Overview

In her desperation to find Sabre and rescue him from Myon Two, Tassin boarded a smuggler ship that answered Tarl’s call for help, and she and Tarl have been abducted. Her royal status means nothing to their kidnappers, but her airs and graces pay off on the auction block, and she and Tarl are purchased by a self-styled emperor. Tarl’s skills as a cyber technician prove valuable to Emperor Endrovar, who owns cybers, but the emperor has no use for Tassin, and sells her.

The Queen’s new owner is a high king, ruler of fifteen solar systems, whose family has strange ties to Myon Two. She discovers an astounding revelation regarding Sabre’s origins, but is unable to persuade Tarvin to let her go.

When Sabre learns of Tassin’s abduction, despair overwhelms him, for she has vanished into the endless reaches of space, untraceable… lost. He is certain he will never find her again, and, although Fairen helps him to set out on his quest to seek her, he knows, deep in his heart, that it is hopeless. His machine-trained mind has calculated the odds and returned a decimal so small he does not want to count the zeroes in front of it.

Sabre has no hope, and he cannot cope with the host of human emotions her disappearance dumps into his mind – useless, illogical feelings that only bring him pain. Fate has dealt him a final, crushing blow, and he has lost the girl he loves just when he has finally become almost human…

So I just finished this book last night, having read the 8 preceding books. I found this series to be every bit as wonderful as the Queen's Blade series. I couldn't put either down, and felt bereft when I finished both, because these characters take on such a life of their own. As a writer, I am in awe of this author's talent. As a reader, I want to devour everything she has written. I have always loved being swept away to other worlds and times, and Southwell does it as well as any of the masters I've read, including Clarke and Asimov and Bradbury and Heinlein. If you are a connoiseur of fantasy and sci fi, once you sample Southwell's spread, you will find yourself wanting to come back for more!

I read these one after the other like gobbling favorite treat. The only thing that bugged me was the simpleton attitude everyone had concerning "Bad Guys". They just couldn't seem to get it through their heads! Psychos don't change. Kill them or put them in in max security for ever. Guess T.C. will have to consult some street people or real criminals to make her understand better how her characters should react to them. Might make her feel like Farien after judging a creep though, dirty. T.C. please don't stop writing about our two lovers. I'd love to see them enjoy some of their time and personal trials together. Maybe Tarl will even fall in love?

I enjoyed this book immensely. I'm so glad I found this wonderful author T.C. Southwell. What an awesome ending to a fantastic story, while leaving just enough cliff hanger to write book 10 of the series; if she so chooses.

I have been reading this series and have read all, but am left in the blue as to how the story is going to end. I would like to know when is there going to be more of this series released? I love the story and would love very much to read more.

I have enjoyed all of the books in this series. Yes, there are grammatical, spelling, and typographical errors, but it is free, so really cannot grouse.
