Three royal houses ruling three interplanetary systems are on the brink of collapse, and they must either ally together or tear each other apart in order for their people to survive.
Asa is the youngest daughter of the house of Fane, which has been fighting a devastating food and energy crisis for far too long. She thinks she can save her family’s livelihood by posing as her oldest sister in an arranged marriage with Eagle, the heir to the throne of the house of Westlet. The appearance of her mother, a traitor who defected to the house of Galton, adds fuel to the fire, while Asa also tries to save her sister Wren's life . . . possibly from the hands of their own father.
But as Asa and Eagle forge a genuine bond, will secrets from the past and the urgent needs of their people in the present keep them divided?
Inherit the Stars follows a girl named Asa who is the youngest in the Fane house. Her sister, Wren, ends up being badly injured. Asa’s father ends up agreeing to the Westlet House that his oldest daughter can marry their oldest daughter, and that would actually be Wren, though in this case it would be the middle daughter, Emmie. Asa’s father basically said he’d pull the plug, and Asa can’t handle that, because Wren seems to be showing signs of getting better. Long story short, Asa ends up pulling a huge stunt and marries Eagle, who is the heir to to the Westlet House without anyone’s knowledge until the wedding is over. She now has to keep up looks and follow everything the Westlets say in order for her House and civilians to get enough food to survive.
