Publisher's Summary

A Duchy of Terra spin-off series

The mother, ruler of an entire world. Sent to the heart of an old enemy to build a new peace. The daughter, officer of a deadly warship. Sent to the darkness to find the new enemy hunting them all.

A dozen inhabited worlds of the Kanzi Theocracy and the A!Tol Imperium are ash. Millions of sentients of a dozen species are dead, including humans from the brand-new colonies built under the Imperium's watch. Despite the losses, the strange Taljzi fanatics have been defeated - but everything suggests that more will be coming.

The Empress of the A!Tol has resolved that the cold war between A!Tol and Kanzi must end. She sends Duchess Annette Bond to the heart of the Kanzi Theocracy to negotiate a new alliance.

Elsewhere, Bond's stepdaughter, Morgan Casimir, and the battleship, Bellerophon, are sent into the darkness beyond known space to see what they can learn about the Taljzi.

As they uncover old secrets of new enemies and new secrets of old enemies, the fate of humanity and five dozen other races hangs on the actions of mother and daughter alike!

What i expected

I found it weird that this now seems to be a different series from duchess of terra but I enjoyed the follow up from the last book. I’ve really enjoyed the series (and the pervious one) so far but I’m getting worried the books/story are starting to follow a pattern. I’m looking forward to the next book but if it stays in the same mold I might not be so quick to keep going.

Why do we have to go full progressive in sifi?

4 of the 8 or 9 council are gay or lesbian. All relevant leaders are female. So far 1 of 5 of the children are bi/gay? Do you have to push it this far?

Great story !

The author is awesome the story is great the performance superb . The quality of the download needs some work . I tried the cloud and two different devices . The last few chapters had issues . This is the first time audible has been less than the Best in this regard . To see audible to slip to better than most is disheartening .

Good book but very confusing series title

I cannot find "The light of Terra book 1". It appears they refer to The Dutchy of Terra book 4 as the book 1 but it is unclear. I messaged the Author on Facebook, but while he posts regularly, he didn't bother to reply. The book is good, as good as the others. Not great, but a solid book. Hillary Huber does a great job narrating this series.

This is so mean....

To let us hanging on such a cliffhanger, is real mean! So fill in the rest of this story ASAP!
