Cloak of War - Rhonda Mason

The bloody tournament to determine the new empress of the intergalactic empire may be over, but for Reinumon, the battle is just beginning. To free her home planet from occupation, Kayla must infiltrate the highest reaches of imperial power. But when a deadly nanovirus threatens to ravage the empire, it will take more than diplomacy to protect her homeworld from all-out war. 


My thoughts:
It is getting intense in this one. The arena fights are over, Kayla won as her princess persona and now the real princess is in a coma so Kayla has to keep the charade up.

Kayla, well she is a fighter, obviously. And she does not have it easy. She had no choice than to fight in the arena. She has to pretend to be the princess. All because of who she was. And it does make me dislike the princess and the ones doing it to Kayla. She just wants her family and her country back.

It's not always easy to know who the bad ones are here. Yes I get that the princess has her plans, and she does want Wyrd space to be free. So she does get that the Empire is bad. But the way she does it, not cool.

There is a lot of action. Bad guys, conspiracies, space travel, a big bad virus, yes like I said things are heating up. And it did make it an interesting ride.

I tried to check since it does give me a YA feeling, but no one had placed it under YA, so I am unsure. But it really works both as adult and YA. Adult for the kick-ass stuff, YA because of the simpler way of it all.

It was good, fast paced and kept me entertained.

  10. Looks like an interesting space opera! I too get thrown off occasionally by these "maybe YA" books, but having crossover appeal can be a good thing sometimes.
