Blood Crown

(The first book in the Eden Project series)
A novel by

The human race will be destroyed by the very beings they created to protect them.

Archibald, Royal Servant of Serantha, Daughter of the West, has one mandate: Guide and protect Serantha. When the royal family is slain during a mutiny, Archibald sends the little girl down a garbage chute to save her life. For ten years Serantha is presumed dead, and Archibald has been forced to perform the drudgery of a mindless android. But deep in his programming he nurtures his one true purpose: Serantha lives, and he will find her.

Serantha has no memory of her privileged life as princess and heiress of her father's domain. She lives in the bowels of the royal ship as a kitchen slave, despised even among those with whom she serves. But when Sera is confronted with the cruelty of the Mind, the evolved androids who overcame the human race, Sera's identity is revealed and hiding in the kitchens is no longer an option.

Nicolai, Son of the West, has walked away from his crown, abandoning his family who refuse to acknowledge that the Mind will come for them next. The prophecies of an evolved human race died with Serantha and without their bond humanity has no hope of surviving, but Nicolai will not sit back and ignore the slow but steady demise of his race. He joins the revolutionaries of the West and there discovers a kitchen slave who might just be the one he'd long ago stopped hoping for.

*A sci-fi romance with a Cinderella twist*

"I've always loved Ali Cross's lyrical writing, but now she's taken a story to the stars and written a sci fi romance that is both intimate and epic. The question of man and machine and how the two will co-exist is one that I see sprouting many flavors of story in the years to come - Blood Crown is an intriguing addition to those imagined futures!" ~ Susan Kaye Quinn (Mindjack Trilogy, The Debt Collector)

"Blood Crown is filled with adventure, action, and romance. Love Nic and Sera. And Archibald. What I especially love is the world. One in which technology looks human and certain humans are interwoven with tech. It's so cool. A great read!" ~ RaShelle Workman, International bestselling author of the Immortal Essence series, the Blood and Snow series, and The Cindy Chronicles
