Blue Lioness Chronicles of Kassouk Book Four by Vijaya Schartz
Publisher: Desert Breeze Publishing, Inc.
Ariela is a captain of the Black Swords. There is a rebellion brewing in the city of Kassouk. Humans against the Mutants. Ariela knows the humans are going to have to be careful if they want a chance to succeed. One of the ways to succeed is to find other governments that the humans can become allies. One of those governments just might be the little known Star Children of the Eastern Continent. As one of the leaders of the rebellion Ariela needs to find a way for the humans to end their slavery to the Mutants and with a new regime in place she needs to also find out what happened to the old King that died suddenly and in such a way that it looks suspicious. The first place she needs to look is at the new ruler.
Starro is the prince of the Star Children. Starro knows of the humans wish that they become allies and is in Kassouk to see if that is going to be in the best interest of his people. As far as Starro has been taught from birth is that the Star Children are superior to the other races. Though after meeting Ariela he is learning a lot more than he thought possible and is finding that just maybe there is more to life than he has ever known or been taught. Starro is going to have to figure out if he is going to continue to live his life with the new knowledge he has or if he is going to find a different way of living.
A battle is brewing and Ariela and Starro are going to have to figure out just whose side they are on and if they are going to be able to work together to save their people from a tyrant that if he has his way will make everyone on the planet a slave to the Mutants. What neither of them expected is to find a love that just might be the salvation for them both and for their people. A love that just might help them find a way for all of their people to survive the war that is heading their way. And a love that just might change the path they had set for themselves and a love that neither one saw coming.
This is a very good story that would be best read in order with the other books in the series as the stories lead up to each other. The world building is very good and comes to life for the reader as they read each detail that pulls them into another world and lets them live it with the characters. This one is hard to put down once the reader starts as they will want to know what happens next so they will keep turning the pages until the very end.
I give this one 4 red roses
