You WILL want to get the Daugther of Destiny:Reaper short story and read it first, as it serves as a prologue for this one much more than a prequel or stand-alone story. Without knowing what happened in Reaper, there are many spots here where you have to wonder why they acted this way or what they are talking about. With having read Reaper, those questions don't even come up.
Basic setup is that a super-virus hits in Africa and spreads worldwide before anyone will believe the one person who predicted it. By the time they start to pick up the pieces and realize she was right, the virus has caused 95% mortality among those infected. They find her emails and decide since she knew what was going on, they will put her in charge of R&D to fight it. That's the plot of Reaper -- and it sounds a great deal like what is happening with Ebola now, only we are not as far down the road and many people are sounding the warnings.
For this novel, you will find a mix of magic, legend, romance and space-faring aliens, including space battles. If any of those appeal to you, get the book.
