This thrilling and inventive space opera takes us to a fascinating and terrifying future where newborn life is won in battle and death. Genetic engineering has removed the male influence and Femes, a sapien race similar to legendary Amazon Warriors, fight each other for supremacy across the galaxy.
Despite being born with the genes of nobility, Kaylenn decides to prove herself in battle. Nothing is more sacred to a Kralite. When her government declares war, she is eager to prove herself again. All opponents fall before her, but when she has no choice but to place her faith in Saaryth--a lowly Kaltaarist squadron commander--or face glorious death herself, she chooses to live.
Born to the tribe, Saaryth embodies the unity and self-sacrifice that is the birthright of all Kaltaarists. After years of being marginalized by their Kralite-led government, Saaryth shows Kaylenn the potential of the many working together in perfect harmony to accomplish a single goal. But Kaylenn's fiery passion awakens within Saaryth desires forbidden to Kaltaarists: she doesn’t want to share.
Their union provokes the ire of the governments and corporations controlling the galaxy, but is the only hope to save Kaylenn's homeworld. The Nexus is always watching… and its judgment is neigh.

    1. hmmm, you'll have to let me know if you read it!

  3. If this weren't sci-fi but more paranormal, I'd totally read this because "Moderately Explicit Violence and Death, including domestic violence; Brief explicit same-gender sexual situations; Profanity; Violence against and death of animals".

    1. I tend to like both sci-fi and paranormal, Thanks for the comment Braine!

  4. Interest premise and the cover is freak-tastic!
