A thoroughly engaging short read. Princess Amira is a self confident and likeable character, with no illusions about her inherited status and who is completely devoid of the airs and graces which might be expected of a Princess. Indeed, much to the annoyance of her father, she wears peasant clothes and does what she can to help the indigenous inhabitants of her planet, the Tuchaska, who form the labor force for the prince's estates and are now afflicted by a mysterious illness.
When her father arranges to marry her off to a man she detests, for socio-economic reasons, she flees from her home planet seeking refuge with the parents of her late husband. However she is to learn that not everything is as it seems and she finds it more and more difficult to know where her true safety lies, and who, if any, she can really trust.
The 'Demon Admiral ' is a compelling and unsuual hero. A non-human species, he nevertheless shares Amira's interests and is honourable and brave - as well as extremely attractive. Despite the differences of species, race and social status, he has much in common with her and he mutual attraction is undeniable.
Greta Van Der Rohl manages to combine enough suspense, romance and political intrigue into ninety four pages to fill a full length novel. There are some hot, sexy love scenes and a satisfying conclusion.
