Her plots and characters are believable and solidly written.

The humans of theJaran are primitive, by our standards, and many on their world practice enslavement of women and outright slavery as well.

I've thoroughly enjoyed reading all four books of the Jaran series over the last few weeks.

She plans on several more books in the Jaran series, but it doesn't sound like she'll be getting back to those until she finishes her sequel to _The Golden Key_ (which is an excellent book too, btw) which she'll do after she finishes "Crown of Stars". In other words, we've a long time to wait for more in this fantastic series. <sigh>

I have read and reread the Jaran and the King's Dragon series. Both are highly enjoyable. The last novel in the Jaran series is good but nothing like the first two where I can imagine myself as Tess. The rest tend to drift. However I would like to know what happens to Antony in the Chapalian hierachy struggle. Ms. Elliot--please finish the series before going on with more books.

Ms Elliott's series is stretched and expanded by the scaling problem of any transplanetary fiction. The events of the plot range from the mundane details of life on the plains of one island on a small planet in a backwater stellar system to the ruling halls of a galaxy-wide empire. Although she suspends most of the laws of physics for the sake of the story, she does address some intriguing aspects of the clashes between her romantic pre-industrial culture, the quasi-science culture of her star-faring humans, and the post-science culture of the aliens. None are unscathed by their entanglement at the end of this stage of the series.
Although she comes to a tender and subtle conclusion of the romance, she leaves a gnawing desire at the end for exploring much more of the rich world(s) she has conceived.

This book has more humans adjusting to life with the Jaran, and some Jaran adjusting to life on earth. Some people even visit the Chapilii, and communication (or not) is interesting. We meet several new characters, while the old ones continue to develop - Tess, Charles, and even Anatoly finally come into their own. It has a cool vision of the internet's future. In some ways this book ties things up... but some new twists are introduced... leaving Jaran lovers impatient for the eventual book number five!!

Kate Elliott has brought to us a future that can happen. Her plots and characters are believable and solidly written. The complexity of the jaran culture that she has brought to life is extraordinary. This series is a MUST for true readers. I am anxiously hoping for a book 5. A good 5 star recommendation!!!!!

This book is the fourth in the series about the Jaran, and the writing of Kate Elliot continues to delight me. This series is a fantasy set on another planet that involves an improved version of humans. The humans of theJaran are primitive, by our standards, and many on their world practice enslavement of women and outright slavery as well. The Jaran are different, and from there the story unfolds....

A lovely series that poses a number of philosophical questions, very enjoyable to read.

This final volume in the Jaran series to date is a masterpiece! Elliott manages to tie up all of the loose ends, and tastefully resolves the lingering issue between Tess and Ilya regarding her earthly origins. All of your favourite characters are revisited, and their stories are played out. I laughed and cried, cheered and was angered. Elliott has captured the nuances that make us human, and the complexities of life in small communities. If you like Kate Elliott's work then this is a must read.
