The Stunning Sequel
to the Highly Acclaimed
Fighting doubt and convention, beset with great challenge and facing profound
change, Tellurith leads her displaced House to a new beginning and a different
life in Iskarda--a life that includes men and women as equals. But the
traditionalist Iskardans are outraged by Tellurith's policies and appalled by
her love for two husbands: Alkhes--the rough, dark Outlander who brought
Amberlight its doom--and golden Sarth, epitome of the urbane men of the
Amberlight Towers. To achieve Tellurith's dream, both must re-shape their lives.
To preserve the dream, all three must journey to Dhasdein's imperial capital of
Riversend and face deadly menace and perilous machination.
"Australian fantasy author Kelso mimics the flavor and
feel of her homeland in the rhythms of her prose, the descriptions of
the landscape, and the tough, resilient nature of her characters."--Library
"Kelso's prose is layered and sometimes lyrical, but never difficult to follow.
This novel deserves to be widely read."--As If
