Delaney might have done her job a little TOO well…and now her life has once again been turned upside down by aliens, this time by a deadly (and devastatingly handsome) alien prince in this explosive second installment of Chani Lynn Feener’s The Xenith Trilogy.
Delaney has been kidnapped by aliens. Again. After only a month back on Earth with her hot new alien boyfriend Ruckus, the deadly and devastatingly handsome prince Trystan has dragged her right back to his planet.
While some girls may dream of winning a prince’s heart, Delaney just wishes this one would leave her alone. Instead, she finds herself at the center of both a tense political battle between two alien kingdoms and Trystan’s romantic attentions, both of which are absolutely ruining the life she’s built on Earth. Not to mention the fact that she’s about to be crowned queen of a planet she’s barely even visited. Just another day in the life of an ordinary human girl.
Readers won’t want to miss Between Frost and Fury, the compelling, fast-paced sequel to Chani Lynn Feener’s Amid Stars and Darkness.
“We might have a problem.”
“Something’s happened to Delaney,” he said, that tightening feeling in his chest getting worse when her voicemail answered yet again.
“There’s a Kint ship,” Fawna told him, momentarily glancing away to use the control panel in her own craft. He couldn’t see it from the small screen, but the sound of her clicking keys gave it away. “I don’t know how long it’s been here. It was doing a very good job cloaking its presence. Could be they arrived before me.”
His stomach bottomed out and he gripped the edge of the counter to keep himself from visibly swaying.
He and Fawna had only just ended their conversation moments before he’d phoned Delaney to fill her in. Because Xenith and Earth were in different galaxies, communications were limited to a certain range. Fawna had come all the way to tell him about the political unrest in Vakar, which meant she was till directly outside Earth’s orbit.
And apparently she wasn’t alone.
“Whose ship?” Ruckus asked, though he was already rushing down the hall towards Mariana’s bedroom where he’d last seen the car keys. He’d drive down to the beach and find out what was going on.
Because he was being paranoid, and there was no possible way what he feared was happening really was. No possible—
“I believe it’s the Zane’s,” Fawna confirmed, basically shattering any remaining hope he had left. “Wait,” she paused then added, “it looks like a smaller craft is about to board. Ruckus…it’s coming from Earth.”
Without stopping, he swiveled on his heels, adjusting his course of trajectory. He snatched the phone off the counter just in case, and quickly checked to make sure his fritz was turned on as he headed towards the front door.
“Pick me up,” he ordered, holding the screen up so Fawna could see the moment he got outside, “now.”
“We don’t know she’s been taken…” Fawna began, though he could tell she was already preparing to do as he’d said. The consol before her began to whir and a digital voice announced preparations to approach the planet.
“She’s on that ship,” he stated, moving past the driveway around to the back of the apartment building. There was more space there in the yard. “Just get here.”
He disconnected the device before she could respond, shoving it into his back pocket so he could try dialing Delaney one last time, already knowing it was useless. There was only one reason for the Zane’s specific ship to be hovering outside of Earth.
Ruckus struggled against the mixture of anger and terror that warred within him, trying to keep his mind clear enough to run the calculations. If they’d just taken her, Delaney wasn’t too far ahead. He could board Fawna’s ship and be close behind, arrive shortly after.
The sound of an engine roared above him and he tipped his head back in time to see the smaller craft drop its camouflage, seemingly appearing out of thin air. A small hatch at the bottom opened and a metal bar dropped down into his already waiting hand.
And then he’d do whatever he had to do to get Delaney safely back.
