The Water Knife by Paolo Bacigalupi
The Water Knife by Paolo Bacigalupi
Into the chaos of a prolonged drought step Angel Velasquez—a "water knife"; Lucy Monroe, a hardened journalist; and Maria Villarosa, a young migrant, who dreams of escaping north to those places where water still falls from the sky: All three find themselves pawns in a game far bigger, more corrupt and dirtier than any of them could have imagined.

Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Lowell ( Only His ) opens her medieval trilogy with a fanciful but banal story of Lady Margaret, who marries the Norman knight Dominic le Sabre in the hope that he can protect her Saxon home, Blackthorne Keep, during troubled times. In marrying him, she defies the dying wish of John of Cumbriland, who raised her: that she wed his illegitimate son, Duncan of Maxwell. Meg and Dominic are surrounded by threats: Duncan is poised to disrupt the wedding; Eadith, Meg's attendant, hates the Normans, who killed "her husband, father, brothers, and uncles" (women relatives seem of no concern); Meg's powerful home-brewed medicine has been stolen and her "Glendruid" psychic powers indicate impending danger. Lowell's clumsy tale appears to glorify a system that ranks females as less valuable than males. Dominic seeks a male heir, but Meg's eccentric Glendruid reproductive system may deny him his wish: Glendruid women are not known for producing sons. If Dominic gives Meg "great pleasure" in bed, he will earn himself a daughter, but it takes "great love" to produce a son. Major ad/promo.

This is the first EL book I've read and the first book that has actually brought tears to my eyes. VERY often I wanted to bop Dominic. Most of the time actually. He was stupid, arrogant, stupid, frustrating, stupid, beautiful, sexy, and postively wonderful. Meg's character was the ideal heroine. I think her personality is best shown when Dominic forcefully drags Meg from making the herbal antidote. She fought even though she knew Dominic was physically stronger but that didn't stop her determination. I especially liked the fact that Meg and Dominic were honest with each other. They didn't deceive each other to later have it pop up and become a barrier and one more to overcome.I'm a firm believer in honesty but you have to ask the right questions. Dominic didn't always do that.......
The love scenes........ oh my! When Dominic feeds his 'small falcon', that's it! I say no more on the subject except be sure you have air conditioning.
The supporting characters were well written too. I'm anxious to see what lies ahead for Duncan and Simon.
I want to say Ms. Lowell I was not very pleased with you the other morning when I crawled (reluctantly) to bed at 3:45 AM. I kept telling myself, just one more chapter. Forbidden is on the coffee table. I have alot to do today and it's drawing me like a magnet. Wish me luck!
Enjoy.

OK, I admit it I've never read an Elizabeth Lowell book until now. Whew, I didn't realize what I was missing! This was one of those rare books that hooked me in & wouldn't let me put it down.

The book starts out with the pending marriage of Lady Margaret (Meg) & returning Crusader Dominic le Sabra. Neither have laid eyes on the other before but are both willing to go along with the prearranged marriage. Meg accepts this as her fate (although she is by no means a wimp!) & Dominic wants to claim the castle & lands that come along with Meg and begin working on making himself some heirs. Only problem is that Meg happens to be one of the cursed Glendruid (white) witches that for centuries have been unable to conceive male offspring because of a witche's past mistake and the missing Glendruid Wolf. It has been rumored that all Glendruid women are unable to fall in love with a man and vice versa because their powers of perception make them cold and impossible to love. This isn't the only obstacle the couple must face in order to find happiness....
Meg is a charming heroine with a touching love for her people & land who will sacrifice everything to save the people who mean so much to her. She's truly an admirable character. Dominic is a wonderful scarred hero who wants nothing more than to settle down and end all of the fighting and bloodshed.
Overall this was a very sensuous and tender love story with a wonderful ending. I highly recommend it & can't wait to dig into the other books in this trilogy.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book brought back my faith in romance novels. The two previous books by Julie Garwood I had for my summer reading were irritating, full of silly bickering between the hero and heroine, with some love scenes thrown in. This book, however, was different. Instead of showing conflict between the two lead characters through dumb arguments, the author showed it by giving me heartbreaking insight into the hero and heroine's minds and hearts. By making me understand their hurts and fears, the author made me actually CARE for the lovers, instead of just CURIOUS as to what the ending would be. The author's Dominic and Meg are three dimensional and real, unlike the "cookie cutter-shaped" characters of other romances I've read. This book had a lot of fresh material, a lot of new ideas. I still can't forget the scene where Dominic attempts to "tame" Meg in the most unusual way - as gently as he would tame a newly-snared falcon. This scene took my breath away. If you're tired of worn-out plots and you're ready for a real LOVE story, I definitely recommend this book!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
In an age and a land filled with war, Dominic le Sabre is longing for peace and a land he can build on, with a wife who will bear him sons. As a reward for his heroic acts during the Crusades, King Henry I grants him his wish. Dominic is given Lady Margaret as his wife. She is the heir to Blackthorne keep.

Dominic arrives at Blackthorne and finds it filled with intrigue he must unravel and spies he must discover before he can gain full control of the keep. Most important of all is the puzzle surrounding his wife. Meg is a Glendruid witch, the last of a dying Celtic clan living under a curse. A thousand years ago, because of a betrayal, the Glendruid witches have not been able to bear sons. The stipulations are thus: If the witch is raped on her wedding night, she will not bear a child and a withering curse will descend on the keep. If her husband gives her pleasure, she will bear him a daughter. If, however, the witch and her husband are in love with each other, she will bear him a son.

Dominic approaches the problem as he would a war: to lay siege to his wife and win her love. But Meg sees through him and knows only that Dominic is incapable of love and she is, therefore, unable to bear him a son. Despite that, Meg pours her healing efforts into Dominic, to heal the wounds inflicted on his during the Crusades and hopefully to restore his heart.

Elizabeth Lowell is an enthralling storyteller. She weaves a compelling story filled with suspenseful intrigue and dynamic characters that will steal your heart and breath away. You'll be captivated to the last page.
