SCIENCE FICTION

In the matriarchal world of Cyria, young Princess Violet of the Royal House of Geminon is the heiress to the throne and ruling seat of power. The ancient house’s line of rulers are keepers of psychokinetic forces that stretch back millennia.  The Geminese reign over the planet’s classes of males has survived due to the genetic curation of each man’s role in society. Be their function defense, stewardship, procreation, or some other form of labor, the purpose of any living male is to be of service to the Crown.

 

Upon her only daughter’s seventeen birthday, Queen Edrea II of Cyria, reveals to her people the name of the princess’ future consort for royal union: Prince Xander of the House of Virgon.  The alpha male has been chosen by her Majesty for his elite warfare education in warfare and achievements in battle.  It is the Queen’s expectation this consort’s role will be more significant than merely to sire a future heiress of Her house.

 

When Violet takes a palace servant to her bed as a display of protest, a single night with young Raziel quickly becomes an infatuation the princess cannot hide. When that infatuation more, it shakes the very foundations of the Palace of Geminon as Violet makes a decision that may change the future of her entire world.
