This is one of the best Sci-Fi books I've ever read. The characters and events are compelling, leading to many late-night reading sessions that last far after one should be asleep. The world C.S. Friedman creates here is both a vividly imagined fantasy, and an interesting stage for her characters to work upon. Recommended highly

Very well written, thoughtful, provocative. It's the kind of book that is hard to put down even at the last page.

Read this book on a whim and could not put it down. A lot going on. Not your typical sci-fi. A must read.

A political sci-fi, In Conquest Born follows Anzha, a natural born psychic whose parents are murdered while she is still young. A shadowed group seizes her and trains her to fear life, people and, most of all, to hate the Braxi. She's made into a weapon against their enemy race, pale and dark haired with a hatred of psychics. Her life's course might have followed this path either way, but the choice is taken from her, and she is created. Her hatred is the driving force in her life as she seeks to infiltrate the Braxi and bring them down. Their strange culture leads one of their upper class to fall in love with her. Zatar views the war and her pursuit of his species' extinction with a strangely attracted fascination. He uses his connections to weave through her past and find out the secrets that drive her. Will he destroy her with them, or will she triumph? The two peoples have been at war for centuries, and the only way to end it seems to be total annihilaton. But there is another force at work, barely seen through the book, that could turn the tables. Riveting, with more secrets to share that can be discovered, In Conquest Born is a win. https://badfantasyrx.blogspot.com/2016/09/cs-friedman-in-conquest-born.html

I just loved this book. It draws you in and never lets you go, even by the last page. Everything about it makes me want to read it again.
