Editorial Reviews


Juelle Shanard's work as a psychologist depends on her understanding her patients. The Terran is on Delphi to help one of the Delphian pythias. Pythias are found only on Delphi and are gifted with psi ability. When a young girl is bitten by a moncat, she becomes a pythia. It is a rare gift that Juelle can never hope to possess because she is too old and a Terran. But she believes she has recreated a formula that will enable her to become a pythia artificially. The Delphians are wary of the Terran technologies and Juelle is forbidden from using the formula. Juelle hopes to convince the Delphians to join the United Planets Republic so that they can benefit from the alliance as well as share their pythias in trade. But one man is determined to see that Juelle does not fulfill her goal. Eron is the new Councilman from Oasis and a firm believer in the traditional Delphi ways. Through his sister, Eron received a prophecy from the Oracle that the Terran technology would destroy Delphi. And he has reason to believe that Juelle will be a key to the destruction or prosperity of Delphi. Eron intends to convince Juelle to see things his way and to preserve his planet. Juelle follows logic and Eron relies on brute force. Thrown together for a long trip to Oasis, Juelle and Eron will try to convince each other of their beliefs. Along the way they will learn to respect one another and to open their hearts to the rarest of all gifts-- love.Pam McCutcheon has created a unique and fascinating world! For a change of pace from traditional romances, Quicksilver is entertaining and fun to read. The moncats will appeal to animal lovers and fans of science fiction will love the plot! Quicksilver is the sequel to Golden Prophecies and if you haven't already read Golden Prophecies, you will want to once you finish this fabulous futuristic! Pam McCutcheon is a bright star in the world of futuristics! A well-written tale of romance and sci-fi! Let your imagination go wild and join Pam McCutcheon on an out-of-this-world adventure! An exceptional book! The genre of futuristic romance could use more authors like Pam McCutcheon! Quicksilver is pure gold!Kristina Wright -- Copyright © 1994-97 Literary Times, Inc.

More About the Author

I've been a reader all my life, starting out with fairy tales and graduating to reading everything in the house when I grew older, including my parents' romances, mysteries, science fiction, fantasy, and action/adventure.

If a writer can combine romance and humor with a fantasy, science fiction, or paranormal element, I'm hooked. Add action/adventure, and it's even better!

Since I couldn't find quite enough books that combine these elements, I sat down to write some of my own. Read more about my books on http://www.pammc.com

I now live in Colorado with my three dogs: Mo, Daisy and Trixie.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Pam McCutcheon gives us another fast-paced, fun filled read set in her futuristic land inhabited by oracles, moncats and sexy heroes!
Earthling Juelle Shanard wants to bring technology to the planet Delphi for the good of the people. The planet is rather backwoods in her eyes and she feels the only way they can survive is to join forces with the Republic of Planets and accept technology and all of the wonders it'll bring. During her meeting with Delphi's ruling council her biggest and loudest resister to her ideas is Councilman Eron. He's impossibly pigheaded, stubborn and outspoken.
Juelle is a psychiatrist. Several Pythias fear they may succumb to madness and she is the only qualified person to heal them. Because of Eron's strong objections and refusal to listen to her proposal the Council orders him to travel with her as she heads out to heal an ailing Pythia in his home town.
At first she is pleased with this arrangement thinking she will be able to change his mind in the two hours it will take to make the trip. But she underestimates his stubbornness and soon finds out they will be making the trip by horseback, of all the archaic things, and that it will take them two weeks because Mr. Pigheaded refuses to set foot in her aircraft!
As they travel they get to know each other and find it hard to resist their mutual attraction, only they must because they are also traveling with Eron's cousin Hermes and a very sensitive moncat (creatures who bond with Pythias). During their travels they are accosted by the evil Nevan who was banished from Delphi for betraying a Pythia. He has concocted a plan to gain leadership of the planet and he needs Juelle in order to complete his treachery.

I truly enjoyed the setting and pace of this book. I enjoy Sci-Fi and romance, and this nicely combined the two. After reading this book, I immediately started looking for the first book, "Golden Prophesies" so I can read it too. Definitely recommend this book!
