There's a saying on Earth: "Fake it till you make it." Sadly, I'm no longer on Earth. My motto is: "Fake it till you get caught."
I'm trying to settle into being the Oath Forger, trying to resist the advances of the five most powerful kings in the galaxy (it's going about as well as you'd think), expecting my lies to catch up with me at any second.
Except, the freaking space pirates catch up with me first.
I'm a scavenger. So what? With society's collapse on Earth, I do what I have to for survival. Especially after I'm kidnapped by space pirates. I have no idea why the five most powerful rulers in the universe decide that I'm the Oath Forger, the one foretold to fuse their royal houses together and bring peace. But I'm going to play along. Because, hey, it's better than probes in uncomfortable places. Now let's just hope they don't find out I'm lying.
Another day, another planet conquered. Except this time, instead of sending intergalactic warlord Lukar Xon off to the next war, the Emperor gifts him with a governorship and a princess.
Meela is the heir to a fallen kingdom. She is the conqueror's prize. But she will bow to no one. Certainly not to a barbarian! She might have to surrender her body to the beast, but she will not surrender her heart.
Let the bedroom games begin!
