Interview with Rebel Miller
Why did you write this book?
This question always stumps me! I think the reason is because the story had been percolating in my mind over a number of months, demanding that I write it.
I envisioned developing a New Adult romance that was set against an intensely dramatic backdrop and was unexpected in every way, yet would still resonate with readers of the genre – whether lovers of contemporary or futuristic settings. For me, that meant creating a world set hundreds of years in the future where I could challenge the female lead, Kira Metallurgist, in her assumptions about her social class, identity, sexuality and what it means to be in love. As Kira starts out on her career path and finds herself in a tangled love triangle, I include a lot of thematic notes that readers will be able to identify with while enjoying her out of this world journey.
What is your favorite genre to read?
Hmmm. Well … let me think. LOL. Anything romance, of course! I also love thrillers/suspense. Having now started on my third book and plotting for future novels, I can see where my reading preferences are coming through my work!
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
There are so many! All right, if I must choose, the character that first comes to mind is David Strorm from The Chrysalids by John Wyndham. I love this book so much that I referenced it in my first novel, Awakening. While it isn’t a romance, the story has stayed with me since I first read it for English Literature class in high school. In fact, I have a copy on my bedside table right now!
What are you working on at the moment, and will see from you in coming months?
I’m well into writing the final book in The Realm Series, which will be the final instalment in Kira’s story. In this novel, I place Kira in even more challenging and emotional situations. She’ll be confronting a lot of her secrets and fears and, of course, make a decision on who to be with – whether Gannon or Tai ... or, hey, maybe she’ll end up with both! I’m excited to see how it all works out!
After that, I head right into writing my first stand-alone novel. It will be a contemporary romance (suspense). Following this story, I’ll head back into The Realm Series, but writing the story for Liandra Ambassador who we first meet in Awakening. Stay tuned for details!

Promising, the riveting follow-up to Awakening by Rebel Miller.
Faced with diverging loyalties — between those she loves and her responsibility to the Realm — Kira has to make heartrending and strategic decisions that threaten to jeopardize her future.
As her connection to Tai deepens and turmoil in the Realm builds, so does Gannon’s frustration at being unable to call Kira his own.
Worlds at War ... A Heart in Conflict
While the Realm stands defiant amidst rising unrest, Kira is thrust into a role that puts her at the forefront of her system’s governance and law, supporting a landmark position. Following a devastating turn of events, she turns to Tai for a shoulder to lean on after making a painful choice to ensure Gannon fulfils the role he was meant for.
As she becomes a reluctant - yet inspiring - voice for her caste, Kira learns about one of the Realm’s most well-kept secrets and how far leadership will go to prevent it from being revealed. What she doesn’t know is how much the decisions of her past have the power to bring enemies into her path, threatening to destroy everyone she holds close to her heart.
