I was pleasantly surprised with this book (as well as the Compass Rose Book #1). I just picked this book as well as the Compass Rose up on a whim. It was like finding a little treasure. This is a book that is definitely hard to put down. I love the fact that a woman is running the show, but also can allow ¿her men¿ to take care of her. Over all, I love the story because of the relationships with in as well as all of the surprises the characters have to face. I can¿t wait until the next and final book. Come on Gail, PLEASE put us out of our misery soon!!!! -Listel

Kallista is the focus of her temple bound mates (a group marriage of husbands and wives known as an ilian) able to draw the magic from them to use in the defense of Adara. After defeating the foreign enemies of her country last year, Kallista and her iIlian retire to the countryside and she gives birth to twins and Aisse is pregnant. When Reinine Serysta recalls Kallista she has the twins, accompanied by, Stone, Fox, and Aisse and the nanny to a place of safety fearing danger has come to Adara. --- She learns that a civil war is taking place and the rebels might possess gunpowder. Kallista and her llian are sent to the rebel stronghold to ferret out information that can be used in the defense of the capital city. To save the children, Fox lets himself be captured and Kallista¿s main goal now is to free him. Kallista, the first godstruck in a millennium with the unheard of magical powers of the West is the only one who can fight and destroy the demons if they don¿t kill her first. After rejoining Fox and reuniting with the rest of her Ilian, she has enough power to fight the demons if she can find out who they are possessing. --- More husbands and wives are added to Kallista¿s ilian including the children¿s nanny and a former enemy making the group more powerful than any other in the country. The world building in THE BARBED ROSE is fantastic making readers feel the place really exists. The characters are real, totally likeable and complex and readers enjoy getting to know the members of the ilian. In a world where everyday magic is taken for granted the heroine stands alone because she has great magic and an ever growing magical ability. Gail Dayton¿s tale has many surprises in store for the reader especially the dramatic ending. --- Harriet Klausner
