The Last Imperator (Paperback)
How much will she sacrifice for peace?
After six months of campaigning, Rei and the other Volocio have barely convinced half the star cluster to vote for the Federation.
Activist groups from all sides are calling for a war Rei is destined to declare, but she won't do it. While she wants to kill the Dominion Sovereign - Anekris Praymer - she wants to destroy him herself. She can channel lightning - she is the god queen - she doesn't need more than that and the whole star cluster doesn't need to go to war for it.
But tensions are rising beyond both their control and when both Rei and Anekris are trapped together after an attack - they strike up an uneasy alliance.
As time progresses, Rei finds herself wondering - will they remain enemies or will they join together and finally unite the Federation and Dominion?
