"Blast off to where keeping faith in love gives you second chances!"

Susan Grant's The Star King is loaded with adventure, faith, love, and earth shattering romance. Ms. Grant takes us on a star filled adventure across the universe to show us the unimaginable...and makes it real for the reader.

The story opens with jet pilot Jasmine Hamilton (Jas) crash landing in the desert during the Gulf War. Struggling to survive, her world coalesces with another and Jas comes into contact with a downed pilot from another universe also struggling to survive. But before she can sort our what is happening her own world goes dark and the amazing man she met is lost to her.

Twenty year later, we find Jas has retired from the military, married, had twins, and become an artist. Her marriage however has failed, her heart is unfulfilled and the adventure of her soul is waiting to happen, as the events of that night 20 years ago still haunt her dreams. However Jas is about to have a second chance, not only with her desire for adventure, but for the man that stole her heart so many years ago; for earth has just made contact with the alien culture called the Vash Nadah.

Romlijhian B'kah (Rom), once heir to the thrown of the Vash Nadah, is now roaming the universe as a rebel tradesman. For 20 years ago he and his brother set out to stop a new fanatical faction that threatens the pacifist culture of the Vash Federation. Unfortunately his mission, though successful to some degree, goes awry and his own father casts Rom aside from the throne. The only saving grace since that time is the dark haired Angel that came to him during that experience and saved his life. An Angel he has been looking for all his life.

With Jas's driving need to find adventure and awaken her soul, she steals away under false pretense aboard the Quillie, a ship run by Rom. Here worlds collide, dreams come alive, and love gets a second chance. But can this love take flight when the once quieted faction that rose up to destroy Vash federation, awakens and sees their solution in an earth dweller woman? For Sharron is a maniacal man and believes Jasmine to be his destiny as well.

The dynamics of the characters in this book are excellent. Jasmine is a strong woman whose had her share of punches in life, but manages to get back up for the greater good. Rom is strong, resilient and relentless, without compromising his role as leader. Together they find hope and faith in love that surpasses even them. The Star King soars to new heights and leads the reader on a magnificent adventure to a whole new universe of possibilities. Superb book Ms. Grant.
