Overview

Four brand-new novellas, from the national bestselling author of the Sons of Destiny series.

The slave...Chanson, a privileged Arbran dyara, discovers an unexpected connection with the excitingly different Eduor, a bracingly sexy war-slave who desires his freedom.

The knight...The Arbran diplomat Sir Zeilas must turn the Guildaran people from former enemies into allies. But in the case of their intriguingly beautiful leader, perhaps something more intimate is in order.

The mage...Gabria never expected to become a Guildaran envoy to Aurul. But the most stunning surprise was what waited for her in His Majesty's winter palace-and why.

The pirate...Captain Ellett would do anything for his king-even hunt down the pirates plaguing the Jenodan Isles. But he never counted on the seductive powers of the pirate's captain-beautiful, tempestuous, and impossible to resist.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Four interconnected novellas, each named after a place, create a captivating fantasy world in this work by Johnson (Sons of Destiny). Although haunted by his abusive past, former war slave Eduor is relishing his freedom in "Sundara" and learning to trust again, thanks to a beguiling dyara (a magical watercaller) called Chanson. On a mission of peace to "Guildara," Araban Ambassador Sir Zelias becomes fascinated with their Chief Counsel, Marta, but between magical machines and a threat of war, falling in love may put both their careers at risk. Upon being sent to "Aurul," Gabria believed she was on a mission of unification, but after a prophecy and a marriage, she discovers a different means of unification. Travelling to the "Jenodan Islands," Captain Ellet investigates the current rash of pirate attacks on Aurulan ships. When confronted by the entrancing Captain Mita, he learns that vengeance is more than simple looting, encompassing the desires of his heart. Thoroughly romantic and entertaining, fans of Johnson's "Sons of Destiny" series will not want to miss this enchanting side trip. (Jan.)

    Interesting Read

    This book reminds me of a collection of short stories because it has different sections and starts from chapter one in every section. it is a new story in itself. The first starts with Sundaran and the Knight and the Sundaran finds his happiness, but the Knight continues on into the next section with his own story. It is an interesting read and thought it was very good.
    Ruul/Devin are creepy. I get that Devin is a Seer for Ruul, but a woman would like to have time with her husband alone. Despite what Devin says about being amazing in the bedroom when they are one,I do not agree with both being in bed. When Gabria became married, she told Ruul that she just wanted Devin in the room. She should have stuck with it or at least give them her permission to have Devin or both in the bedroom. It seems scary when one is wakened by a body that looks like her husband, but it is not him in spirit. Devin has enough on his plate when Ruul intervenes with prophecies out of nowhere. Devin and Gabria cannot be a normal couple or take a break from ruling and kick back a beer. Ruul hears/sees all, but the person inhabited by him needs some kind of freedom, not just a few hours during the morning/night/occupied elsewhere. To me, Devin is like a father who works all the time and never is around for his wife/children. Do not talk or spend time together. I hope it will change because Ruul seems to respect love/romance and picks the wives of his Seers. He seems to have rules himself and maybe with Gabria some will change. He is like a friend. As for the sons being inhabited by him, what about the daughters? Maybe a daughter will be a vessel some time around. Things happen...
