Publisher's Summary

The adrenaline-fueled, Star Wars-style sequel to Behind the Throne, a new space adventure series from author K.B. Wagers.

Former gunrunner-turned-Empress Hail Bristol was dragged back to her home planet to fill her rightful position in the palace. With her sisters and parents murdered, the Indranan Empire is on the brink of war. Hail must quickly make alliances with nearby worlds if she has any hope of surviving her rule.

When peace talks turn violent and Hail realizes she's been betrayed, she must rely on her old gunrunning ways to get out of trouble. With help from an old boss and some surprising new allies, she must risk everything to save her world.

Great Sequel

There's more action in this sequel than in the first book. Especially in the last half when they leave the planet and we meet Hail's friends from her gun running days. But it still has all the heart and political intrigue of Behind the Throne. Empress Hail and her bodyguards are getting closer. The dialog back and forth between them adds little touches of humor.

The narration by Angele Masters just keeps getting better too. She handles all the action as well as the dialog smoothly and brings the story to life.
