Thrown head first into a barbaric world she knows nothing of, Braita Valorn must adapt to the dark life as a slave. Her survival hinges on it. With her freedom stolen, her existence is now controlled by the possessive Plumas of the West.

Only Braita never expected to fall for these two Pluma leaders of the East.
Braita is a fighter. She demands her freedom most of all. And this slave is willing to use her own tricks to get what she wants. Including her men..

*** I voluntarily reviewed this book, I gained no monetary incentives nor was I specifically requested to review the book, these are my honest ramblings and I hope you enjoy reading them - kat***
There are 3 worlds Joyal which is where the descendants of Earth live, Kireg where the white-haired skinned inhabitants can mind read/ manipulate and Mian - A Warrior breed that have pointy ears, and have glowing eyes.
Joyal don't touch/embrace or have sex anymore ( Yeah shudder lol) Braita Valorn and her friend Jax are sold off as slaves by the corrupt President of Joyal, with no choice and no chance at saying goodbye to friends they are sent to Mian, in space suits with a limited supply of oxygen! what a start to a new life.
It's a good job that Braita and Jax were being trained as soldiers, it comes in very handy when they arrive on the planet.
I liked this story at the start, Braita survives and is sent to live with 2 men (the Plumas - men - live in pairs and have harems.)
She is their Soulmate, and can't be too far away from them physically, but treat her more like a pet, and when she finally figures out why she runs away... and eventually into the hands of Jax's owners, Pluma leaders of the East.
OK I know I was reading an ARC so the typos I will ignore, but the flow of the story gets confusing in places especially in regards of the soulmates, and the way no human have skin to skin contact anymore, which it seems neither Braita or Jax have a problem with when they land, after 18 yrs of no contact!.
I am not going to reveal too much, I don't do spoilers.
There isn't much sex in this book (surprising for Scarlett), so be advise if you were thinking you were going to get some group sex or something.
Like I said, I enjoyed the premise, and the world that Scarlett has created, but I feel that after reading other books of the authors, it could have been much better, so it gets a 3 star from me.
