True Rating 3.5 stars!

Scandal is set in a futuristic society where there are houses of power who run the show. Imagine if trust fund babies could use their scandals and accomplishments to manipulate the outcomes of Wall Street. In this story, using Social Capital the characters are able to influence fans in a set of strategic moves. This results in an outcome that would be profitable for the ones who knew when to buy and sell according to the index or financially crippling for those who don’t. N

Before I go into a deep review of Scandal, I wish to make a quick point. The three star rating is a rounded down rating. I had a huge internal battle of whether I was going to round my three-point-five star rating up or whether I would round it down. In the end, I opted to round this down. For many, it will be an easy four-star rating, yet I decided to hold off on that four-star rating as I believe book two will easily pull such a rating from me and I have no wish to lessen that potential four s ...more

I received a free copy from the author and voluntarily reviewed it.

Athena Grayson was on my radar for a while now, but this is the first book by her that I actually read. And I am so glad I did, because this book was so good! I was impressed with the world the author created in this book and once I got through the first few chapters I was engrossed in the story. It was fascinating to see everything play out. The story is quite slow paced, but I mean that in the best possible way. The slow pace r

Ingenious take on the cult of celebrity, what high society does to give itself meaning, and economics. Add a romantic plot, complex sibling tensions, creepy elements just at the edges, and I'm sold. I'm really excited for more!

When a princess who's no stranger to scandal runs afoul of the secrets of the most powerful cabal on Landfall, even her crown can't protect her from the consequences.


They have anything they want...except a future.
Nothing infuriates Princess Ione Ra more than having someone else take control of her reputation from her, and her old nemesis--gossip journalist Jaris Pulne--is poised to do just that with pilfered pics of her caught in a compromising position with her power-couple partner. As someone

At first, it was a little hard to get into the flow of Scandal: Scions of the Star Empire #1 with trying to understand the premise of the world and characters. But once you did, it was non-stop action and adventure.

The characters were interesting and had depth. I especially liked Teshi and her wit and sarcasm. I also liked Ione Ra, the main character, for her strength and personality, and her relationship with Den. I enjoyed the story and am looking forward to reading Fallout to find out what h
