Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Award-winning author Sharon Shinn returns to the "fascinating world"* of Samaria in a richly romantic tale that begins where Archangel left off. In that time, the women who craved the attention of angels were known as angel-seekers, a term used with awe by some-and scorn by others.

Elizabeth was born to wealth, but circumstances forced her to live as a servant in her cousin's household. Determined to change her life, she travels to the town of Cedar Hills, hoping that an angel will take notice of her, and take her as his own.

Rebekah is a daughter of the Jansai tribe, raised to hate the angels. But when she finds an injured angel near her village, she defies her upbringing to care for him.

In time, these two women, whose paths will cross, will both find what they long for, in surprising-and dangerous-ways.

Synopsis:

Dennis Kleinsmith, November 11, 2007 (view all comments by Dennis Kleinsmith)
Now that she's had five successful books set in the world of "Samaria", I'm truly hoping Sharon Shinn will give us a 'how it all started' volume. While the books are all stand-alone stories, they do reference each other's events and characters and peaks into their pasts. Each novel has been engaging, intriguing and remarkable in it's own way and contribution to the further development of the world in which they take place, so much so that it has made our appetites ravenous to learn it's genesis. If this book lacks anything, it's the frustration that it doesn't go there.
