Product description

Product Description

When the luxury spaceliner carrying Crown Princess Cerelia is attacked by space pirates, she is forced to flee for her life in the company of the ship's captain, Jefferson Rydel. Having left behind her home and family forever to marry the man she has selected to succeed her father as Emperor, her disappearance throws the Imperial succession into question and destabilizes the Empire.

As she struggles to adapt to a harsh environment so unlike the comfortable world she has always known, she discovers again and again that Captain Rydel is not what she thought he was. Has he really uncovered the secret of Earth, its location lost in the passage of time and regarded by most as a myth? Or is he nothing but an unprincipled charlatan exploiting the hopes of millions?

Whoever he is, she has no choice but to accept his help. As they fight to stay ahead of the forces trying so desperately to kill her, and to stop the plot against the Imperial throne, she begins to wonder if she has found what she always longed for but never believed she would find--a man she can truly love without turning her back on the duty she was born to fulfill...

It has been a long time since I last read any space opera. Having enjoyed D.A. Hill's other novels I was keen to read this one even though it was of a different style to his others. It turned out to be a rollicking good read. Fast paced and with enough depth to keep me engaged throughout.
If you’re looking for an entertaining read that is different from the usual fare I'd highly recommend this book. Great story well told.

I loved D.A. Hill's new book but now I can't sleep. My wife won't turn out the light until she has finished it too! A great read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Uneven but riveting 28 March 2017
By history repeats - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
The author says about this book that he is "not entirely sure if Cerelia's Choice is a space opera inside a romance, or a romance inside a space opera." Well, this avid science fiction romance reader is here to say that it is a romance inside of a space opera. The science is fascinating and absorbing, the love story evolves, but the romance leaves something to be desired.

The beginning of this book lures you in with the promise of a noble wedding interrupted by a pirate raid. The practical details of living and traveling in space get their due in this book. Maybe heavy sci-fi readers won't be as impressed, but I was riveted by the thought that went into details of how to move about ships and space stations and how to get down to planets. The strategy that goes into how to get goods and raw materials through space and to planet-side consumers was remarkable. Who would have thought space commerce would be so interesting? Regardless, it was important to the plot, but telling you why will spoil the story, so I won't. As the book goes on, the details get more and more clever and interwoven, opening the possibilities for story directions. It certainly kept me turning the pages.

This is a colonization story and a space opera and a book of exploration and political betrayal. There is a lot going on behind the scenes. Just like Princess Cerelia, I was surprised at the facets revealed in Captain Jefferson Rydel. Clearly, they are the ones bound to fall in love, but the romance takes its sweet time to get going, and in my opinion, never really gets hot. The romantic scenes just didn't have much finesse. Weirdly, I believed the love, mainly because that is where the narrative told me to go, but I didn't believe the romance.

Jefferson is complicated. I found him to be idealistic, smart, practical and sometimes really stupid. It's not too often that I get a TSTL (too stupid to live) vibe from the male protagonist, but Jefferson pulled a couple in this book. Granted, he was a fish out of water in several instances. There were also some big blanks as regarded his duties that I felt the author just let slide; developing these aspects would have made for a richer character.

Cerelia is complicated, too. Fortunately, she gets a lot more room for growth. I liked her natural curiosity and how she seemed to bloom without the strictures of her position. Going incognito was a revelation for her, and her experiences mean a future change for her personally as well as her empire. My eye were opened to the same injustices. This part of the world-building gets just the right amount of explanation. Given the rich detail through the rest of the novel, I felt the ending was skimpy. My expectations were higher, and it impacted my overall assessment of the book, leaving me with a feeling that the story was uneven.

5.0 out of 5 stars Suspenseful Sci-fy Romance with a Strong Heroine 7 April 2017
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
A compelling romance set against a sci-fy backdrop that's believable, yet not overly technical. I especially appreciated the heroine, Cerelia. It's so refreshing to encounter a female protagonist in a romance who's not dependent and whiny, but rather smart, assertive, and wholly able to take care of herself--and the hero! The alternating point of views throughout keep the story moving and avoid the one-sided, melodramatic pining that's so typical in the genre. A great, quick read, recommended for anyone who's a fan of sci-fy or romance, or anyone who just loves a gripping story that will keep you up all night!
5.0 out of 5 stars The Forces Against Happily Ever After 26 January 2016
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I'd like to say “Good on Ya,” to Aussie Author, D.A. Hill for writing another book that despite being outside of my normal realm of reading genres, I read his publication Cerelia's Choice engrossed from beginning to end. And I really enjoyed it too, I might add! The turns in the plot came often enough to keep me moving forward wondering what was going to happen next.

So as not to be the spoiler, I'll refrain from giving you too much information about Hill's first foray into an interesting genre of writing – space romance. But, I will say, “Oh, how I rooted that the chosen next ruler of the Imperial Throne could defend against the forces in the Galactic Empire so the princess could live happily ever after.”
