Chapter 15 (Excerpt #1)
King Julius had gotten busy with meetings, and I didn’t get a chance to speak with him. I searched for the king and couldn’t find him anywhere. I decided to see if he was in his bedroom. I raised my arm to knock on his door, but it was cracked open slightly. King Julius was talking to our technology specialist, Kanen. It was rude to eavesdrop, but I couldn’t help myself. It sounded like an intense conversation.
“Your Highness, you have to stop beating yourself up.”
“It’s hard not to; my decision caused severe consequences. At the time, I believed it was the right choice. I was only thinking of their survival. But I have regretted that decision ever since.”
“I understand your turmoil, but you need to forgive yourself. They survived.”
“But another catastrophe has arisen from that choice. It almost got an innocent killed.”
“They recused her.”
“Well, if I had not sent them there in the first place, then she wouldn’t have needed to be saved.”
“They needed to go to Earth, regardless. We needed the black diamonds.”
What was this about? Why did King Julius feel so guilty?
“I just want my son home and safe. I almost destroyed his life once. I’ll feel better once he is back in the Sonar galaxy.”
“There’s no logical explanation why the force shield didn’t hold around the ship, because it should have. That’s not your fault. You had no idea they would be thrown from the ship and separated. They were only supposed to crash, but still be together. Fate has a cruel way of unleashing its path. Even though a lot of things are unfair, everything happens for a reason,” Kanen explained.
No! This could not be happening. My own father- in-law is the one who sabotaged our ship and caused us to crash?
Being the second in a series, there were plenty of things going on that were from the first book, but they are well explained, so as not to leave a lot of confusion.
The characters here are not as engaging as I would like, however. I was not drawn into their story and as a result, I had a hard time staying on track.
As an independent reviewer for Romance Authors that Rock, I can only give this one three hearts. The story and ideas are great but I just couldn’t get involved in any of the characters.
