THE FALLEN PRINCE
April 5, 2016, Sky Pony Press
Riven has fought for a hard-won peace in her world, and has come to shaky terms with who and what she is—a human with cyborg DNA. Now that the rightful ruler of Neospes has been reinstated, Riven is on the hunt for her father in the Otherworld to bring him to justice for his crimes against her people.
But when she receives an unwelcome visit from two former allies, she knows that trouble is brewing once again in Neospes. The army has been decimated and there are precious few left to fight this mysterious new threat.
To muster a first line of defense, her people need help from the one person Riven loathes most—her father. But what he wants in return is her complete surrender.
And now Riven must choose: save Neospes or save herself.
“This second book of The Riven Chronicles is packed with action. Imagery is the highlight of this book.” ~ VOYA Magazine

PRAISE FOR THE FALLEN PRINCE
“An engaging combination of soap opera and space cowboys, this sequel to The Almost Girl(2016) charges along from action scene to action scene, with a few tender moments thrown in. The hero is an amped-up girl with cyborg DNA and some nifty tech to both fight and conquer, including portals that move people from Earth to Neospes and its surroundings. Although the action is planetside rather than in true space, give this to readers who liked Star Wars.” ~ Cindy Welch, Booklist
“This second book of The Riven Chronicles is packed with action. Imagery is the highlight of this book, particularly the rich descriptions of rare botanical gardens in Avaria, a country where Riven finds new allies.” ~ VOYA Magazine
“Hand this lesser-known series to fans of “The Hunger Games” and “Divergent” who are still looking for new dystopian battles to get invested in.” ~ School Library Journal
“This sequel to The Almost Girl was everything I wanted: non-stop action, smart science, new and intriguing characters, and a satisfying romance. I couldn’t put it down! ” ~ Page Morgan, author of The Beautiful & The Cursed
“A parallel-dimension–jumping cyborg soldier must make questionable alliances to save her country from an existential threat in this sequel to The Almost Girl. Some double-crosses are effective and cyborg interfacing cool. [...] The story strengthens as it goes on and offers a solid conclusion.” ~ Kirkus Reviews
“The Fallen Prince is precisely what I was expecting from the sequel to The Almost Girl: an exciting and gripping adventure in a truly post-apocalyptic setting that stands apart from other dystopian landscapes by virtue of its original and thoughtful details. From peculiar flora and fauna to unusual technology leftover from the brutal war, and the immersive attention to detail with scorching temperatures and the necessary biotechnology to survive them, The Fallen Princefeels like an authentic and vibrant ride through a gritty scorched-earth style adventure.” ~ Jet Black Ink
“The book showed pieces of the best but also of the worst of humanity, making it so much more than ‘just’ a YA scifi book. Also, the world-building was the perfect blend of technology, scifi and fantasy. While there weren’t any dragging parts in the book, the first half of the book was still very predictable and foreseeable. However, the questions that were raised throughout the book — how far can science go? What makes a human human? — make up for the little ‘flaws’ in the story, adding a deeper meaning to the whole story. If you are looking for a book that is one of its kind, this one is for you.” ~ Cosmic Book Love
