Some days I wake up and can’t believe that I’m on Sel’Ani.

I can’t believe that I’m here and that I’ve fallen in love with the man from my dreams. I can’t believe that I said yes to marrying him and becoming the High Queen of the Aunare. I want to stay in bed with him all day where we’re safe from everything else that’s happening, but saying yes and being in love with Lorne didn’t make all our problems disappear.

The Aunare don’t understand what SpaceTech is capable of.

They don’t understand what happened on Earth thirteen years ago. They don’t understand who I am and why anyone—especially their High King—thinks I should rule.

When they question what happened, what I lived through, all the horrors of Liberation Week—I want to scream at them until they realize how blind and ignorant they’ve been, but I can’t. I can’t let my anger and frustration take over. They don’t understand what happened, and I need to find a way to make them understand.

The war with SpaceTech isn’t coming. It’s already here. And we are losing.

I might not be the High Queen they wanted, but if we want to win this war with SpaceTech, I’m the one they need.

From Aileen Erin, the USA Today Bestselling Author of the Alpha Girl series, comes an epic adventure in space: The Aunare Chronicles!

Book1: Off Planet
Book 2: Off Balance

“I loved having a story just focusing on Amihanna and Lorne. They are my OTP after all!...There was great development in their relationship and a lot of personal growth from Amihanna, after she's been through so much already.” - Haley, the Caffeinated Reader

“The Aunare series has become my favorite series that has not been completed yet and is definitely up there in my favorites of all time. There is interesting worldbuilding, amazing characters, relationship and character development that are perfectly crafted, and prose that sings to you.” - Kasey, Bookish Corner

”Aileen Erin's books are to me as melon candy is to Amihanna - addicting.” - Lenni, Lenniland

“I've loved this series from the beginning and this novella was a special treat!” - Sheila K, Goodreads

About the Author

USA Today bestselling author Aileen Erin is half-Irish, half-Mexican, and 100% nerd—from Star Wars (prequels don’t count) to Star Trek (TNG FTW). She geeks out on Tolkien's linguistics, and has a severe fascination with the supernatural. Aileen has a BS in Radio-TV-Film from the University of Texas at Austin, and an MFA in Writing Popular Fiction from Seton Hill University. She lives with her husband and daughter in Los Angeles, and spends her days doing her favorite things: reading books, creating worlds, and kicking ass.

Aileen is excited for two new releases in her four-part YA space opera series Aunare Chronicles in 2020, starting with Off Balance. After thirteen years fighting for survival, Amihanna di Aetes thought that she’d finally be safe on her father’s homeworld. But with Aunare blaming her for starting a war, everything is as far from okay as it could be. Her only respite from the chaos and pressures of her new life is Lorne ni Taure—the crown prince of the Aunare, her betrothed. He wants her to take her place at his side. To fight in the war with him. But why would she risk her life for people who want her dead?

She is also the author of the hugely popular werewolf YA Alpha Girl series, which has sold more than 500,000 copies:
Book 1: Becoming Alpha
Book 2: Avoiding Alpha
Book 3: Alpha Divided
Book 4: Bruja
Book 5: Alpha Unleashed
Book 6: Shattered Pack
Book 7: Being Alpha
Book 8: Lunar Court
Book 9: Alpha Erased

Her fans call her stories "jaw dropping," "electrifying," "amazing," and "bloody brilliant." Bloggers say "Erin's world-building is excellent and her characters are big and bold"(Escape Into Worlds) and every book is "a magnet that just keeps pulling until you feel as if you are falling down, down, down right into its world" (Tempest of Books). Aileen Erin is the founder and CEO of Ink Monster, building worlds filled with girl power and happily ever afters. You can find her at or on Instagram @aileenerin.
