Losing Amalia

Veredian Chronicles Book 1.5

Regine Abel

Release Date: May 19, 2017

 

 

This is not a full-length novel. It is a bonus scene from Escaping Fate, Veredian Chronicles Book 1 told in Lhor’s POV. Please read Escaping Fate first to fully enjoy this bonus scene.

EXCERPT
Her sultry voice stirred the embers, deep in my gut, of a fire I had not felt in years. The same powerful connection struck me when our eyes met. My skin tingled and my pulse perked up. Her throat worked and her pupils dilated. She quickly looked away, breaking the bond.

 

 

 

    

5 hearts!

Losing Amalia is a quick read set in between Escaping Fate (Book 1) and Blind Fate (Book 2) of the Veredian Chronicles by author Regine Abel.  It is not a standalone and must be read after Escaping Fate.

In the first book, the Fastening Ceremony was told from Amalia’s and Khel’s point of view.  In this short story, we are given Lhor’s point of view during the same ceremony.

I love being back in this world and I have fallen even more in love with these characters!  I absolutely recommend reading this series!

Born and raised on a slaver’s ship, Amalia plans to escape before she’s forced to participate in her master’s psi breeding program.

Between her master’s dogged pursuit, deadly rivalries, assassins, and corrupted nobles, can the cousins keep Amalia safe or will their respective feelings for her tear them apart?

Escaping Fate is a captivating Sci-Fi romance from author Regine Abel.  This story is completely enthralling and I had a difficult time putting down my Kindle!  The characters are complex and well developed and it kept my attention throughout the 450+ page book!

In this story, Amalie escaped the captures who held her prisoner for her whole life. She went to the planet’s Fastening Ceremony in search for a mate.  She hoped to find one to help protect her from those hunting her.  She becomes enchanted to two cousins and has a difficult time selecting, but chooses Khel, the general of the planet’s Army. Lhor was excited for his cousin, but crushed that Amelia did not choose him.

How will Lhor handle living in the same house with both Khel and Amalie?  Can Khel manage his jealousy with Lhor and Amalie’s friendship?

A great story and I definitely recommend!

Born in a breeding compound, Valena has never known a day of freedom. As a child, her master burned her retinas to prevent her from mind-controlling those who meet her gaze. But she still controls people’s thoughts with a touch. Sold to the Xelix Prime Blood Houses, she is forced to use her ability to keep the other slaves compliant. When Fate places a powerful Counselor in her path, she plots and schemes to use him to escape, until her feelings for him complicate matters.

As her master’s plans take on a darker turn, lies, betrayal, and tragedy threaten any hope she ever held of a better future.

This book is standalone and the sequel to Escaping Fate.
