The galaxy is under siege from alien invaders. An Empire holds back the advancing hoards but it is a society that is becoming increasingly totalitarian.

Amidst this chaos of war and political intrigue, a man seeks to survive.
Adrian Stannis is a brilliant scientist trying to stay out of the limelight, but his knowledge and intelligence make him a valuable commodity in the fight against the invaders. The Empire follows his struggle against the backdrop of war and rebellion. It explores human frailty and strength, and the journey of a man whose greatest wish is to be left alone, but who increasingly finds that he can't live without his friends. The story is about the personal battles, the psychological twists that are used to ensnare this stubborn man, and his growing relationship with Kali, the woman who was assigned as his consort.

The Empire is the first in 3 book series that explores what it means to live in a world where moral and political compromise is a pressing issue in the face of enemies intent on destroying humanity. At the beginning, The Empire was not intended to be a science fiction romance, but the relationship between Adrian and Kali became an important part of the book, providing the beating heart amidst the chaos.

Feather Quill Book Reviews says:

Not your regular science fiction, this author has managed to create a story with so many twists and turns that there are times when the evil beings that you've come to hate, end up working for the side that you love. No matter what the character's rank there is always someone higher up on the ladder of success that is brought in to knock them down a rung or two, leading the reader to turn every page so that they can continue a remarkable journey that never surrenders. And the end? Well...this is a series, readers, so the end will leave you wanting to throw the book across the room because the story was SO good that you absolutely NEED to know what's going to happen next!

This is a breathless, roller-coaster ride of romance, mystery, intrigue, and a battle between characters that you simultaneously love and hate. Elizabeth Lang has created a series that will make every reader watch Amazon, hoping that Book II's publication will be announced very, very soon.
