The Shadow Prince

( 3 )

Overview

A DARK PACT--The second son of the king, Adrik should have been an honored prince of the Median Empire. Instead, he was sacrificed at birth to his father's lust for power. He became the property of Malkaval--was raised as that great demon's own, and was taught the ways of sorcery. He locked himself away in the gloomy halls of Khorazm, a recluse, never once forgetting his purpose: Someday he would enter the Shadow Realm, trade places with his master, and be damned for eternity.

More About This Book

Overview

A DARK PACT--The second son of the king, Adrik should have been an honored prince of the Median Empire. Instead, he was sacrificed at birth to his father's lust for power. He became the property of Malkaval--was raised as that great demon's own, and was taught the ways of sorcery. He locked himself away in the gloomy halls of Khorazm, a recluse, never once forgetting his purpose: Someday he would enter the Shadow Realm, trade places with his master, and be damned for eternity.

AN EMBER OF HOPE--His black fate kept Adrik from others. There was no solace for a man like himself--no matter how pwerful he became, what magic he might conjure in the long lonely nights. Then he met a woman--a stunning beauty, blond and magnificent--who streaked into his life like a dying star. And she needed him. The Arizanti priestess was everything he'd ever dreamed of, and she sparked in Adrik a terrible desire for freedom. For the first time, he dared to hope that their love might overcome the darkness.

    A conjurer's delight

    If you like your romance steamy and your heroes other worldly, The Shadow Prince is the book for you. But there is a bonus with this book, a new setting that has gone untapped by other romance writers. Jan Zimlich has set her novel amid warring factions of the Median and the Lydian Empires of the 6th century BC. In addition to a sizzling romance, the reader is treated to court intrigues, sibling rivalry, military clashes and mythological apparitions from the dark realm. Adrik was given to a demon by his father as soon as he was born. He has been taught the ways of sorcery and is very powerful, but not powerful enough to overcome his dark fate. Adrienne of the Arizanti has been left bound to a stake on the plains of the Median Empire near the Caspian Sea. She is there as tribute to Burian, prince of the Busae, for safe passage of the Arizanti tribe through his lands. She is first discovered by Adrik, and Burian, recognizing his half-brother's interest in the pale, Northern beauty, gives her to him to insure his fealty and the support of his army in the upcoming clash with the Lydians. Burian immediately regrets his decision for he finds he is unable to get Adrienne's pale hair and fair skin out of his mind. The clash between the two half-brothers and Adrik's determination to elude the dark fate that has been determined for him from birth makes a gripping backdrop for the growing relationship between Adrik and Adrienne. Ms. Zimlich has created a rich environment which the reader can only hope will yield future books as enjoyable as this one.

    THE SHADOW PRINCE

    Median Empire, 585 BC What¿s an Arizanti priestess to do when her mother is betrayed and murdered, and she¿s left tied to a post out in the elements to either live until the man she¿s been sold to arrives--or die before he gets there....? What¿s a prince of the realm to do when his own father gives him over as a baby for personal gain to a daemon, growing up under the daemon¿s watchful eye, knowing that at an appointed time he will die so the daemon can take human form....? They find each other to love till the end. In her usual inimitable style, Jan Zimlich has penned a classic tale of anger and betrayal, love and passion. Set in a time all but forgotten except by those deeply in love with history, THE SHADOW PRINCE is almost fairytale like, and Lorienne and Adrik are so real they'll tear at your heartstrings. Tender, poignant love scenes will have you sighing deeply while reaching for your fan, and the occasional sparks of humor will cause you to laugh out loud. Yet through it all, the thread of anxiety at Adrik's fate is deftly woven, keeping the tension tight. As hard as I tried, I just could not see how she could possibly turn this around with a happy ever after ending, and just when I¿d about given up hope-- she did it! Simply, realistically, while staying true to the storyline--she did it. I didn¿t even see it coming. And I cried. This story is a complete departure from Ms. Zimlich's other works. She started out writing Futuristics, and her last story was historical-like in a futuristic setting. As rich and engaging as these other stories are, I'm convinced she¿s finally found her niche with THE SHADOW PRINCE. Her love of history combines with her story telling ability to perfection. Once you begin reading THE SHADOW PRINCE, you won¿t want to put it down. I promise. Jaycee 2002

    powerful romantic fantasy inside a vivid BC setting

    Arkanna killed Shalelle because the High Priestess of the Arizanti Tribe refused to bend to her will. The murderer offers the same deal to Shalelle¿s daughter Lorienne, who rejects her too. Arkanna informs her prisoner that she sold her to the Prince of the Busae Empire to insure safe passage for the tribe. If the Busae arrive in time Lorienne might live long enough to pleasure her owners. <P>Prince Busae rescues Lorienne, but gives her as a present to ensure the loyalty of his half-brother, the demon trained sorcerer Adrik. As the couple becomes acquainted with one another, they begin to fall in love. However, Adrik knows the anointed time of swapping his life to enable his demon mentor to use his body is upon him. Besides the demands of his teacher, Busae abducts Lorienne. Will Adrik rescue his true love or go along with his demonic induced fate that he has spent a lifetime training to accomplish? <P>THE SHADOW PRINCE is a powerful romantic fantasy inside a vividly described BC setting. The story line is loaded with action from the very until the final confrontation, but the key to this book is the strength of the key characters (villains and heroes) so that readers understand their motives and backgrounds (though Arkanna¿s role seems short changed). Jan Zimlich provides fans with a deep tale that will appeal to the tastes of the cross genre audience. <P>Harriet Klausner
