Sometimes the enemy within is worse than the enemy without…

Lord Comron Van Laven is the brave but deeply troubled heir to throne. Lady Vaush Bastionli, is the spirited daughter of his mortal enemy, the one woman he should never love. But when a cruel twist of fate forces them to rely on each other for their very survival, old hatreds are supplanted by something far too powerful for them to resist.

But a startling revelation about Vaush’s true origins threatens to destroy Comron’s kingdom. Meanwhile, his own deeply disturbing family history may prove to be his undoing. Possessed by his fiery passion for Vaush, yet compelled to protect his realm, Comron embarks on a thrilling, inter-planetary odyssey that plunges the couple into the midst of epic battles and raging political power struggles.

Those seeking to kill or control Vaush relentlessly hunt the two as they race to Novoxos where Comron can help Vaush fulfill her destiny and save the Empire from a horrible, apocalyptic fate. If only Comron’s internal chaos doesn't destroy them first…


"Sometimes the enemy within is worse than the enemy without..." This quote sums up Lord Comron Van Laven's problem in this cool new futuristic spin on a tale of star crossed lovers. It is a terrible thing when your enemy can get inside your head. Crausin, who is Comron's "father," wants to keep his allegiance and by any means necessary make sure he is not abandoned by his son. In a sick and twisted mind game with horrific consequences if Comron doesn't follow along, he keeps him under his thumb... until Comron and Vaush find themselves in mortal danger. Comron and Vaush should hate each other, but instead, their love blossoms and grows stronger than anything thrown at them. In this story, they battle against all odds, terrorist type attacks, life threatening weather, and some very nasty beasts to boot, to stay alive and stay together. Comron continues to hold true to his oath with Crausin while trying to come up with a way to balance his duty to his kingdom and keep his promises to Vaush. The story is a non-stop ball of energy and action, with romance and eternal love sprinkled in for extra enjoyment. Mix in Spira, who wants to marry Comron and share the bed of his father, and the forces pushing Comron to go through with the deed and the plot has quite a lot going for it. I enjoyed the story very much and would read the next novels in the series to find out what happens after the thrilling journey to Novoxos.
