About the Author

After a health crisis, Eva Caye morphed from dilettante writer into obsessive author, publishing DIGNITY, the first of seven books in the To Be Sinclair series, as an e-book in August 2012, with MAJESTY following in October, FEALTY in December, ROYALTY in January, and a new book, EASTER EGGS, an anthology of the four free short stories added to her first three books. The author's goal is to have the series (plus one add-on book) all published within one year. Eva lives with her magnificent husband and two lovely mutts in a tiny farmhouse in Louisville, Kentucky.

I'm not sure at what point I simply hunkered down at the recognition of a kindred spirit, one who understands the value of a story told with respect, in depth and with exquisite attention to detail, and allowed myself to be swept away into a galaxy and time far, far away, but as current as today, as compelling as yesterday.
Told with the lush prose of a Jane Austen, as well as with that author's incisive, detailed and quite pointed barbs at social strata and the constraints on actors thrust onto stages not of their own choosing, this is science fiction masquerading as historical fiction on the grandest scale. It also had me reminiscing about the opulence of the Russian literary tradition--certainly the staging reeks of Imperialist Russia and the machinations of members of the Imperial House waging a form of class warfare for political and social advantage.
Then throw in wormholes, arcane technology, competing planets/houses of commerce, space travel, sophisticated methods for oversight, loyalty, brotherhood, social niceties, mannerisms, sexual discrimination, depression, horrendous/heinous acts of violence... ball gowns to die for, fashion as weapon, symbology. And a sigh-worthy love story.
Do I have your attention? I certainly hope I do.
Told from Felicia's Sorenson's point-of-view throughout, this young woman is definitely to the manor born, wealthy, privileged, albeit a bit naïve and untutored in the ways of court. That little problem is taken care of by her sorority's matron and mentor, Lady Brighton, whose main task is to see to the proper upbringing of the High Royals placed in her charge as they further their education at university, an education with a singular goal: marriage and propagating lineage.

As the first of a series about the Sinclair royals on a world somewhere else surrounded by wormholes, this sets the series up nicely. We are introduced to characters we will, I suspect, come to know well, particularly Felicia and Victor.

This isn’t your average sci-fi, though. Besides the science, there are also worlds and culture and depth in relationships. Felicia is a strong female character and I rooted for her from the get-go.

Well done to the author; this is a worthy read.

I typically shy away from books in the 'romance' genre due to the typical design of boy meets girl, marries girl, lives happily ever after. Much of the genre feels rushed, and overcome with sappy plot lines that simply create unrealistic characters. This is not the case with this book.

This story makes a fabulous foundation for the series. It has strong lead characters, both male and female. It is evident this story is well thought out, and put together. Every character faces realistic personal concerns. Each aspect of the story weaves together ways to overcome them, while not losing the individual self in the process. This is admirable and makes the book a fantastic story to read.

This is truly a story driven by the characters, not the events, which makes each person you interact with in the book a real person.

If you want a good story about personal reflection, individual strength, and unified efforts that amount to incredible individual achievements - this is the right book for your library.

One thing I really appreciated about this book is that the science is important, but not at all overwhelming. A lot of people think science fiction is all about the concepts. Ms. Caye is all about the story, as Felicia's scientific knowledge shows itself little by little, and ends up helping Victor save the day. What's most important is how she shows science isn't just a disipline. It's research by real people for real needs.

Dignity is a very easy, free-flowing read. It is precise and clear, as if someone were describing the scenes of a movie, except they also know what's going on in the character's head.

I am anxiously awaiting Ms. Caye's next book!

The first novel in the To Be Sinclair series was a real surprise for me. The writing and editing was nearly flawless and the story definitely satisfied. I would have rated it 4.5 stars if possible.

This smart, richly-detailed tale beautifully blends science fiction and romance in a lush setting with intricate politics, backstory and world-building. I connected with both Felicia and Victor from their very first exchange and throughout their difficult romantic journey. After all, it's not easy to forge a love affair when he is the reigning Emperor of a planetary system and she is a brilliant, and always chaperoned, student.

Victor's tragic backstory as the sole survivor of his royal family affected me on a very deep level. In spite of this dark history, he's risen to become a powerful and respected but very lonely ruler. The large supporting cast of characters--from royals to rivals to watchmen to mentors to peers--are equally well drawn and fleshed-out.

Though this story may not appeal to those who demand a lightning pace, there are several unexpected and dangerous twists in the plot that continuously up the stakes, as well as offering puzzling mysteries to be solved. Victor and Felicia often struggle through their conflicts and decisions about their future--and whether that future will be together or apart. I related to Felicia's choices on every level as she grappled with what she was driven to do vs. her love for Victor and her desire to be part of his life. I also respected Victor for having the strength to compromise, even in the face of criticism and censure by powerful foes.
