When Princess Cassia Rose fled her homeworld of Eturia to escape an arranged marriage, she had no idea her sudden departure would spark a war. Now after two years hiding as a ship hand, she is finally returning to her beloved home, but not in the way she imagined. Shackled by bounty hunters, she is violently dragged back to account for her crimes. Her only solace is that the Banshee crew managed to evade capture, including Kane Arric, her best friend...with occasional benefits.

Meanwhile, Kane and the rest of the crew of the Banshee plan a desperate rescue mission. But when they arrive on Eturia, Cassia isn't exactly in need of heroics—she's claimed her birthright as Eturia's queen but has inherited a war-torn planet simmering with rebellion. Cassia must make alliances, and Kane, the bastard son of a merchant, isn't a choice that will earn her any friends. Kane knows he will never find someone to replace Cassia—and is certain she returns his feelings—but how can he throw away his own promising future waiting on a queen?

When the outer realm is threatened by the dangerous Zhang mafia, Cassia, Kane and the rest of the Banshee crew uncover a horrifying conspiracy that endangers the entire universe. In the face of unspeakable evil, Cassia must confront her own family's complicated legacy on Eturia and decide once and for all who her real family is.

my rate

Why did I not rate this wonderful book five stars? Because it made me suffer! I hated the whole journey. Do not let my rate influence you in not reading it because you have to, but be prepared to suffer, break your heart and then repair it in just one chapter (the last one).

Since the last book, we have known of Cassy and Kane. They are always joined at the hip, but their journeys ran deeper than that. Kane has been in love with her since before he could tie his shoes and so is Cassy. The difference is that Kane was easy to show his love, but Cassy had to whiplash him because there was no option. She is royal, he is not. No matter how much she wants him, she can't have him.

So, yeah, half of the book is them fighting about stupid things and then a silent treatment. They do love each other, by Cassy didn't see the opportunity of them together until much later and at that point, was a little too late because Kane was far gone. WHY DID THE AUTHOR MADE ME SUFFER? Simple, the story of them was going in circles. Two chapters before the end the resolution was not in sight, and that made me nuts.

Surely you will not let me sway you away from reading this book, right? YOU HAVE TO! Suffer like me! BWHAHAHAHA But seriously, read the series. Is a good one.
