In return, Arissa must join him on a dangerous mission and use her telepathic abilities to help him uncover hidden forces that threaten the Tellaran Realm.
Jolar will do whatever it takes to clear his life debt to Arissa. The only thing he absolutely cannot let himself do is fall in love with her . . .

About the Author
Ariel MacArran has loved books and writing since childhood. Growing up in New York City, her first self-published works (at 5) were made with construction paper and yarn and featured original stories and illustrations by the author. She holds a degree in English and a Masters in Counseling. Ariel lives in Charleston, South Carolina with her family.
I didn't really know what to expect from this book. From the synopsis I thought I would like it, but sometimes synopses are miss leading. This one however is pretty straight forward and gives a great over view of the story.
There is some great dry humor in this read which I love. Arissa is a wonderful character and I love how she grows and develops throughout the book. Jolar is equally intriguing and has his own self discovery path he is on. Written from both points of view so you really get to know these characters. MacArran creates a very life like world that had me hooked. A few twist and turns along the way that kept me on my toes and I loved it.
