i love this book, the romance is really good, although it is a bit corny how everyone ends up paried off at the end, but who cares it's a romance right?! there's an interesting plot and i love how Asaro describes the magic. Definately worth a read!

    THE BEST YET!

    This book was AMAZING! I fell in love with the series when I read The charmed Sphere and have been completely hooked ever since. Asaro takes the magecraft, plotting and stradegy between countries, and romance to a whole new level in The Dawn Star. Absolutely FANTASTIC! Highly recomended.

    A spellbinding romantic fantasy

    Cobalt the Dark married Mel Dawnfield so that Harsdown would eventually return to Cobalt¿s heirs because it is part of his wife¿s dowry. What began as a marriage of state quickly became a love match. He conquered Sharize and Blue Shire and is heir to the Misted Cliffs, ruled by his abusive grandfather Stonebreaker who made his and his mother¿s life miserable as a child.--------------------- Cobalt would love to add Jazid and Taka Mal to his empire but Mel doesn¿t want her husband to become the dictator of the world. The country of Taka Mal, fearing Cobalt¿s expansionist ideas, kidnap the queen of Aronsdale¿s brother Drummer, Mel¿s uncle and a minstrel with a voice that could make grown men weep for joy. The ruling queen Jade quickly falls under Drummer¿s spell and wants to marry him because Cobalt would never call out his wife¿s family. Before that plan could be put into motion, Mel is kidnapped and it is made to look like Taka Mal performed the deed. Cobalt marches towards Taka Mal intending to level it unless Mel can escape her prison and explain the truth to her beloved.--------------------- Nebula award winner Catherine Asaro writes spellbinding romantic fantasy as well as she does hard science fiction. Fans of her Skollan empire series will find THE DAWN STAR a softer, more people driven tale with characters well suited for this sword and sorcery tale. Although there are plenty of action scenes, the plot is more about political chicanery and the political intrigue scenes are fascinating.------------------- Harriet Klausner
