Honestly, I choose this book because I had no clue as what a “space opera” was… Something cool, apparently!
So, here we are with Princess of Draga by Emma Dean (Draga Court, #1), an Adult, Fantasy, Romance, Science Fiction.
In the first book of the Draga Court series, Princess Adelina’s coming-of-age party will declare to the worlds she is finally eligible to wed. All she wants is to serve her people and the crown with honor, but when a dangerously attractive prince from another galaxy – one who they all thought was dead – arrives with warnings of monstrosities and war, will her feelings put her in a position where she has to choose between her people and love?
The Draga Court series is a beautiful combination of fantasy and space opera set in a faraway future where humans have altered their genetics to save their species from their destructive natures. Dominance and rank weave a complicated dance among the galaxy’s society where a true submissive has to find her place, and learn the true meaning of power and love.
And here’s what Emma tells us about the Series.
In my bio I wrote that I love romance but needed something different, and here’s why.
Anyone who’s read Draga Court could tell you that it’s different from most standard romance. It’s long and fantasy-esque but set with a space backdrop much like Star Wars or Dune.
I was reading through romance books and just didn’t feel this connection with the books that I was looking for. I’ve found it a few times, but it’s few and far between. A Court of Thorns and Roses, The Black Jewels Trilogy, and Kushiel’s Dart were what inspired me to write this. I wanted Game of Thrones but with a happy ending and not as many people dying. But space is so much more fun, so that’s where I set it so I could play with the blending of advanced tech and fantasy.
It’s been so incredibly fun to write and to show strong women in different rolls with different strengths. It’s also been a challenge to keep track of everything and make sure Adelina has been growing in the right direction. After just finishing the fourth book and gearing up to write the fifth I have to say I’m quite proud of her and this story. I can’t wait to see how it ends.
This is a Tour, so all you have to do to know more about the Author or the Book is follow this link:
Emma Dean lives and works in California with her husband and son. She loves romance but needed something different so Draga Court was born. With too many stories to write the schedule has been filled through 2018.
When she’s not writing she’s reading, or spending time with her family. With publishing now at least she has an excuse for not folding the laundry 😉
