“Sweeps the reader along like a wild wind across the steppes. Tell Kate to write faster—I want to read the whole saga NOW!” —Melanie Rawn, author of the Dragon Prince Trilogy
“[Kate Elliott] spins a splendid web of a tale to trap the unwary and hold them in thrall until the tale is done. Here is another one. . . . Take care, for if you open these pages you’ll be up past dawn.” —Dennis L. McKiernan, author of Voyage of the Fox Rider
About the Author
She likes to play sports more than she likes to watch them; right now, her sport of choice is outrigger canoe paddling. Her spouse has a much more interesting job than she does, with the added benefit that they had to move to Hawaii for his work; thus the outrigger canoes. They also have a schnauzer (a.k.a. the Schnazghul).

There are NOT a bewildering different points of few from a wide variety of characters--something I dislike. 3-4 points of view in a long story is about my max. Proof reading & editing is better than most self published writers. (Another pet peeve of mine is sloppy proof reading and poor editing.) I write reviews for only 4-5* & 1* only. If I could, I'd rate this at 4 & 1/2*. The story is a combination adventure, mystery, romance, set in the future, on a different planet. Ergo, Elliott crosses several genres. Buy the book & enjoy the entertainment she provides.
This is just such a fantastic book. It's incredibly refreshing to read SF based in a culture where the traditional roles of men and women are NOT the same as those of our world -- and to have them so exquisitely built and meticulously crafted that they don't feel stilted or patched together. It's like living in the city your whole life and then taking your first breath of country air -- and realizing how stifled you've been your whole life. My only regret is that it ended!
The characters are just lovely, the story caught me and kept me enraptured, but through it all the worldbuilding is what really shone through. Galaxybuilding, really -- there are three cultures being dealt with, and it's awfully interesting to have Humans be the least of the three. Hah!
This is a book I've returned to more than once since first reading it, and it never fails to settle me and really immerse me in a world like and yet so very unlike our own.
