts to maintain the fragile peace, the three empires are being invaded. They know the invading force is far more technologically advanced than the SAS. But who are they, where did they come from, and what do they want?

I think this story is so interesting because it gives the listener the whole sci-fi aspect which I believe is told very well. However, I think the greater part of this story is the lesson it teaches about how we as human beings treat someone different. Well worth the buy.

It’s not easy being 16, especially when everyone expects great things from Tilly. It’s even harder when her mother and father are Federation luminaries, not to mention pressing her to attend one of the best schools the Federation has to offer. Tilly wants to achieve great things - even though she hasn’t quite worked out how to do that or what it is she wants to do. But this year, everything will change for Tilly, as she is about to embark upon the adventure of a lifetime - an adventure that will take her ever closer to the stars....

I think this story and character proves that if you are persistent in your goals nothing will get in your way. I believe its a good continuation of the previous book that will make the listener look forward to the next book in series. I think if there was one issue I have with this story it is the possible relationship she has with another female character. It is because the main character might be doing this because she was violently raped, the writer makes a point that the main character can barely stand the touch of a man. If this part of the story is to be genuine regarding her possible love for this female character, then I hope the writer will resolve the main character's issues with men.
