Since the last of the great wars, nuclear fallout and global warming have bred fear and suspicion among earth’s inhabitants, but they have also bred a new kind of human, which has the rest of the species terrified of annihilation.

Prejudice, fear and hatred have ruled Adarkan’s entire life. They are the reason for her birth and overcoming them is her destiny. She does not have time for love or lust, but when her father’s arrogant Beta opens the door to passion, he teaches her the value of a stolen moment and destroys her objectivity. How can she convince both talon and humans to see her as a neutral party in the battle for peace when her body, mind, and heart cry for her talon mate?

As a warrior, Gralak understands the importance of duty and dedication to a cause. As second in command, he trains soldiers to focus on their obligations above all else. These rules guide his life until he meets a lone female who teases his mind and body and makes him questions his dedication to anything except her. Can he protect his love from physical danger and a life of loneliness, or will his own aspirations to become Alpha damn him to an equally cheerless fate?

She was supposed to be courageous. She was supposed to succeed her father’s rule. She was supposed to be a boy. So what’s a girl to do when she’s of mixed heritage and not accepted on either side? Take charge and rule on her own terms.

The writing style of Adarkan’s Salvation was very tight and kept the reader involved. The entire story, though a fantasy work, was very easy for the reader to relate to. Everyone has moments where they have to face adversity. Adarkan proved that being a woman shouldn’t hold back peace. I enjoyed the duel plotlines of this work. The reader can chose to root for Adarkan and Gralak to come to terms with their love. In addition, the reader can cheer for the love rekindled between Kylean and Rakar. There were many touching moments that made the story unique, such as the meeting in which Adarkan shows Rakar how his words of love were misunderstood by her mother for years because of simple syntax error. It shows that even though the king was a Talon, he was ultimately human as well.

If you want a sweeping fantasy where the woman must take charge, then Adarkan’s Salvation is just the read for you! I give this work 4 ½ cherries!
