I received this book as an ARC for an honest review.
In this book we meet Zoey Swann and Lord Daegon of the Phon Clan. Daegon has been tasked by his Chieftan to be the representative to the Galatic Union who are coming to get the Corgan to join them. Corgan's don't do change easily and Nadar (their new Chieftan) is making a lot of them, which in turn is making a lot of problems for Daegon. When there is to much unrest within a clan they fight for leadership and with everything that is going on right now there are some Corgan that would rather fight than make deals and alliances. So when Daegon meets Zoey for the first time he is confussed about his feelings. Instead of wanting to fight her he wants to possess and protect her with everything in him. Can he come to some type of understanding with her before it is to late or will everything that is happening round them make that impossible?
Zoey was sent by the Galatic Union as the Chief Deputy of Intergalactic Relations to ensure a smooth transition of the Corgan people in to the Union. What Zoey doesn't know is that some of the Corgan's are still fighting this happening. Daegon is the person she is tasked with meeting with to ensure that Corgan people even become members of the Union. Zoey quickly learns that being there to negotiate doesn't always mean a safe comfortable environment where both parties talk. Sometimes it is showing what your worth to that the people you are trying to get to join you respect you when the discussions are done. The other thing Zoey learns is you can never know when the person you are meant to be with will be dropped in your life. Though Daegon and Zoey have a lot to contend with before even considering being with one another, Zoey wonders will she even survive long enough to find out?
This is an action packed hold on to your seat it will be a bumpy ride kind of book that will have you hooked from the first word to the very end. This book has many ups and downs I want to tell you all about but don't want to ruin any of the surprises that come in different points in this book. I will say this is an amazing story that will have you rooting for the characters one moment and wanting to slap them in the next. I would highly recommend this story to anyone and everyone.
