Anna Erishkigal (annaerishkigal) Greetings Space Opera Fans!

Beyond the Red brings sibling rivalry to a whole new level when Kora, an alien queen, is framed for the murder of her betrothed by her power-hungry younger brother who wants the throne for himself. Enter Eros, a half-human/half-alien bodyguard, rioting alien citizens, and a plot for human genocide, you've got one heck of a space opera.

Beyond the Red (Beyond the Red, #1) by Ava Jae Ava Jae

Alien queen Kora has a problem as vast as the endless crimson deserts. She’s the first female ruler of her territory in generations, but her people are rioting and call for her violent younger twin brother to take the throne. Despite assassination attempts, a mounting uprising of nomadic human rebels, and pressure to find a mate to help her rule, she’s determined to protect her people from her brother’s would-be tyrannical rule.

Eros is a rebel soldier hated by aliens and human alike for being a half-blood. Yet that doesn’t stop him from defending his people, at least until Kora’s soldiers raze his camp and take him captive. He’s given an ultimatum: be an enslaved bodyguard to Kora, or be executed for his true identity—a secret kept even from him.

When Kora and Eros are framed for the attempted assassination of her betrothed, they flee. Their only chance of survival is to turn themselves in to the high court, where revealing Eros’s secret could mean a swift public execution. But when they uncover a violent plot to end the human insurgency, they must find a way to work together to prevent genocide.
