Prince Galian is third in line to the throne, but prefers his place as a resident at the Royal Kylaen Hospital. When his father urges him to join the military to help reclaim their colony, Galian is forced to put aside his oath to Do No Harm and fight a war he does not believe in.

Across the great Madion Sea, Captain Theo Kallistrate dreams of a day when she is no longer bound by conscription to fight for her country’s independence. But when the Kylaens threaten, honor and duty call her to the front lines to fight off the oppressors.

When an air skirmish goes wrong, both Theo and Galian crash on a remote island hundreds of miles from either nation. Grievously injured, Theo must rely on Galian’s medical expertise, and Galian must rely on Theo’s survival skills, to live another day in a harsh and unforgiving terrain.

Can they put aside their differences long enough to survive? Or will the war that brought them to the island tear them apart?

The Island is the first in a new romance trilogy by S. Usher Evans, author of the Razia series and Empath.

I got three reasons why I’m super excited for this book. Number one LOOK AT THAT COVER. LOOK AT IT. It’s creepy and haunting, and yet looks awesome.

Second reason READ THAT DESCRIPTION, SERIOUSLY. C’mon this screams ship them already.

Now just tell me how amazing this sounds, okay? Exactly. It sounds that good. Like dude give me this book already.

Okay now my third reason is because Evans is like one of the sweetest kindest people I’ve had the pleasure of meeting, and I absolutely cannot wait to sink into this novel.
