Kahuel Prince of Yalta is on a mission to explore some new territory. He sets sail with his brother and warriors in an attempt to find new land and to find trading routes for their people. When a typhoon hits things go terribly wrong very quickly. When the ship wrecks and they are stranded on an island that no one knew about things get very dangerous even faster. Now things are happening that they have no idea what is going on and if they don’t find out quickly what is happening they are going to have a lot bigger problems than they currently have.

Talina Princess of the Chosen Ones never knew any life but the one that she lives with her brother and their village. When foreigners land on their island they are not sure what to think. All Talina knows is that her life is about to change drastically and she is not sure if it will be in a good way or a bad one, but she knows that there is an attraction between Kahuel and herself that won’t be denied. When they start to learn more about each other Talina is learning that what she was always taught was the ways of evil is the very way Kahuel lives. Talina is starting to question all the beliefs of her village and people because she feels deep down that Kahuel is not evil even though he does the very things they were always told was wrong.

Now they are going to have to find out what is going on exactly because something is going on at the island and if they are not careful they just might not survive. Talina is also going to have to decide what she truly wants in life because she is very much afraid that she can’t have the way of life she has always known and Kahuel too. If she wants a chance at a future she will have to find out the truth first. Things are not what they have always seemed and everything is about to change forever.

This is a good story with a futuristic world building that is written very well. The reader will be drawn into the story and find it very had to put down until the very end of it. This is part of a series that would probably be better read in order but this one does hold up well on its own. The story and people are very believable and engaging to read about.

I give this one 4 red roses
