Author Name: Arabella Federico
Where do you draw the line between fighting for the greater good and vengeance?
Six years ago, seventeen-year-old Karalevine Ruzz watched the alien tyrants abduct her best friend as she narrowly escaped capture herself. Now, older and plagued by the loss of her friend, Kara must do whatever it takes to bring him home–but also bring him justice.
The Arianyte Empire must die.
But as Kara gets closer to the alien prince responsible for forcing her into being his mercenary, she quickly sees a different side of him-one that contradicts everything she knows to be true of Earth’s wicked tyrant. As her feelings for him grow, she finds herself torn between her duty to the rebellion and her growing attraction to the alien prince. Meanwhile, Kara's fellow teammate, Ardelle Dawson, who has always bullied and dismissed her, finally realizes that he may have feelings for her, too. As Kara navigates this complex web of loyalty, duty, and love, she must decide which man she will choose—the dark-haired alien leader, or the fellow teammate who has finally come to his senses. Can she save her best friend and take back Earth, or will she be caught in the crossfire of this dangerous game of rebellion versus occupation?
What readers are saying:
Megan says, “Admittedly, I'm not the biggest fan of science fiction (or aliens). So, I went to this book thinking I wouldn't like it. Boy was I wrong! After making it through the first half, I got through the last half quickly. Each chapter left me wanting to know what happens next. The plot twists along with the fighting scenes were clear and easy to follow. I'm excited to see where this story goes and I cannot wait for the next one!”
Lindsey raves, “The Mark of Chaos and Creation was INCREDIBLE!
Once this book got moving, it moved! Like glued to the page, taking the book to breakfast lunch and dinner and all the toilet breaks in-between type of glued to the page!
First of all! ALIENS WITH MAGIC. Are you kidding me?! It’s everything my nerdy heart could ever want. Secondly, fast moving plot! Which I love.
World building- stellar and not “here is all you need to know in one exposition” you learn more as you read
How’s the main character? I LOVED HER! Her motivations were so clear in every part stringing me along her journey masterfully.
Tropes: aliens , dystopian, magic, enemies to lovers!
THANK YOU FOR GETTING ME OUT OF MY READING SLUMP.”
Hailey says, “Finally, a dystopian book that lives up to the standards The Hunger Games, Divergent, and The Maze Runner set that few books have lived up to since then while adding in amazing fantasy elements!”
Teanne raves, “This book is Fantastic!!! It took me a bit to get in to it.. and catch up with the characters, but once you get past the first couple chapters it’s like forget about life this is where all your attention goes!
The things Kara goes though just unreal and the interactions between her and the other characters (no spoilers) is crazy! Always keeps you on your toes.. when you think you have figured it out.. you haven’t plot twist! Arabella is an amazing writer!
The worst part about this book was the ending… I needed more!! I could not get enough!
Now I’m just patiently waiting for the next book!”
