A month ago, ex-army Major Areg Sebi was thrown into prison.
Now he’s on the scaffold, laying his head on the block.
No public trial for the disgraced war hero. No cyborgs from the League of Realms to whisk him away.
No help. No escape.
A priestess chants a prayer for the major’s soul, even as a judge cries out, “Death to the traitor!”
In the crowd below, laundry maid Etana Tidryn stares into Areg’s eyes.
His lips were hot against hers last night. His hands roamed her body, worshipped her, pleasured her.
She’s falling for him, hard and fast.
She’s still hoping, even if he’s given up…
Can Etana transcend everything she knows—transcend life itself—to save him?
Can she rise to meet her destiny?
Etana Tidryn is both sad and mad about the turn of events. She’s a great advocate for what she believes in. She’s also a very brave woman who wants more out of her life than what the government says. Areg Sebi is a man who has had to endure a lot for what he believes in - something that has gone on throughout history.
This is a story that shows that injustice can occur anywhere. You may think that you have a right to express your thoughts. The powers that be will always have something to say or do about that. But don’t that stifle your voice. As you can see, there’s a lot more going on than what’s between our main characters. But that can happen when an author is creating a world and the people in it.
When an author writes science fiction/paranormal the sky’s the limit. The possibilities of what this author can do is without end. It comes with a lot of pressure because the author has to create something that doesn’t exist. As readers we tend to compare things to what we know and see but here that’s not possible. And yet that’s not to say that I didn’t do that here. It made me think of the social injustice in our own history. And your mind can soar as to what may be possible outside our little planet.
Some readers may give up on an author because her book just has a lot going on. But this one is the beginning of what is coming next. I want to see where this author is going to lead her readers. Plus anything that has me sitting with my feet up with a blanket to keep me warm can’t be all bad. Then to find that the author left me hanging… Good thing the wait isn’t too long to see what comes after the cliffhanger.
