A case of mistaken identity triggers a reign of terror.
A Star Princess of Soleis, bound by tradition, is forced to fulfill an arrangement made prior to her birth. During the Tauri masque, Oriana meets a handsome stranger, but soon finds out he is not who she thought.
Prince Lucian, unfamiliar with the treaties of the Universe, must restore the reputation of his world and prove his kingdom is not behind the attacks.
No one knew an innocent mistake could lead to the destruction of the solar system. Worlds are conquered, lives torn apart, and destruction reigns, while Oriana, unknowingly, holds the key to salvation.
Now, a Princess who needs saving must save herself, the man she loves, as well as the rest of the Universe, before it is destroyed beyond repair.
Age not specified, but I'd say Teen and up.
*I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an HONEST review*
This. Was. AMAZING. I love science fiction in my books, and this one was threaded through with romance, mystery, suspense, intrigue, EVERYTHING! The characters or Orianna, Lucian, and Eric seemed to come to life the most for me, but really, all of the characters were so very well written.
I loved the form of travel between worlds, it was fun and scary all at once, and it's not something that I've seen a lot of or felt like it just thrown in for convenience.
The relationships felt genuine. The losses, especially one in particular early on, hurt me. I think this was superbly done, and have a feeling this will be a re-read for me. I also think I'll be adding this to my favorites of 2016 list!
