Tomoiya is a very relatable character. Her doubts, a terrifying choice she was forced to make in order to save her own life and her sufferings right after are easy to empathize with. Many valuable lessons can be learned from this story when you read between the lines. Five stars.
It is a finely woven tale of human nature where the non-humans are FAR more humane than the humans! Tomoiya is a princess with solid values, a very close friend and a good life. The story takes place in a future where intergalactic travel and terra formed planets are common place. Even small solar systems are chosen for distinct purposes!
But secrets about people's race lead to unexpected problems. Group mentality and the use of media for spreading propaganda are well orchestrated, both in the forefront and behind the scenes. But a charismatic person fills normally intelligent people with falsely created fear. The portrayal of the way people lose individual critical thinking ability when mass hysteria takes hold, is a particularly well written.
C.A. King's foreshadowing makes the plot a bit obvious (to me), but her inclusion of Tomoiya's "Royalty Rules" and her inner thoughts in the altered font style, both work wonderfully as story elements without asking a reader to read an elongated backstory to understand the main characters. There is a key backstory in one latter chapters, but the remaining backstory is strewn neatly throughout the book. They all feel quite fluid in the story, and quite essential.
I look forward to the second book in the series,
"Escape to Darkness", which is already available. The final installment of the trilogy hasn't been named, but is slated for late 2018 or early 2019.
I am a new fan of C.A.King's work as an author. I am reading three different story lines. All are intriguing and entertaining. And C.A.King's an independent author, so her works are inexpensive in Amazon Kindle format.
I never met Mrs. King, but we have chatted. She is a nice person. She enjoys meeting her fans at events, and will even correspond when she has time. A creative fiction writer's work is never really done!
Bottom line, it's a tear jerker. A vampire story that questions our understanding about other races. People are individuals. Leaders use generalized fear and tricks to continue hate and oppression. And this book clearly ends with the stage set for the second book. I can't wait to read it and see where the story leads!
