Publisher's Summary

Emperor Wray Vasteri was the ruler of the Tornian Empire. His house had ruled the empire ever since the great infection, which struck over 500 years ago, and he feared he would be the last. The number of compatible females was dwindling faster than anyone knew. If they could not find compatible females soon, their entire civilization would cease to exist. It was the reason he agreed to meet with Liron, the emperor of the Kaliszian Empire in Kaliszian space. It was the only reason they had crossed paths with a Ganglian ship leaving Tornian space, and it was the only reason that the small female was discovered. Could she be what they had been searching for?
Wray found himself drawn to the small female he'd found beaten and abused on the Ganglian ship. She resembled a Tornian female but was much smaller. Could she be what he had been searching for?
Kim Teel has had a hard life - at least she thought she had until her parents were suddenly killed, and then her sister and brother-in-law disappeared. At 19 she realized she'd been protected from all of life's hardships. She had been cared for and loved her entire life and had come to expect it. She was terribly spoiled. Determined to change her ways, Kim went looking for her sister, only to be captured by the Ganglians, and it was then she learned what happened to the unprotected females of the universe.
Wray and Kim are both doing the same thing - trying to survive. But what they find is that there are more important things than just survival. And once they learn that, the universe changes forever.

Why can't all books be this 'Audible'???!!

I love the stories and all the voice actors. I listened to Grimm 80 billion times. M.K.E is awesome!!!!! I can't wait for the next book. If depicted like this Ynyr (which I read on Kindle & will still buy the Audible for) and Oryon will be great. Great story from a true writer. Love it!!!!

AUDIBLE - PLEASE GET ALL THE BOOKS IN THIS SERIES!

At first I was a little let down by this book....I think "Grim" is a little better then "Wray". But then I realized that both books are good, they were just released in the wrong order. Grim is the continuation of the Tornians story, were Wray is the beginning of the story. In Wray we get some of the answers that were left open in Grim.

Wray finds Kim on a slaver's ship when he is on is way home from a meeting with another emperor. She has been beaten, abused, and nearly dead. While taking her back to his ship for more medical treatment, their shuttle is shot down and they crash on a small planet and before they can be rescued, a fierce storm sets in and they are trapped in a cave until the storm passes. So their story begins. While they are trapped in the cave, Wray explains some of the history of his people to Kim and she tells Wray about her family and her dog Warrior. The only thing Wray doesn't tell her is that he is the emperor and it nearly costs him Kim's trust and love. I won't go any further, because I always hate review that give the whole book away. I'll just add that I love the parts were the Great Goddess interacts with both Kim and Wray.

M K Eidem has a great series going with these books and I truly hope Audible gets the rest of them. I enjoy the background sound effect, the people and the worlds he has created. I am also glad they use both male and female narrators, since few narrators can do both parts and to them well.

I hope you enjoy this series as much as I do and now I have to wait for the next book to come out.

Good One

Any additional comments?

Good story, I am not sure that this shouldn't have been the first book in the series.
The story is somewhat similar to 'Grimm' the first Tornians Book.

There were six narrators in this recording but only two for Grimm and I prefered the 'Grimm' narration.

The story consists of a dying race in need of females and the power struggles that occur inside the race. I feel the female taken from Earth is a great deal more forgiving than I would be.

Love love love!

I enjoyed the reading of this novel, and loved the different voices representing the different characters!
It breaks the conversations from the beautifully read narrative in a way that lends itself perfectly to my being able to see events in my head unfold as I listen. This gave me the same experience of the story as I get when I am reading it for myself! Top notch performances!

Heart wrenching with a happy ending

Love Wray and Kim's story it's compelling, addictive and heartwarming (in the end) thanks M K Eidem but please write a story about Callen as well. I have read the digital copy of this book a few times already but i will never get enough of the hot Tornian Warriors and our feisty beautiful earthlings :) thanks for the narrative it's excellent (why so many voices) but all good thanks again xxx
