Blog Tour: Align Ourselves by Adriana Schuh

Hi everyone! We have something exciting for you here on the blog today -- we were lucky enough to be invited to the blog tour for ALIGN OURSELVES, hosted by Skye Book Tours, so we're here today sharing an excerpt for you all. So without further ado, let's get into it!


Title: Align Ourselves
Authors: Adrianna Schuh
Genre: New Adult Fantasy Romance
Publication Date: January 14th, 2021 (Out now!)

 Summary: Lex wants an alliance for his kingdom. Aria wants a safe place for her people to call home. Neither one wants to be married. But when Aria's own people threaten the kingdom, she realizes that Lex is the man she's always wanted. And she'll do anything to save him.


Aria blinked into the bright light of day and stared into the face of a man she assumed was the leader of these people. His face was harsh, his eyes dark and cold. She knew she would find no sympathy with him. 

“Are you the leader?" he asked. His face had a hard look to it. Like he had seen one too many difficult things in life. 

Aria nodded, almost afraid to admit it. At only 18 years old, so much responsibility had been placed on her shoulders.
Twenty-five of them came up together. Up from their home underground, where their people had lived for 100 years. War, devastation, and radiation. This is why they’d fled. This is what they had prepared for, a safe home underground. With all the technology, they could manage to save. But now, they were running out of food, no longer able to sustain their life underground. So her people sent them. A group of young adults, kids really Because they were “non-essential.” 

In an area of what used to be the Midwestern United States, they ventured out to see what was left of the Earth. And they found people. They found people that had somehow survived and were not receptive to strangers showing up on their land.

The Terra they called themselves, people of the Earth. And they did not want to listen. They didn’t let Aria explain the history of her people, that they had survived below the ground, and that she and the 24 others were forced to go up, explore, and report back. There was little time to marvel over being above the ground for the first time. Little time to admire the clear blue sky and the beautiful trees. Little time to relish the sun on their faces and the wind in their hair. 

Instead, the Terra captured them, holding them prisoner for what seemed like an endless amount of time. All 25 of them were forced into a small dirty room. They were given only bread and water to subsist on while the Terra decided what to do with them. Aria tried to keep track of the days by marking the walls; by the time the Terra had decided, 14 days had come and gone. 

She wasn’t sure how it happened, but over time the other 24 people began looking to her when trying to figure out what to do. Maybe because she was always trying to make sure everyone else was OK. Perhaps it was because of who she used to be below the ground. She’d been a teacher’s assistant, so many people knew her face. They trusted her. 

"And what is your name,” the man asked, sounding bored.
