About this ebook

From USA Today bestselling author Rebecca Hefner

A new era dawns as ancient threats emerge…

Tordor, son of Queen Miranda and King Sathan, was born to inherit the immortal throne. But deep within, he feels a calling to help his people in other ways. As immersion with humans looms, he joins a clandestine team to offer his skills.

Esmerelda, daughter of Elf King Dakath, has spent centuries evading her father’s cruelty. Striving to create peace, she leads the team that will approach humans after the destruction of the ether. Having the kind, diplomatic immortal heir on her team is a fortuitous bonus.

As Esme and Tor work together to amalgamate the realms, Dakath’s interference intensifies, reinforcing Esme’s vow to remain free of close bonds. Even if the handsome prince is determined to break through her walls and claim her as his immortal mate…

Can Tordor push past Esme’s fears or will her father destroy their future before it’s begun?

Welcome back to Etherya’s Earth! If love a sizzling friends-to-lovers tale with a badass, tormented heroine and a hot prince determined to claim her, this book is for you! Enjoy the journey!

**The Etherya's Earth fantasy romance series is best read in order although each book does have its own featured hero/heroine and HEA. Content information can be found on the author's website.

I'm glad this is still going strong seven books in the Etherya's Earth series, it had what I was looking for in this series. Rebecca Hefner has a great writing style and I always enjoy reading anything from her. The characters were what I was expecting and they felt like real people. I can't wait to continue this series. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

This is for the audiobook version: First and foremost, I'm glad for the new narrator. It's the next generation story so it's fitting to have a fresh new voice. Etherya's Earth has been a favorite series of mine from the beginning and it's my opinion that what Rebecca Hefner is doing from this audiobook on is refreshing. She's letting the "young" ones take the lead now. This is Tor and Esme's story. Tor is Sathan and Miranda's son. Esme is an emotionally broken elf hybrid. She also happens to be a disinherited princess. Their love story is a hard fought tumultuous one with new friends and new enemies. You get action, drama, steam, cameos of beloved characters, sneak peeks of new characters, a plot that keeps you listening (without pausing) and a twist you may not see coming. I see great things for the direction this series is going and the narrator doesn't disappoint. Nor does Rebecca Hefner but that goes without saying.

Book seven of this series has nothing but the best of Rebecca’s best imagination all rolled into one volume of beautifully designed fiction. Can’t wait to dive into more. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
