General Note:
"A Tom Doherty Associates Book."
Summary, etc.:
"Princess Sun has finally come of age. Growing up in the shadow of her mother, Eirene, has been no easy task. The legendary queen-marshal did what everyone thought impossible: expel the invaders and build Chaonia into a magnificent republic, one to be respected--and feared. But the cutthroat ambassador corps and conniving noble houses have never ceased to scheme--and they have plans that need Sun to be removed as heir, or better yet, dead. To survive, the princess must rely on her wits and companions: her biggest rival, her secret lover, and a dangerous prisoner of war."--Provided by publisher.

    *Starred Review* In this exhilarating series opener, Princess Sun is eager to follow in her mother's footsteps by making the Republic of Chaonia a major player among the star systems connected by an ancient network that allows efficient space travel. Surrounded by loyal companions drawn from the leading families of Chaonia, Sun has the ambition to succeed in a place where constant surveillance—often in the form of popular broadcast Channel Idol—is the norm. But the queen-marshal seems unable to give her daughter praise, much less a military command. When one of Sun's companions is killed and replaced with his sister Persephone, subsequent events indicate treachery targeting Sun. Sun, Persephone, and the rest of their group have the opportunity to prove themselves during a daring attack from a rival power—they just have to survive. Elliott's addictive, character-driven space drama is a stirring found family narrative grounded in competence. Told from multiple viewpoints, the fast-paced narrative includes high-stakes space battles, political intrigue, clones, assassination attempts, sea monsters, lovers, creepy telepaths, and antagonistic empires in one irresistible package. Fans of Lois McMaster Bujold and N.K. Jemisin will find this a candidate for instant re-reading as soon as the last page is turned. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
