What happens when your decisions affect an entire universe?

Ren Argent wanted to be an archeologist and spend her life exploring the lost cities of Earth. But when a new planet is discovered and her father is appointed King, she has to leave behind everything she knows to rule over a place she’s only heard of in legends.

Not long after her arrival she discovers there are insurgents hiding in the darkened forests and the planet is on the brink of civil war. It won’t be long until the Monarchy steps in to “neutralize” the threat.

Will she be able to stop the hostile takeover? Or will her actions ignite a rebellion across the universe?

***Derek – #NerdGirlDad’s  Review***
Within the first forty pages I had already decided on three stars for this book and nothing in the next two hundred (or thereabouts) changed my mind. If I was not reading this particularly for a review I would have given up. There were, however, many good things about it. The main character Ren is interesting and if the author had used the services of a good editor for a day or so the resulting work would, I’m sure, have kept a reader turning pages to the end as the story is a good one. Hopefully as this is the first in a series things will get better. I was certainly  impressed enough to give Book Two a chance.
