In this court-intrigue-meets-military-SF mythical mash-up, medical officer Helen Andros has her world turned upside-down when the identity of her father, a Toltec (the ruling race in her nation), is revealed. Readers expecting their romance novels to have a HEA will be sorely disappointed in this series starter; those drawn to detailed explorations of court politics may be dismayed by the violence present against women. This tale is likely of more interest to Game of Thrones fans than for traditional romance readers.
