Get “Coup” on Amazon here.
Living under the tyranny of the Galvadi Empire is torture, but Auren is determined to end the nightmare, regardless of the cost to herself.
Auren is once again a prisoner of the Galvadi on Nadiria, or at least that she wants Emperor Zavix to believe. It’s the only way to get close enough to him to kill him and then take control of the people.
To succeed in her mission, she must push her new power to the limit, but the more she uses her it, the more addictive it becomes. Unfortunately, stopping is not an option, but if she can focus on her goals, maybe she won’t lose herself.
And here’s a snippet:
A trooper who I assumed was Lieutenant Kego watched us warily as we entered the apartment. He didn’t say anything, but he was studying me as though he suspected I was up to something. As I slipped into his mind, I met a fierce resistance I hadn’t expected. I looked for the fear I thought might be the cause of his opposition, but instead, I found absolute loyalty.
I had to dig deeper, following the threads of his loyalty to sever them. I wasn’t sure if it would cause him harm, but it was necessary. I couldn’t feel remorse for those who brought suffering to others. It took more time than I expected, but I finally had him.
