To love and protect...across worlds.
Eighteen-year-old Hope Wincrest calls the Outback of Australia her home away from home. She is a princess of Dralion from the planet Magio, where the two leading nations are at war. While in the Outback, Hope is warned by her warrior father--who holds the prophetic ability of forethought--that she is about to meet an enemy protector. She doesn’t expect him to be her soul-bound mate, a man she must now work with to piece together her unknown mother’s lost heritage.
Peacio’s Silas Carver follows the calling of his soul to Australia, only not all goes as planned. Discovering Hope is his mate has him demanding his release from their bond. She agrees, but only if he first helps her learn about her mother.
Hope must lay her life in Silas’s hands during a journey which takes them deep into foreign lands. Waging a battle of the heart, and of the land, can the young mated pair find their place with each other?

This is the second book in the series. When I started out reading it I did not realize this. The book seemed to start out in the middle of a story and I kept getting confused on some of the characters and what was going on. Once I figured out that it was the second book in the series it made a little more sense to me that it was in the middle of a story. I would recommend reading the first book in the series before reading this one.
It took me a while to get warmed up to this story but once I got involved in it I enjoyed it very much. The book focuses on Hope and her soul-bound mate. I like the snarkiness between the characters and attitudes that they have in this story. The romance is a destined from birth type romance so if you do not like that then this may not be for you. Both girls Faith and Hope have soul-bound mates. They are also the enemy of their father’s people. I liked how the author set this up so that the first two books are leading up to trying to bring peace to the two warring kingdoms.
I can’t wait to read the next one to see if the girls and their mates are able to bring peace to both kingdoms and if they will track down Hope and Faith’s grandmother. Their grandmother would be able to bring a lot more answers to the table for them.
All in all this is a good series but I would recommend reading the first book before this one. I can’t wait to see the next book and I will go back and read the first book.
