Amira traveled across the universe to avoid an arranged marriage only to find herself forced into another upon her return hours before her father’s death. As his only heir she should have ruled Rommader uncontested but discovers he's signed an unbreakable marriage contract and finds herself again a bride. While she might be forced to work with Marcus, she refuses to be his wife in any way other than name.
As they deal with assassination attempts, visiting dignitaries from other planets leveraging for political gain, and the discovery of unlimited teleportation, her feelings for her husband soften. Marcus proves himself a competent king and kind man, and her admiration for her husband grows stronger, but she refuses to allow herself to fall in love.
An unknown foe tries to steal the formula for unlimited travel, giving them the potential power to conquer the universe. Amira and Marcus must work together to stop the thief, but when King Marcus is abducted, Amira may be forced to choose between her husband and her crown.
I'm a huge SciFi fan. Have been since my youth. I'm excited to see SciFi making a come back after Fantasy took the front stage for so long. This is the second book in a trilogy. We only get a few references about the characters we fell in love with in EYE ON ORION--Holly and Jai. They don't make a showing in this book.
However, it was fun to get to see Amira back home in her natural settings and see her expand as a character and a person. There's nothing like fleeing your world to avoid a forced marriage only to find out upon your return that you've been provided with a husband in your absence. Without you even being there. I felt for Amira's frustration for the situation and feeling like all her power to decide her own future had been stolen from her. Poor Marcus, her husband, ends up bearing the brunt of her anger.
Fortunately, he's a good choice for both the king and a love interest for her. I fell in love with Marcus right away. Seeing the two of them learn to know each other as they're forced to work together ... well, I'm smiling as I write this. But, sometimes, we learn the value of what we have too late.
I'm not going to spoil anything. I'll just say I can't wait for the next book!
One thing I appreciated about this book as well as the first was that again she didn't make the various alien races seem overly "alien". We are introduced to a few that are very different from the humans on Earth but it was never a key focus for the story.
Even though I enjoyed the first book more than this one, both have me excited to read book 3. I am hoping to see some big things and feel some major feels!
The ending was abrupt, but as the middle "bridge" book in this trilogy it is forgivable. I can't wait for the last in the series to see how Amira will resolve her problems and what she will do with her adorable (if a bit too perfect) hubby.
This is not in any way like the Host and it captured me. After reading the first few chapters, I couldn't put it down. Great story, great twists, my only blah is "some"of the names. Besides that, this was a book I had to finish.
I am especially thrilled with the fact that there is nothing inappropriate in it and I can let my twelve-year-old daughter read it. She also loved it and can't wait for the next book.
