From USA Today Bestselling Author Aileen Erin comes the second book in the Aunare Chronicles
Broken, beaten-down, and plagued by nightmares, Amihanna di Aetes is surrounded by the Aunare race that makes up the other half of her heritage, but she feels alien amongst them. She?s not sure which is worse: SpaceTech?s overt hatred of Aunare or the Aunare?s covert hatred of halfers. She hears their whispers and sees her death reflected in their eyes. Amihanna doesn?t know who to trust anymore, but she hasn?t survived this long by ignoring the warning signs all around her, especially when her instincts are screaming to either flee or fight.
With Amihanna?s sudden return, questions arise among the Aunare: who should be blamed for a full-scale war with SpaceTech, how much danger will the war bring, and is Amihanna truly fit to be the next high queen?
Honestly, Amihanna wants to forget the politics, her betrothal to Lorne, and the possibility of being queen. Her needs are much more basic. All she wants is a solid night?s sleep where she doesn?t wake up screaming with the phantom pain of her skin burning. All she needs is to live without fear of being torn away from her family. All she dreams is a chance at a future instead of constantly fighting for her right to live.
And somehow everything leads her back to Lorne. He always seems to know when she?s about to break under the pressure. His quiet patience is wearing Amihanna?s walls down, and she?s terrified of what will happen if they fall.
