    Interesting, atypical fantasy

    One of the things I enjoy the most about Fiona Mcintosh is that she doesn't write typical fantasy. She is about two points off center, and that makes her stories much more interesting.

    The Goddess follows that pattern, right down to the ending. While Ana is not on stage as much as in the previous books, her role as mother-to-be drives the entire story. Conspiracies riot throughout as Zar Boaz, Lazar, and Maliz run off to rescue Ana, each for their own reasons. Meanwhile, Herezah, Boaz's mother, has to contend with her own treacherous allies, who, through a failed assassination attempt, puts two countries at war with each other. Throw in an ancient cycle of betrayal and death between a demon and a goddess, and things get quite messy.

    The ending, however, is quite the surprise. Things don't turn out quite the way anyone expects them to, and for that, the story world is grateful. The story ends in a perfectly suited whisper, one that ties up all the remaining threads and leaves the reader satisfied.

    Make sure to read the first two books; The Goddess really does require all that context to make sense.

    an interesting ending to a strong trilogy

    Religious fanatic Aranfanz holds captive in his desert fortress pregnant Zaradine Ana because he believes Percheron¿s leader Zar Boaz is the father of the unborn. Aranfanz plans to use the heir as a pawn.------------ Ana wonders if her beloved Prince Lucien of Galinsea, known in Percheron as Spur Lazar, is the father. However, her biggest concern is for her child wheile she remains incarcerated by the desert warriors. Meanwhile her spouse Zar and her beloved Luicen obtain the help of shapeshifting demigod Iridor in their quest to find and free Ana at a time when their two nations turn to war and Maliz the demon in human guise as the grand vizier tries to prevent their success.------------- The final Percheron tale (see ODALISQUE and EMISSARY) is an interesting ending to a strong trilogy though this entry is not quite as engaging as the previous pair is as it takes too long to move into confrontational mode. The key cast remains solid characters as Zar obsesses over Ana to the point that he leaves his country at risk from the sea to mount a desert rescue of her. Although newcomers must read the rpevious books to comprhened what is going on in GODDESS, Fiona McIntosh closes her saga on a fine note.---------- Harriet Klausner
