Series: Tornians #4
Ull Rigel has always believed himself to be a fit and worthy male, until recent events make him realize he might not be. Now he is constantly doubting himself. Now he is being sent to protect Earth by Emperor Wray and has to work directly with the President’s niece to set up a treaty. Trisha Burke doesn’t like Ull at first, but that changes as she gets to know him. Together these two work to make a treaty between Earth, Tornian, and the Kalizian empires.
I have been waiting for this book since 2015 and it did not disappoint. I was a little concerned with how this story would go. Ull has been angry and bitter since being passed over during the joining ceremony. His world has completely changed and he doesn’t know how to cope with the changes. I really enjoyed seeing Trisha put Ull in his place and make him open his eyes. Ull was moody, arrogant, bitter, but also very protective and sweet to Trisha. I quite liked him, which I didn’t think was going to happen.
Trisha was a very strong, independent woman. She has had a very stressful life but she hasn’t let that stop her. I really liked Trisha. She was a great heroine. I loved that she wasn’t afraid to stand up to Ull and tell him when he was being an asshole, which is frequently in the beginning. She is the perfect mate for Ull because she challenges him and makes him be a better person.
Overall, this book was worth the wait and I highly recommend this series. I do suggest that you start with book 1, Grim, because I think it’s the only way to truly understand the overarching story. Also I did notice a few grammatical errors but they didn’t distract me from the story.
