Empress of a Thousand Skies Blog Tour

Hello, everyone! I am so excited to be apart of the Empress of a Thousand Skies Blog Tour! The second book, Blood of a Thousand Stars releases this month!  Below you will find my review for Empress of a Thousand Skies! Let's get started!

A sweeping sci-fi fantasy adventure that follows two fugitives -- a princess-in-exile and her accused killer -- across the galaxy as they fight to reclaim her family dynasty and save the universe from a deadly threat.
     Crown Princess Rhiannon, known as Rhee, has deadly accuracy with a blade and a thirst for vengeance. After her family perished in a suspicious spacecraft accident when she was just a child, Rhee grew up in exile while a corrupt government ruled in her stead. Now, Rhee has finally come of age to claim her title as Empress... and to avenge her family.

     But on the eve of her coronation, Rhee is brutally attacked by a government assassin and only narrowly escapes with her life. Without knowing who she can trust, Rhee goes into hiding, relying only on her sharp instincts and her trusty blade to survive.

     Across the galaxy, pilot Alyosha has risen above his war refugee origins to find fame as the popular star of a reality holo-vision show. But when Aly is framed for the attack on Rhee, he goes from celebrity to fugitive in an instant. On the run from the formidable UniForce army, Aly knows that his only hope is to find the princess and clear his name.

     Thrown together by an act of violence, Rhee and Aly eventually discover the attack is just one part of a larger plan with devastating, far-reaching consequences for the entire galaxy.

My Review
 First I have to mention the cover, it's beautiful. I just love all the colors! Anyway moving away from the cover, the inside was just as fantastic! I liked the dual point of view. For me, I'm usually not fond of multiple points of views. However, it worked nicely for Empress of a thousand Skies. 
I liked the world building and the writing just hooks you. I did not want to put this book down!There is a lot of action and twists and turns that keep you on the edge of your seat. I loved the fact that the characters are diverse! I really  enjoyed reading Empress of a Thousand Skies! If you're looking for an adventure then you should pick this book up! I can't wait to start reading Blood of a Thousand Stars! Also, the cover is amazing! 
I also want to thank Penguin Teen for the copy of Empress of a Thousand  Skies and an arc of Blood of a Thousand Skies! This did not affect my review of either book.

War tears the galaxy apart, power tests the limits of family, and violence gives way to freedom in this exhilarating sequel to Empress of a Thousand Skies.
With a revolution brewing, Rhee is faced with a choice: make a deal with her enemy, Nero, or denounce him and risk losing her crown.

Framed assassin Alyosha has one goal in mind: kill Nero. But to get his revenge, Aly may have to travel back to the very place he thought he'd left forever--home.

Kara knows that a single piece of technology located on the uninhabitable planet Wraeta may be the key to remembering--and erasing--the princess she once was.

Villainous media star Nero is out for blood, and he'll use means necessary to control the galaxy.

     Vicious politics and high-stakes action culminate in an epic showdown that will determine the fate of the universe.
