Liberation of the enslaved Lokmane begins with the king. A’yen and Fae agree to visit the Hidden, a group of escaped Lokmane, to protect his identity while the Shadows make their move with emancipation acts.

This book is an excellent read. The universe Smith has created is one I can easily immerse myself in, and remain stuck in there for days after I've finished reading one of these books.

The second book in the A'yen's Legacy series, The King's Mistress is a continuation of the storyline begun in My Name Is A'yen. We follow A'yen and Fae as they figure out what's required of them as the next king and queen of the Lokmane, but some new characters are introduced, particularly Da'Ro, mentioned in My Na

What an awesomely unique story! Previously, I was a die-hard contemporary ‘romance & suspense ONLY' reader, at least before this past summer :o After finding & reading this new author’s first book, I was hooked by her amazing gift with words & an imagination so fascinating, that I now love reading a new genre, though I’m not sure what this style is classified as, but it has spell-binding, futuristic, sci-fi, paranormal fiction with romance & suspense! ... I loved the first book, “My Name is A’ye ...more

What I liked:
As always, Smith plays on the emotions of the reader with her tortured heroes, and the theme of slavery and what it means to be a slave, to have no rights of your own including what you do with your own body. The political situations and implications of this universe as a whole and what the abolishment of slavery would take and its consequences are fully explored and deftly explained without being an info dump. You see it clearly through the eyes of all those affected, on both side

This is the 2nd A'yen Legacy book and you really must read 'My Name is A'yen/Book 1 before reading this.

A'yen now knows he is destined to be the next King, he has to deal with the turmoil of knowing what is expected of him, and Fae has to deal with knowing she will oneday be queen. A'yen will now fight with everything he has for the life of freedom of all the Loks-Me people, to right the wrongs and let everyone including himself and Fae have the freedom they deserve. A'yen and Fae need to trave

Rachel Leigh Smith’s “The King’s Mistress” is the second book in her A’yen’s Legacy series. It’s an interesting science fiction romance novel. Sort of “Stargate” meets “In Distress” by Caethes Faron (which is a M/M read that’s very well done). The series is daring – I like that she took the chance to have the leading man have a history with another man. The main characters, Fae and A’yen are both complex and multifaceted. Definitely a book for smart readers to really dig into. This is definitely ...more

A'yen and Fae's story continues. A'yen is on course to be crowned king of the Lok'me, and on the planet that his new wife discovered was their actual home planet. But an old enemy wants his revenge, and he'll do whatever it takes to keep A'yen from the crown. Fae is learning the hard way of what is expected of her as the future queen, and her life has done nothing to prepare her for it.

As A'yen's enemies close in, he learns he has friends in low places. But what will these revelations cost him?
