Scholarship student Thracius “Tracy” Belmanor and Princess Mercedes de Arango have graduated from the High Ground and become officers in the Orden de la Estrella. Stung by Mercedes’ choice of Beauregard “Boho” Cullen as her consort, Tracy is glad that they are posted on battleships light years apart, but soon finds that without her protection he is nothing but a target. Meanwhile, Mercedes’ posting has its own challenges, not least her unfaithful husband.
Both young officers find themselves part of forced “assimilations” of settlers on Hidden Worlds, which lead them to doubt the intentions of the Solar League. And when Tracy witnesses an horrific event that threatens the fragile human and alien peace, Mercedes must decide where her loyalties truly lie...

In Evil Times (Imperials, #2) by Melinda M. Snodgrass Melinda Snodgrass is an amazing author. She takes a reader through a world that becomes all consuming. The readers connection to the characters is the defining feature of her writing. In Evil Times is the second book in the Imperials series. When I began reading it I told my students that the key characters were friends, and I wanted to see if they reconnect. My disillusioned middle school students comment "just friends" no one in books is just friends. I know that in the first book Princess Mercedes and Tracy had kissed, but their division because of the society bias of imperialism made a relationship impossible. They are forced by convention to have gone different paths, and their careers made it impossible for them to work together. What Melinda weaves into her story is that these two characters are only better together. They can solve the Empires problems best only together. This book shows that the test of their lives is the proof that they are better together. The reader is able to see what the characters keep trying to not accept. I am impatient for the final story, I need to see if the characters figure out what we all know. This book will pull at your heart strings, and has one of the best cliff hangers you will find in current books. Keep the story coming Melinda.
