Overview

Ran-Del Jahanpur is a warrior of the Sansoussy Forest, trained in both the mental and physical Disciplines of his people. He thinks he's prepared for any danger the forest might hold, but his skills prove useless when he's caught in a hi-tech trap. Soon Ran-Del finds himself in a city so alien it might as well be another world—machines speak, vehicles fly, and his captors' weapons can inflict pain without touching him. Every time Ran-Del tries to escape, he's foiled by a technology he doesn't understand. As terrifying as the city is, his kidnapper, the enigmatic Baron Hayden, exudes a jovial affability that worries the Sansoussy even more. What can such a powerful man want with a Sansoussy warrior, who can neither read nor write and knows nothing of city ways? The Baron's daughter Francesca clearly knows more than she's saying, but Ran-Del's psy sense tells him only she's being truthful, not what she's thinking. And it's only after it seems that Ran-Del has escaped the city and its dangers, that he finds out how thoroughly he has been caught.

I start out with a story not thinking I'll like it and then I keep reading to find out what's going to happen next. It's a bit of a sci-fi/romance. A bit of a Tarzan/Jane spin-off. I like the world, I like the characters and how the different cultures are portrayed. I like the setting and how as soon as I would have a question and think - that wouldn't work! - the author moves the plot along with a character rationalization, which draws you further into the story.

Stats: 980 nook pages, sci-fi romance, rated-PG sex scenes and language, very few errors. Two worlds collide, a nature-based psychic tribal society clashes with big city, high tech, ruthless business cartels. A nice long free book. Not sure if I'll pay the $3 for the sequal. I like where this one ended...

I almost didn't read this because it was described as sort of the same old tech story. Well I mean, the brief did not do the book justice. Waiting anxiously for the sequel. This was a great book.

What a ride this book gave me! This book is longer than most free books for Nook. this gave plenty of time to get to know the characters and see them go as the story progresses. Two people from very different worlds, he from the forests and she from the city. Her father knows she will need help in the future as she takes over his empire. From trips he has made into the forest, he know she will need the help of a warrior of the forest. He finds what he is looking for and kidnaps him and takes him to the city. Then all kinds of troubles happen. Read this book. You will enjoy it.
