Trekking through the utter ruins of a world squeezed dry, Elbi Vostok dreams of returning to her once cherished Palace of Lazar. Seeking refuge in a temporary commune, Elbi and the rest of the harem girls are forced to adapt to a new way of life. After having been schooled in the art of submission in their luxurious palace, the women now have no choice but to learn a new art if they want to survive in the dry, dusty desert surrounded by enemies - the art of war.
Feeling weak, Elbi wants to be cared for. Feeling scared, she wants to be protected. Feeling alone, she wants to be loved. And she wants it all from one man... Malachi Lazar. But is he willing and able to provide that care, protection and love? As a war breaks out between Lazar and Jaden, can Elbi hold on to her ability to surrender when she's forced to be stronger than ever before? With the post-apocalyptic struggle all around, is it possible to be victorious without having victims?
This is the tale of a woman who, at her weakest moment, must find it within herself to be at her strongest - not only in battle, but also when confronted with the courage it takes to submit to a man when the world is falling apart around her.
I loved this series! I'd love to see Alta Hensley do more in it. There is more action in this book as they fight to take back the Palace of Lazar but there are still some very erotic sex scenes! Hollie Jackson nailed it on the narration!
