By Marshall Lord TOP 1000 REVIEWER on December 9, 2006
Format: Paperback
This is one of the two opening volumes in a group of five books. Sharon Green initially started with the intention of writing two individual novels, of which this was one, but the tale grew in the writing into an unusual double trilogy.

Green herself described it in the afterword to the final book as an "odd series" organised into "two crossed trilogies in the form of an X."

One trilogy tells the story of the sorceress Chalaine and the sorcerer-prince Bariden. That trilogy starts with "The Hidden Realms", shares the middle book "Dark Mirror, Dark Dreams" with the second trilogy, and is concluded in the final book of the quintet, the appropriately named "Game's End.

However, "Silver Princess, Golden Knight," kicks off another trilogy within the same broader canvass, telling the story of Princess Alexia and the mercenary captain Tiran d'Iste, both of whom are shapeshifters. Their adventure, which includes both a romance and a quest for a kingdom, starts here, and continues as the two stories come together in "Dark Mirror, Dark Dreams", which is the middle book of both trilogies. The story of Alexia and Tiran is sort-of concluded in the fourth book in the quintet, "Wind Whispers, Shadow Shouts". The double titles denote this second trilogy.

The linkages between the two stories are clearest in the middle book, where all four characters work together, and at the conclusion of "Dark Mirror, Dark Dreams" each of the two couples become the rightful King and Queen of their own Kingdom. In the final two books, each couple has to defend their newly-gained realm and its' people against attack by powerful evil from beyond the worlds.

If you are going to read this series, it helps to read each trilogy in order and to read "Game's End" last.

Princess Alexa is rebellious, opinionated and wants adventure and travel. Tiran d'Iste is a mercenary who is tired of travel, but doesn't want to settle down if it means boardom. Alexa's father, the King, is at the end of his rope with his agravating, disobediant daughter but has an idea: a competition for her hand in marriage plus a dowery. Tiran takes one look at Alex and decides she is definately not boaring and is the one for him. Alex takes one look at Tiran and decides to keep away as she is attracted to him but desires freedom. Much adventure follows.

This is the first book of a series set in a fantasy of interconnected worlds. This story is about shapeshifters, but the next include the Sighted (magicians,wizards and sorcerers) and the stories beging to intertwine, revealing a more sinister back plot. Very excellent series.

I always remember this book everytime I yearn for a good read! The male character, Tristan d'Iste, is the perfect, fantastic conjuring of beauty and power that would satisfy the sappy female reader. The character Alexis is the Xena for those females that love to daydream, and the perfect woman for the man who isn't afraid to handle a strong woman. The story is rich with imagination and enough action to keep the reader interested. The fire and dialogue between the two characters is hot enough to make us stop and wish we ( females, at least) could climb into the book. All in all, this book is for the ones who want to escape from the humdrum reality of hard labor and lackluster love lives. We're all free to dream, aren't we?

I picked this book out because I tend to like fantasy/science fiction with a good romance. I was quickly disappointed. The storyline, disguised as fantasy, quickly devolved into obviously sexist and remarkably uninteresting quasi-romantic blather. The "strong" female character was irritating and the male characters (father and male lead) always knew best. The heroine was eventually bent to the will of the men and decided that she liked it. The occasional sex scenes were uninspiring. Ugh.
