The kingdom of Abennelp has enjoyed an age of peace. Tiva Boon, a loyal and ambitious Royal Guardian is determined to carry on tradition and become an elite protector to the throne. It is all she has ever wanted. Possessing abilities and strength beyond her age, Tiva dedicates her youth and risks her life in the service of her king to prove she is worthy. With her goal achieved and her destiny in motion, a mysterious off-world threat emerges and shatters everything Tiva holds dear.

Exiled from her home and running for her life, Tiva seeks asylum with the Union, a universal security force, and attempts to put the past behind her. Finding herself alone among various space faring races, Tiva integrates herself into the strange society using her skills as a protector and befriends several aliens she meets along the way, ones who will change her life forever.

When a message from those loyal to her king reaches her months after she feels safe in her new life, Tiva’s destiny and the fate of her people collide.

***Derek – #NerdGirlDad’s Review***
he synopsis only scratches the surface of this work, obviously the first in an exciting series. We follow Tiva from her birth (do carefully read the prologue), through her early teenage years to achieving her goal of becoming a member of the elite Royal Guard.

As I have previously found with this author the tale is well constructed and the characters developed well. My only complaint is surprizing when one considers just how many books the she has written. They will not affect your enjoyment of the book, and anyone reading quickly will probably not notice, but it is riddled with minor errors that should have been picked up and corrected before publication. As most of them are simple ‘typos’, e.g. ‘warm’ where you will read it as the correct ‘warn’ they will not affect your enjoyment.
In spite of that, this is a five star work and you will enjoy it. The first part will seem more like a medieval historical adventure tale than sci-fi, but be patient: you will get your fill of spaceships, modern weapons and battles later.
Like me you will look forward to the next instalment of Tiva’s adventures.
