A condemned warrior. A young woman fighting to save him. A passion that defies the stars. 

Four weeks ago, ex-army Major Areg Sebi was thrown into prison. 

Now he’s on the scaffold, laying his head on the block.   

No public trial for the disgraced war hero. No cyborgs from the League of Realms to whisk him away. 

No help. No escape. 

A priestess chants a prayer for the major’s soul, even as a judge cries out, “Death to the traitor!” 

In the crowd below, laundry maid Etana Tidryn stares into Areg’s eyes. 

His lips were hot against hers last night. His hands roamed her body, worshipped her, pleasured her. 

She’s falling for him, hard and fast.  

She’s still hoping, even if he’s given up… 

Can Etana transcend everything she knows—transcend life itself—to save him? 

Can she rise to meet her destiny?

When I read the synopsis for The Traitor's Bride, I jumped at the chance to read it, it seemed like the type of book that I would enjoy, and I did...until the cliffhanger hit me at the end! ugh, I hate those!! but overall the story was enjoyable, though I did get confused by some of the alien "language", so maybe a little glossary could be added for those like myself, who cannot keep much lol!

The story is a remarkable work of fiction, and I didn't think I would get so heavily invested in the story, but when Etana spoke up at the sham of a public trial, I knew this was the book for me. The affection between Areg and Etana grows so quickly, almost as quickly as my love for this book.! and while it does have the dreaded cliffhanger, surprisingly it will not stop me from waiting impatiently for the next installment.

Now on to the nitty-gritty of this book, I found the storyline fast paced and gripping, the characters developed, and the villains truly disgusting, which is why I give The Traitor's Bride 4 stars
