"Off Balance is a rollercoaster ride with love, lots of emotion, character development and daring action.... Anyone who enjoys a book written by Maria V. Snyder or Kristin Cashore will devour her books. I don't read sci-fi often…but Off Balance took my breath away." - Book Dragon
"In this bleak world, one spark of hope soon turns into an inferno. And just like a fireball, once this story is ignited, it just doesn’t stop.” — Maria V. Snyder, New York Times bestselling author of Navigating the Stars.
From USA Today Bestselling Author Aileen Erin comes the second book in the Aunare Chronicles
Broken, beaten-down, and plagued by nightmares, Amihanna di Aetes is surrounded by the Aunare race that makes up the other half of her heritage, but she feels alien amongst them. She’s not sure which is worse: SpaceTech’s overt hatred of Aunare or the Aunare’s covert hatred of halfers. She hears their whispers and sees her death reflected in their eyes. Amihanna doesn’t know who to trust anymore, but she hasn’t survived this long by ignoring the warning signs all around her, especially when her instincts are screaming to either flee or fight.
With Amihanna’s sudden return, questions arise among the Aunare: who should be blamed for a full-scale war with SpaceTech, how much danger will the war bring, and is Amihanna truly fit to be the next high queen?
Honestly, Amihanna wants to forget the politics, her betrothal to Lorne, and the possibility of being queen. Her needs are much more basic. All she wants is a solid night’s sleep where she doesn’t wake up screaming with the phantom pain of her skin burning. All she needs is to live without fear of being torn away from her family. All she dreams is a chance at a future instead of constantly fighting for her right to live.
And somehow everything leads her back to Lorne. He always seems to know when she’s about to break under the pressure. His quiet patience is wearing Amihanna’s walls down, and she’s terrified of what will happen if they fall.
"She always catches me off guard with how powerful her books end!...If you’re looking for romance, action, and sci-fi, check out this series!" - Reviews by Lenniland
"I'm dying for the next one." - Amy, FWISD

Can’t stop thinking about
I am in love with this series. I fell in love with the main character she is so strong and incredible that I find myself wanting to be her. It’s been months since I’ve read these books and I’m still thinking about the story from time to time! I can not wait for the next book I wish it would come sooner!!
The authors flow is so amazing and she makes you feel the characters
I received this ARC for an honest review. OMG...ok let me catch my breath for a minute. I just turned the last page one this book, and the only thing I can think is “I have to wait a whole year for book 3!” Aileen Erin’s character and world building is phenomenal. You get pulled into the story and you don’t want to stop. When I finished this book, I just looked at my husband and said wow.
This book is not a stand alone. This is book 2 in the series. It is about Lorne and Amihanna. They are shalshada or mirror souls. Amihanna is still recovering from her time on Abaddon. She is suffering from severe PTSD. Lorne is trying to help. Lorne is trying to convince Amihanna that he truly loves her and wants to marry her, but she is afraid to be a queen.
I’m not going to write much more about the plot, but to say there is so many twist and turns. You just want to keep reading to find out what happens next.
