    I Also Recommend:

    The Night Bird is the tale of a young woman captured in an alternate universe and forced into a culture that she can not imagine or cope with. Escape seems hard, but doable, until her heart is ensnared by the very man that she is sold to.

    This a romantic tale with a twisting plot of political intrigue, and personal conflicts that shade the lines of black and white until everything can no longer be distinguished. A young woman who will be lost in the turmoil of what she doesn't understand, a Prince who can not abandon his duty, even as his heart pleads, a devil of a general who possesses such cruelty that it can never be matched, a young King in waiting with a kind heart slowly being corrupted by politics, and joined by a host of other characters, royal and otherwise, this tale is rife with every emotion that a person can possibly think of. Asaro has blended modernism, science, and the past into an intricate world that couldn't possibly exist, even though for a moment she just may fool you. Her characters are believable and complicated, often dealing with the basics of human feeling and heart ache. She touches base with the importance of duty and what it may cost. I found this story rather enjoyable. It is well put, interesting, and flows from page to page with ease. The details and lives lived were not only thorough, but completely engaging. It made me want to visit this secret world that was lost long ago. Then again maybe I already have... The mind can take you anywhere and I recommend that you allow it to be swirled into Catherine Asaros story. Not only will it leave you without disappointment, it will have you on tether hooks for the next availablle novel. Enjoy!!!

    Catherine Asaro doesn't disappoint!

    I have been completely in love with Asaro's stories since I read 'The Charmed Sphere' and I am always afraid that she could not possibly come out with another book that could compare to the greatness of the last, but she does it again! I have to say that my favorite still is, and probably always will be 'The Dawn Star', but this book is incredibly addicting nonetheless. Asaro brings all of the characters from all of her past books together and throws a new spin on the story by telling it from the side of the House of Onyx. This book will keep you on the edge of your seat from start to finish, and thankfully leaves plenty of room for more books to come!

    spellbinding romantic fantasy

    Student mage Allegra was on her way to receive training when she was abducted by desert raiders who plan on selling her as a sex slave her golden hair they assume will make them quite of bit of money. In Jazid, ruthless General Yargazon and outlawed Prince Regent Markus Onyx bid on Allegra the latter wins the slave. --- However, Allegra is not a docile native female willing to sit idly by while men do whatever they want to her. She intends on escaping but understands the difficulty in a society in which women are by law cattle.. As she plots her freedom, Alegra is attracted to her owner and him to her. However, her hope for escape relies on her untrained mage skills while the General sets in motion a scheme that will gain him power by plunging the region into a large scale war. --- What makes this romantic fantasy spellbinding for fans of Catherine Asaro¿s Lost Continent saga (see THE FIRE OPAL AND THE MISTED CLIFFS) is the incredibly deep look at the male dominated Jazid culture. Thus being a female makes it that much more difficult for Alegra to escape as being a woman means legally you just don¿t wander around. Although the general is a stereotypical Macbeth-like antagonist with ambitions to be the ruling despot and no scruples, readers will enjoy the delightful taboo romance in a fantasy realm in which allies are apt to back stab you rather than watch your back. --- Harriet Klausner
