This book is a whole new world just waiting to be explored. I love action/adventure books which made me so happy that I got to read this book.
A sweeping sci-fi fantasy adventure that follows two fugitives -- a princess-in-exile and her accused killer -- across the galaxy as they fight to reclaim her family dynasty and save the universe from a deadly threat.
Crown Princess Rhiannon, known as Rhee, has deadly accuracy with a blade and a thirst for vengeance. After her family perished in a suspicious spacecraft accident when she was just a child, Rhee grew up in exile while a corrupt government ruled in her stead. Now, Rhee has finally come of age to claim her title as Empress... and to avenge her family.
But on the eve of her coronation, Rhee is brutally attacked by a government assassin and only narrowly escapes with her life. Without knowing who she can trust, Rhee goes into hiding, relying only on her sharp instincts and her trusty blade to survive.
Across the galaxy, pilot Alyosha has risen above his war refugee origins to find fame as the popular star of a reality holo-vision show. But when Aly is framed for the attack on Rhee, he goes from celebrity to fugitive in an instant. On the run from the formidable UniForce army, Aly knows that his only hope is to find the princess and clear his name.
Thrown together by an act of violence, Rhee and Aly eventually discover the attack is just one part of a larger plan with devastating, far-reaching consequences for the entire galaxy.
Meet the lovely Rhoda Belleza
Rhoda Belleza was raised in Los Angeles, where she grew up writing X-Filesfanfiction and stuffing her face with avocados. She's a children's editor at a publishing house and writes from a sunny Brooklyn apartment stuffed with far too many bikes and far too many shoes. When she's not writing, Rhoda obsesses over nail art tutorials, watches kung fu movies, and sews together crooked things that pass for clothes. Empress of a Thousand Skies is her debut novel.
My favorite character is Rhee. I really enjoy her spirit and drive. She cares about the people in her life, even when they betray her. Plus, she a badass!
I like that Rhoda put an image of the solar system in the front so that you can see where the characters are. She also included a major characters, planets and other information to help you while reading the story which I appreciate. She has created this entire new solar system and has brilliantly made it all come to life. If you are a fan of sci-fi, action packed adventures, then stop what you are doing and go check out this book!
