Amid the Stars and Darkness ( The Xenith Trilogy #1)

Reviewed by:

Well-known author Tempest C. Avery, using the pen-name Chani Lynn Feener, writes a fast-paced debut science fiction thriller and intergalactic adventure featuring aliens who live on Earth and co-exist with humans. Earthling Delaney, a feisty, clever teen, is kidnapped  and sent to Vaker, a planet with advanced technology, when she is mistaken for Lissa Olena, an alien princess hiding on Earth to escape a politically arranged marriage. Forced by the kind and attentive commander of security, Ruckus, to impersonate the princess until she can be found, Delaney refuses to be cowered, adding humor and bravery to her intense situation as a romance slowly develops between them. Her betrothal to Trystan, a cold and brooding prince from a neighboring planet, several assassination attempts, a possible love triangle, and exposure to a fascinating alien culture will take the mature young adult reader on an emotional roller coaster to a cliff-hanging ending that will pave the way for the second installment of this intriguing trilogy.
