Just a year ago, I thought I was an ordinary human, and I gave up everything on Earth to save the people I loved. I have become the Lenai of Emréiana, making me the heir to the Emréian throne. It also makes me in charge of defeating the Bremoir, a race that has been consuming other worlds. If I can’t stop them, the universe is doomed.
Then there is Aaronmon, my betrothed. We have only known each other for a year, but our bond is strong. It’s that bond that makes it hard to know my true feelings. While I think I am ready for the ceremony, I wonder if I really love him like I loved Kyle, my ex- boyfriend who was murdered.
But none of my feelings matter. In order to rule Emréiana, I must go through with the bonding ceremony. If I don’t, then I risk losing the right as heir and I’ll have no power in the war against the Bremoir. Nobody wants them defeated more than me.
Another enjoyable read.The author has done another fine job with this tale giving us a couple of big shockers that we never saw coming.
This tale Carsona has left Earth and arrived to the place she was born.We are with her on her journey as she learns to cope with her new surroundings and so forth. Carsona's life is ever changing she has learned that she is the bonded mate of Aaronmon. She is learning to cope with the death of her most beloved Aunt. Carsona seems to be adjusting she is trying to learn everything she can about the people the language and important government issues that will aid her running her country.There are those who are not in favor of her and her ability to rule.But, she is doing everything she can to win them over.She has gotten to know Aaronmon and she has grown to love and care for him.Her head and hear heart don't always agree on the subject as there is something special between the couple. Carsona is not sure that all her feelings are due to the fated bond they share or her own true feelings.Even though she has fallen for him she cannot let go of the love she had once with Kyle.Its been a year and she is still learning and exploring a learning something new every day.
The author again does a beautiful job describing her new home the landscapes plants and wildlife making them seem most intriguing that you would want to visit there to.
One of the most fascinating things is Carsona is still able to communicated with her Earth families if the need arises.This time around we experience more of the sci fi space feel. Carsona has adjusted to her new life made a few friends gotten herself a pet.She constantly aches for the life that could have been with Kyle and living on earth as a human.
We are thrown some whopping shockers in this tale that we never saw coming mixing things up bit yet again.More danger as the plot thickens to make sure that Carsona never ascends to the throne.This time the Bremoir have upped the ante and are using chemical warfare putting Carsona is the position to fight to stay alive.
This was an enchanting tale of a new beginning at a new life and love.We see a sweet courtship developed between Aaronmon and Carsona.We see the strain of that courtship of the bonded couple .The bond enhances all the feelings.Just being near one another you feel either might be about to go up in flames.
I can see how much Carsona has grown just within a years time.This time around she did impress me instead of vexing me.We are introduced to some new and old characters once again.I can't say I have just one favorite character.I never made a connection with any of them.That being said its not that I did not find them to be a bit interesting and like-able characters.I just surprises me that this is the second time I have read something from this author and have not fallen in love with any character of theirs.Its put me off kilter and not sure why?Its never happened to me before.But, it still does not deter me for wishing Carsona and Aaronmon a happy ever after or of looking forward to the couples latest adventures.
I am giving this story 5 stars because of the chosen hero of the story that saved Carsona's life.And also because the author left you reeling at the very end of the story .Questions ? What you thought was to come to pass may be so out of reach now with Aaronmon's latest rival for Carsona's affections.The author leaves you trying to decide whether to trust or love or hate the newest hero's arrival.Learning about this mystery man makes you question everything he has done as we learned he kept some whopping secrets.Sins of the father are not sins of the son so I will base my opinion of him on his good deeds to come.
Recommend read to young adult readers.Looking for a light paced intriguing read this is a tale for you.
