Hello peoples! So today I get to be a part of the awesome book tour for Beyond the Red* by Ava Jae! I am doing a review for this book and no worries, it will be non – spoilery, I promise. But first, before I get into the review, let me share with you some book details:
Beyond The Red* by Ava Jae
Release Date: March 1, 2016
Publisher: Sky Pony Press
Alien queen Kora has a problem as vast as the endless crimson deserts. She’s the first female ruler of her territory in generations, but her people are rioting and call for her violent younger twin brother to take the throne. Despite assassination attempts, a mounting uprising of nomadic human rebels, and pressure to find a mate to help her rule, she’s determined to protect her people from her brother’s would-be tyrannical rule.
Eros is a rebel soldier hated by aliens and human alike for being a half-blood. Yet that doesn’t stop him from defending his people, at least until Kora’s soldiers raze his camp and take him captive. He’s given an ultimatum: be an enslaved bodyguard to Kora, or be executed for his true identity—a secret kept even from him.
When Kora and Eros are framed for the attempted assassination of her betrothed, they flee. Their only chance of survival is to turn themselves into the high court, where revealing Eros’s secret could mean a swift public execution. But when they uncover a violent plot to end the human insurgency, they must find a way to work together to prevent genocide.
Aaaaaaand here’s the review:
Okay, let’s start off by saying the two main characters, Eros and Kora, are amazing! Eros is very interesting with his protectivity and his rebelliousness and then you have Kora is so absolutely a bad***! Like honestly so awesome! The plot was really interesting as….well you saw the plot above, and it is just as awesome as it sounds!!! In terms of writing and the want to read the book, I definitely got sucked in! See usually I’m not really into SciFi books (or movies to be honest) so I took a chance on this one but even with the first sentence you’re like “say what?!” and then you read more to find out next and that keeps happening and then by the end you’re just like “wait, how did I get here?!” Basically reading this book was a really awesome experience and I def suggest you read it regardless of if you’re a SciFi fan or not!
And now for a little bit about the author then an awesome giveaway!
