This is the fifth book in Spangler's Futuristic Shielder series and it is another strong tale, leaving us waiting for more! Jenna dan Aron, a Shielder seer. Worse, she is one who has envisioned her own terrible fate. In her farseeing, she saw herself mated to a Leor, a man from a cruel race of people. In a Vulcan style, they suppress any emotion and they mate for life. Even knowing this ahead of time, she fears she cannot stop fate, so she embraces it. When the Comdar of Saura, Arion, comes to Shamara seeking a mate, Jenna, resigned to her destiny, volunteers. Arion is not thrilled to be marrying outside his race, but he as no other choice. He fears Jenna will not adjust the barbarian ways of the Leor, thinks her too weak and feeble to survive. However, Jenna is stronger than even she knows, and along the way she finds Arion is not the distant man he shows the world. Once again, Spangler builds a strong Futuristic World, that grabs the reader and pulls into the marvelous land. Keep them coming, Catherine! The all time leader of Sci-Fi Romance, long before it was popular! 2004 Reviews International Organization Award of Excellence Finalist

I rarely read sci-fi but found this book's cover intriquing and picked it up. I'm so glad I did. Ms. Spangler has painted an extraordinary world in Shadow Fires, one filled with engaging, well-fleshed out characters you immediately relate to. If you're into Sci-Fi , this is a must read. If you're not into sci-fi, Shadow Fire is still a must read.

This was a great new twist. I hope there are more to come. I had to order the other 4 books just in case I missed something. She has accomplished the ultimate marriage between sci-fi and heavy romance. Its great! I'm very excited over this serie.

Ruling Comdar of Saura Arion rejects Shielder Jarek san Ranul offer of irridon. Instead, Arion loathingly barters for a mate among the outsiders. His Leor race is in trouble due to inbreeding among the small population and biologically minuscule fertile cycles of their females that if continues unabated means extinction in the near future. Thus Arion like others seeks a non Leor bride to produce hybrid offspring. He and his clan will rescue two Shielder colonies in trouble in exchange for a wife. This upsets the Shielder who detests the concept of bartering people as goods. Because of her gift to see into the future, Jenna knows that she is destined to be sacrificed as a mate for the barbarous Leor warlord who apparently trades in human flesh. Jenna ¿volunteers¿ to mate with the beast. As they become acquainted through squabbling, they fall in love, but Jenna and Arion respectively has prejudicial notions about their mate that could supernova their relationship unless the positive qualities that they observe overcomes their biases.

The ¿Shadow¿ novels are some of the best romantic science fiction on the market today because the varying races that make up the Spangler universe seems so real. The latest terrific tale, SHADOW FIRES, is a great novel as the lead couple is a delightful dueling duo and the support cast enables the audience to learn more about their respective races. The story line is action packed on the two levels that of a science fiction thriller and an outer space romance with both blending brilliantly together. Catherine Spangler spangles once again with this superb stellar story.
