He’s ready to fight for his people, but will he fight for love?
Since Rallis Yy’s homeland Adesa was invaded by rival nation Jev, he and his family have struggled to adapt. As a half Adesi, half Jevite, Rallis faces scorn from both sides and can only keep his head down and hope for the best. When Lieutenant Amun Taarq—a soldier in the occupying Jevite legion—approaches him, he expects the worst, but all Amun wants is a khas opponent. Rallis reluctantly agrees, and he finds more than he expected in the enemy soldier. Amun is intelligent, kindhearted . . . and handsome.
Even as their hearts soften to one another, conflict and oppression worsen in Adesa. Disaster soon strikes in the form of Rallis’s furious cousin, Naravi, and it’s not long before Rallis finds himself trapped in hostile territory, accused of rebellion, and defending not only himself but his people.
Amun is desperate to save Rallis, but the odds are stacked against them. If the Adesi are going to survive, and Rallis is going to have a future, then someone will have to stand up for them. And that someone will have to be Rallis.
