The world has changed due to the majority of the population having been annihilated by war. Aelynara is a half-human breed who has an inbuilt ability as a guard and warrior and it is while she is doing her job that she meets Destin, the Arach, who is there to repopulate his own species. After suffering an injury, she is left with a deep connection to a man who she doesn’t even like and will do anything to escape from him. Even if that means destroying herself.
This is a short, sweet introductory to a new series. The world C. S. Love has created is part sci-fi, part post-apocalyptic, and has an economical use of words; the author has managed to portray a detailed and interesting scene.
Aelynara is an interesting character and her love of literature from the fallen world is an endearing touch, as are the lengths she goes to secure the texts. I’m looking forward to reading more of this series.
