Publisher's Summary

Two young princes on opposite sides of a war must decide between loyalty and love in this galaxy-shaking finale of the Bloodright Trilogy.

“Skrutskie handily sticks the landing. Series fans are sure to be pleased.”—
Publishers Weekly

Gal and Ettian have never been farther apart. Once, they were roommates and best friends, each suffocating under a secret of galactic consequence. When Gal’s came to light—that he was heir to the Umber Empire and all of its brutal conquest—the two were forced to flee their military academy, fall in with a brewing rebellion to reclaim the Archon Empire from Umber’s grasp, and face their long-held feelings for each other.

Then the rebellion discovered Gal’s identity and to save his life, Ettian had no choice but to unveil his own secret: that he was the long-lost heir to the Archon throne. With Gal as a political prisoner, Ettian began the fight to restore his own empire—and to open Gal’s eyes to the possibility of a galaxy reclaimed from Umber’s greed. But just when Gal was starting to come around, a team of Umber operatives rescued him from Archon’s clutches and dragged him home to take up his crown.

Now, separated for the first time and in full command of the might of their respective forces, the star-crossed rulers find themselves truly at odds. And with the war reaching a tipping point, the time has finally come for Gal and Ettian to confront what they owe their empires, their friends, and each other if they’re ever to forge a universe where the two of them can be together.

Gwyn is abusive and it takes a weird hetero turn

It was a good story till she wrote Gwyn into a manipulative user and she took the queerness out of it. Straight marriage was not needed nor desired. Puke.

great gay space opera

Fantastic young adult series about some gay monarchies IN SPACE. I was a bit iffy on the messages being sent by the constant focus on blood-right and genetic determinism in the series, but the end had the right message.

An amazing finale.

I love this trilogy! I was counting down the hours to when this dropped, and could barely put it down when I started. I’m lucky i had today off from work because, ruttin’ hell— I wouldn’t have made it otherwise!

I love the structure of this book, how there are multiple points of views that you can experience throughout it. I will say there are definitely parts of this story I had to completely stop what I was doing to really take in what was happening— and the different twists and turns made my head spin! I love that about a book!!

Overall a fantastic conclusion to the trilogy, with plenty of blanket-kick worthy moments and events that caused my bedroom wall to take more than enough frustrated shouting. I enjoyed this final book and the story overall, dare I say this is a new comfort series for me!

Great trilogy, couldn't put it down

I loved listening to the books in this trilogy. I'm a fan of sci-fi and the world and back story were interesting and fresh.

When I thought I knew where the story was going, I was wrong and when I had no idea where it was going I was curious and near addicted.

The twists were good and the conclusion was apt.

Now I'm looking for another series as good as this to listen to.
