Only one thousand Humans survived The Travel from the shattered Earth. Some Humans say it was their penance for crushing such beauty. Eighteen-year-old Braita merely thought it was pathetic – pathetic that her people had been that blind.

Now, the Humans live in the solar system, Kline, where three planets are habitable. Joyal, the smallest planet, is embraced by the Humans – their family to love as they had never loved Earth. Though a planet covered mainly in water is dangerous real estate to dwell upon.

Their worry turns into devastating reality when Braita’s blessed village is struck by a tsunami. Population numbers must be kept to a minimum. Drastic measures must be taken. Braita’s life is twisted in brutality when she is chosen as one of the three hundred Humans to be removed from Joyal…and sent to the Mian, the aliens to fear, on the planet Triaz.

Thrown head first into a barbaric world she knows nothing of, Braita must adapt to a dark life as a slave of the Mian society. Her existence depends on it…and possibly, the fall of her heart.

I have to say, I was somewhat disappointed by this novella.  Having read Scarlett Dawn’s previous works, I was super excited to get my hands on this.

Braita is forced to transfer to the planet Triaz and become a slave of the Mian after a tsunami hits her home planet.  (At this point I was like ok, eh).  She gets bonded to these two Mian warlords, Leo and Malik, and becomes their “soul”.

This was where you lost me.  Is this going to be some weird love triangle or trio?  Granted this is only a novella and a first in a trilogy, but I’m not sold on where this is going.  Briana is interesting enough as a character and I love that she is a total kick butt, no nonsense gal, but in other ways she’s very immature.  I can’t say this was a horrible piece, because I’m typically not a Sci-Fi fan.  If any Sci-Fi fans want to read it, I’d love to hear your thoughts!
