Publisher's Summary

Schism (Triad, Book I) is the tenth novel in Catherine Asaro's multiple-award-winning Skolian saga, and represents an excellent entry point into the series. An epic story of how the Ruby Dynasty reached maturity, Triad, divided into two books, reveals how a war of galactic proportions first explodes between two great empires.

Schism is how it all began, harkening back to the early years of the Skolian Empire, back to the beginning of the war between Skolia and the Euban Traders. Twenty-three years have passed since the fateful vote in the Skolian Assembly that Roca missed in Skyfall. It created the first open hostility between Eube and Skolia, which has only deepened in the ensuing years.

Now Eube senses an opportunity, for strife has riven the first family of the Skolian Empire. Sauscony, the daughter of Roca and Eldrinson, is ready to seek her fortune as an officer-in-training in the Skolian military. When her father forbids her to undertake such a dangerous path, a rupture develops as Soz chooses duty over family. Eube hopes to make this divide permanent, leaving the Empire ripe for conquest. And they're willing to kill anyone to make it happen.

Loved it except...

"Psion" has a silent "P" !!!

Another great story in a wonderful universe, but I cringed every time I heard the "puh-sion", and in this universe that makes for a lot of cringes. Still, very worth the listen.

Too much information

Good for Skolian fans and I am one vibrator does go on and on about Ruby Dynasty attributes and we really just want the plot.

Kept me interested. Great series

FIRST. I like the narrator but PLEASE say the word psion correctly! The "P" is silent. It is Sy-On NOT Pah-Sy-On." I found the mispronunciation really, really painful and distracting throughout the book. This is a story about Shannon, Soz, and more of the Ruby dynasty. Compelling series. I just bought the next one.
