When I saw Orbit was publishing this book I was very excited. This is a sci-fi debut inspired by the lives of Cleopatra, Julius Ceaser and Marc Antony. Set in a world very different to our own with some fascinating worldbuilding, this book is heavily political and it’s one that I hope many people will love.
I’m oh so interested in this book. I really can’t wait to delve into it when I’m up for something as intelligently written as this one. From what I’ve seen this book cleverly uses the history it’s inspired by and I really need that in my life. It reminded me a bit of a book like The Unbroken, so if you liked that one, you’ll like this one. But I’m pretty sure that I’ll like worldbuilding better in this one.
Princess Altagracia has lost everything to her sister. The only way to get her throne and pearl of prophecy back is to make a deal with the interstellar empire of Ceiao. Gracia has to win the trust of Commander Matheus and his prickly right-hand officer, Anita. She winds up falling into bed with Matheus, but dealing with the most dangerous man in the universe is a risk, especially when she may have to choose between him and the wishes of the machine god that whispers in her ear.
Does that not sound so good? Reading the summary again just makes me hyped all over again and I’ll be getting to this at some point in the near future. The book is out soon so make sure you preorder a copy soon.
