Having gone from kidnapped faux princess to the legitimate heir to an intergalactic throne, an impulsive, sarcastic teen must take charge of her own destiny in this epic YA novel.
On Earth, Delaney is a normal teenager who recently graduated high school with a fantastic best friend and a loving boyfriend.
But Delaney isn’t on Earth. She’s on Xenith, a war-torn planet half a galaxy away. Originally mistaken for an alien princess, Delaney has gone from kidnapped imposter to the recognized heir to an alien throne. Oh, and she’s engaged to the prince of an enemy nation whose ruthless father is on the warpath.
Torn between two planets, two fates, and two loves, Delaney is finally ready to choose her own destiny in Within Ash and Stardust, the stunning conclusion to Chani Lynn Feener’s Xenith Trilogy.

“My job,” he protested, “ensured you ended up on this planet a second time.”
“No.” She shook her head and stepped toward him, frowning when he immediately retreated. “You were supposed to keep me alive, and you did that. You were supposed to help avert a war. And you did that. Anything that came after, Olena screwing up, Trystan figuring it out, the Rex taking over…you had nothing to do with any of it. It’s on them, Ruckus. Anything that isn’t here”—she waved a finger between his chest and hers—“is on someone else.”
He angled his head. “What does that even mean?”
“It means I was there, too, remember? I know you only did what you thought you had to. We didn’t really have any other options.”
“But…” He searched her face. “You’re angry?”
“Yes.” She was. That couldn’t be helped right now.
Because he hadn’t been up-front with her. Maybe if he had, nothing would have changed. Probably wouldn’t have, in fact. At the time, getting Uprisen was her best bet at avoiding more assassination attempts. It hadn’t worked, but that wasn’t his fault, either.
“Is that something we’re going to talk about?” he asked when she didn’t elaborate.
“You couldn’t have known how it was all going to go,” she said again. “From now on, promise you won’t leave anything out, no matter how unimportant or obsolete you think it could be. I need one hundred percent honest, Ruckus, at all times. Always.”
There was more to say, but she’d meant it before. They didn’t really have time for it, and neither of them were exactly in the right state of mind. He looked like he’d been awake for months, and when she saw her reflection, she didn’t look much better.
He eased his body as close to hers as he could, so that she could feel the heat of him. He had to be careful not to touch her with his hands, or let her still-goo-covered hair touch him, but that small bit of space somehow didn’t matter. The corner of his mouth turned up in a somewhat sad, yet reassuring smile.
