Off Balance, Aunare Chronicles

Nightmares are plaguing me.

I wake up smelling sulfur, feeling my skin burning, knowing that I’m burning to death on the surface of Abaddon, but I’m not. I’m on Sel’Ani, my father’s home planet. I’m alive and using my true name and finally free to be myself. And yet, I’m completely falling apart.

Every time I wake up screaming, Lorne is there. I don’t understand how he knows when I need him, but he does, and even if I can’t say the words aloud, I’m so thankful that he’s there. Because I wouldn’t survive this without him.

It’s not just my nightmares and exhaustion and trauma making this hard.

I thought escaping Earth, Abaddon, and SpaceTech would mean I was safe, but I’m not. The Aunare don’t want me here, mostly because if I’m here that means my betrothal to the heir to the Aunare High Throne is back on. I would call it off, but I can’t seem to make myself say the words because Lorne is the heir.

Everything in me is drawn to Lorne, the man that haunted my dreams, the man that lures me in with his every look, the man that I can’t seem to get away from because everywhere I go, every time I need him, he’s there.

Lorne makes me forget that the Aunare hate me enough to send assassins to kill me.

I can’t resist him. Lorne makes me think that everything is possible, that I will be okay, that I should just say yes to him. Because being with him means that I will eventually become the High Queen of the Aunare, and I’m not sure I can do that job. I’m not sure I should.

Because the Aunare hate me for being a half-Earther, and I’m just one more assassination attempt away from being dead.

Aileen Erin

USA Today bestselling author Aileen Erin is half-Irish, half-Mexican, and 100% nerd—from Star Wars (prequels don’t count) to Star Trek (TNG FTW). She geeks out on Tolkien's linguistics, and has a severe fascination with the supernatural. Aileen has a BS in Radio-TV-Film from the University of Texas at Austin, and an MFA in Writing Popular Fiction from Seton Hill University. She lives with her husband and daughter in Los Angeles, and spends her days doing her favorite things: reading books, creating worlds, and kicking ass.

Aileen is excited for two new releases in her four-part YA space opera series Aunare Chronicles in 2020, starting with Off Balance. After thirteen years fighting for survival, Amihanna di Aetes thought that she’d finally be safe on her father’s homeworld. But with Aunare blaming her for starting a war, everything is as far from okay as it could be. Her only respite from the chaos and pressures of her new life is Lorne ni Taure—the crown prince of the Aunare, her betrothed. He wants her to take her place at his side. To fight in the war with him. But why would she risk her life for people who want her dead?
