Diana n'Athena is an Amazon working for the Terran Empire on the medieval planet of Aggar. Her mission is to rescue a downed pilot/spy from Aggar's wilds. But when the Council demands she be bonded to a Shadow in order to be allowed to make the journey, things get interesting. Shadows are exceptional guides and fighters, but Elana is something more - she has the gift of the Blue Sight. As the two women race against time to prevent an all-out intergalactic war, they become erotically entangled, complicating both their lives and putting their mission in danger.
The face of Aggar has become nearly unrecognizable. The people have traded their free will for peace, bowing down to the Choir, a mysterious, faceless force in the dreamscape. The Choir's songs sweep across the land, controlling the minds of the people. Controlling everyone but the Amazons - who have taken to the ocean, protected from the songs by the winds over the sea.
Royal Marshal Gwyn of the Amazons of Aggar travels into danger to aid and protect Blue Sighted Llinolae, the ruler of Khirla, a city plagued by Terran raids. But magic is afoot, political plots brew, and these two women may need the advice of two who lived hundreds of years before, Diana n'Athena and Elana n'Sappho.
"Amazing narrator and story"
Three women of Aggar. Three women so different, they may as well be from worlds as vast and varied as their ancestors. The face of Aggar has changed - war, conflict, healing, secrets - but these three will come to find that their similarities are as deep a bond as was ever formed. The vast desert calls and the whispers of changelings beckon. Cultures have risen and fallen across the land but some things remain constant even as everything is about to change.
"good but not the best"
A greedy father. A beautiful daughter. A faceless noble. With a word, Aloysius bargains away Angelique's future for a hefty bride-price, and no one, not even Angelique's beloved mother, can save her.
"My 1st time read in this genre was enjoyable."
Gentle, sensual, passionate. Jenny-Wren and Annabel. Magic has woven their lives together. Destiny has bridged their worlds.
"Was this recorded in a bathroom?"
