From New York Times bestselling author Erin Kellison, All That Glitters is the first science fiction romance in the exciting and passionate adventures of the Sol sisters.Thoughts on All That Glitters: Ahh, yes. Deadly worlds kind of make my day. Fill them with critters that don't give a fig if any interlopers (that would be the humans, guys) live or die and it makes it even more exciting. Throw in a group of rebels trying to right a wrong and I'm hooked.
Cheated out of a fortune by the Sol royal family, lowborn Simon Miner will do anything to get his revenge, no matter how ruthless. When Princess Mica Sol, a terraforming expert, is shot out of the sky on the way to her sister's lavish wedding, she fears the worst—scavengers—and flees into an alien jungle to avoid capture. But the man who pursues and captures her is none other than Simon, her former lover. Passions reignite as violence rocks Sol City, and Simon and Mica must fight for love, family, and their world...or lose everything.
Although, I guess Simon wasn't really a rebel. He was simply trying to turn a tragedy that stripped him of his livelihood into justice for the people most affected by it. And also get revenge. BECAUSE SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO EXTRACT DARK VENGEANCE UPON THOSE WHO THWART YOU. AMIRITE?!?!
Right. So, Mica is kinda a badass. She has the chops to survive in a hostile environment and the brains to turn a bad situation to her advantage. She's also smart enough to see what she nearly lost and grab onto it with both hands. I mean, it took her a while to get to the grabbing part, but she did get there.
As an aside, I DID NOT like Pilar when we first met her. Buuuut, she redeemed herself by the end of the book. I'm intrigued by her story since it looks like she's marrying into a family that's all kinds of messed up.
Deadly worlds, dangerous men, and women who are willing to fight to the bitter end to get what they want. NICE!
