Publisher's Summary

Princess Cosima will be queen, if she survives to her 18th birthday.

In a galaxy controlled by massive corporations, few worlds are truly free. When explorers find a priceless wormhole near Sidonia, the hostile attention of the Aquitaine Corporation focuses on the small, backwater kingdom.

To protect their world, Sidonia's royalty rush 17-year-old Princess Cosima into an arranged marriage, one that will guarantee a treaty and shield Sidonia from Aquitaine's clutches. But Cosima never asked for the honor of becoming the next queen to a man she doesn't love.

With the fate the planet in the balance, a team of deadly assassins targets Cosima. The best killers money can buy will see the Princess dead before her wedding day. Cosima will need her wits to uncover the identity of the assassins targeting her, and her courage to stay alive in the middle of an interstellar power struggle.

If you like space opera novels with intrigue, a fast-paced plot, and a tale of survival against impossible odds, then listen to The Queen of Sidonia today!

PG-13 for sci-fi action, wartime violence, and alcohol references.

This is no fairy tale.

Queen of Sidonia

This story was a surprise, in a very good way.

I’m not usually a fan of stories with class nobility. Usually the trope is tired, worn, and utterly predictable. That was not the case with this one. This is a very good story. The end was not about a fairy tale ending. It was about what must be done, and why.

I am always dubious when going into stories about aristocracies. Usually, it’s the same princess story with different character names. You know the type. Worn out storylines and narratives so predictable if feels like the only effort needed is to remember the character names. That was NOT this story.

This story has it all. Action, tension, sacrifice, betrayal, and even comedic moments. The tropes that were written was done thoughtfully and well served. There wasn’t a fairy tale ending. There was a bittersweet, satisfying end that had me feeling several emotions at once.

The narrator was the voice for this story.
Highly recommend. This is a story that has stuck with me.

5 stars all around.
