There’s a price on her head, and it has everything to do with the brand on her arm.

Tertian Space Coalition has blessed every planet in the quadrants with high technology, save one: Drosero. But in spite of their tenuous treaty with the ruling clans, TSC has plans for the backward planet. And they’re not alone.

After a catastrophic explosion, Kersei Dragoumis awakens in a derelict shuttle, alone, injured, and ignorant of the forbidden technology that has swept her into a nightmare. The brand she’s borne since childhood burns mysteriously, but the pain is nothing to that when she learns her family is dead and she is accused of their murders.

Across the quadrants, Marco Dusan responds to the call of a holy order-not to join them, but to seek a bounty. Gifted-or cursed-with abilities that mark him a Kynigos, a tracker sworn to bring interplanetary fugitives to justice, Marco discovers this particular bounty has nothing to do with justice and everything to do with prophecy. One that involves the hunter as much as the hunted.

My Review

This book killed me. I am so emotional and in pain right now it hurts. Why?! I need book 2 now. I need that vision to come true and I need Darius to go die in a stickin hole.

Everything about this book is beautiful and painful. When people told me the ending was painful, I never realized how painful….I literally sobbed. Mrs. Kendig did a fabulous job with her plot twists but there was one that I wish never happened. I understand that it is for the best intention of this book but I honestly wish it never happened. Mrs. Kendig proved to me once again that she is a master at the craft of writing. I loved this book so much even though it was painful.

The characters were amazing. Kersei was a doll and I wish I could take her away from her current predicament so badly. She was so strong and brave yet still had real emotions like everyone else. Marco was a cinnamon roll who I wish with all my heart could be happy. I feel for him so badly right now. Tiggo was a hoot and reminded me to Thorne. He was amazing and I can honestly see why everyone LOVES him!! He is adorable and needs his own story! There are some characters though that I could literally send assassins to go kill for me right now.

The plot was amazing and so unique. I loved it!!! Honestly y’all this was a beautifully written book…just it was super painful at times too. This book was unique but also so amazing. I love it so much. Mrs. Kendig did a fabulous job and now I have some more tears to go cry as I ponder my life desicions that led up to this point.
