A tragic love story.

Two thousand years before Dez Harkly developed her secret powers, Guardian Astarte was vowed to protect by the binds enslaving her to the Egyptian pharaohs. Discover the prophecy that originated from a very different time, and spans generations to link two very different girls.

This is the beginning.

Set against the backdrop of the Battle of Actium, in the city of Alexandria, Star struggles with her guardian duties as her feelings for the newly named pharaoh of Egypt grow deeper. Not only is Caesarion her duty, he’s the son of Cleopatra, and he’s human. All of which makes their love forbidden.

But when a conspiracy linked to Caesar creeps into Alexandria, Star must choose between helping her fellow Kythan free themselves of their servitude, and protecting her charge—the last pharaoh—while Egypt burns around her.

New Adult/Mature YA: sexual content, drinking, drugs, violence, language, death, and other mature content intended for readers 17 and older. Astarte's Wrath is a companion novel to Destiny's Fire, but can be read as a standalone novel. {Goodreads}
  Wow wow WOW!!!!! She has done it! Trisha Wolfe has managed to blow my mind and both capture and break my heart. I fell in love with Trisha Wolfes writing and stories when I read her first book in this companionship, Destinys Fire. One of the best steam punk books I have ever read! I wasn't really sure where it was going when she offered me to join this event. It was mainly the cover that through me off. It was all Egyptian an I was confused. I had completely forgot the main important things from Destinys Fire!!!! I seriously need to reread it now.

  Now even though I was confused at first it quickly explained the Kythan things I had forgotten and I was so hooked on Astartes Wrath I didn't want to put it down until I finished and I didn't. I happen to be a huge fan of the Egyptian times and Cleopatra. And even bigger a fan of Egyptian times DURING Cleopatras reign xD I can imagine how much research Wolfe had to do to finish this book. And may I just say that she did a flipping fantastic job!! She truly caught the time and culture perfectly. I am no history major of that time but everything she wrote gave enough to make you feel you were really there. She captured the Greek tragedy perfectly. Too perfectly might add *cries hysterically*

  Astarte, Phoenix, Xarion....all the characters she created were wonderful. Even the bad guys. I really don't know how else to build this book up!! I'm at a loss of words for the amount of amazing Astartes Wrath contains! It was action packed. The first scene we open up to is a battle. There was tragedy interlaced to no end. There was romance like no other. Friendship. Loyalty. Betrayal. And it's the story of how it all started. I love this book to no end. Seriously I have no clue how else to express how great this book. From the characters to the writing to the plot to well everything. Every once of this book was wonderful. It had be heart broken to no end and full of joy at the same time. If you haven't read this series do so as soon as possible ok? Thank you so much Trisha for giving me a chance to read your genius!! ;D
