Publisher's Summary

Alien queen Kora has a problem as vast as the endless crimson deserts. She's the first female ruler of her territory in generations, but her people are rioting and call for her violent younger twin brother to take the throne. Despite assassination attempts, a mounting uprising of nomadic human rebels, and pressure to find a mate to help her rule, she's determined to protect her people from her brother's would-be tyrannical rule.

Eros is a rebel soldier hated by aliens and human alike for being a half-blood. Yet that doesn't stop him from defending his people, at least until Kora's soldiers raze his camp and take him captive. He's given an ultimatum: be an enslaved bodyguard to Kora, or be executed for his true identity - a secret kept even from him.

When Kora and Eros are framed for the attempted assassination of her betrothed, they flee. Their only chance of survival is to turn themselves in to the high court, where revealing Eros's secret could mean a swift public execution. But when they uncover a violent plot to end the human insurgency, they must find a way to work together to prevent genocide.

Great Start for Ava Jae

I watched her videos on YouTube first, and was curious if she could actually write while dishing out advice. The story is novel, interesting and goes places I did not expect. the narration can be a little whiny at times, or it seems like they both have the same whiny voice, rather than their own thoughts that are varying and different. I like it and devoured it so it was definitely worth the read and I will be checking out the next book here soon.

Surprisingly good story

I wasn't sure what to expect when I purchased this audiobook. Having watched Ava Jays videos on you tube I was curious how well her story was written and what it was about.

Without reading the synopsis or any reviews I picked it up and was drawn in to a well presented and thought out fantasy world and was hooked on every word.

The story contains a great blend of fantasy, romance and conflict. While it was pretty predictable in terms of what was going to happen the journey was truly one of the best stories I have heard this year if not ever.

I am now waiting eagerly for the next book in the series and for an announcement of a movie deal to rival The Hunger Games and Maze Runner.
