I don't really know how this book came into my library (I know I didn't buy it, so I think it might have been a gift, but of the sort like: Here's a box of books. Want them?), but it's stayed in because it's signed.I read it, and it was pretty interesting. Very much immersion into the very detailed world the author has created, but I didn't have any problem with that and it was the first book of this author that I read.

Sauscony and Jaibriol are in exile on a deserted planet, being happily domestic and happily away from the politics that could keep them apart. Things get more complicated when Jaibriol is snatched away and brought back into the politics of the Highton Aristo world, where he is the Emperor, but also, as a psychic, a puppet of the ruling caste and a valuable toy.Sauscony has to try to rescue him and if that takes bringing in the Ruby Empire, so be it. However the repercussions could be terrible, and whether or not there will be a world where they can live in peace, is a major question.It's one of the better of this series, she continues to be quite readable, but it's not amazing.

In this book, a continuation of Primary Inversion, we find Soz and Jaibriol living their lives in exile. Meanwhile, their respective empires are heading for a major showdown in space. It has grand action, personal tension, fascinating characters, interesting science, and a heroine that any one could love. The development of both the Traders and Kurj makes them much more than two dimensional characters. Ms. Asaro is definitely on the top of her game here.

I would like to start by saying that I really enjoyed 'Primary Inversion' and didn't think the story or characters could get any better. Was I ever wrong. 'Radiant Seas' in my opinion is even better than Catherine Asaro's first book. I will admit that I am no scientist and a lot of the more technical parts of the book went way over my head, but it in no way detracted from the story which was magnificent, as were the plot twists and the wonderful characters. Catherine Asaro has created a fantastic world of science and fiction. I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series.
