Synopses & Reviews
The second Novel of the Jaran returns readers to the world of Rhui at a time when the nomadic jaran people, led by Earth-born Tess and her jaran husband Ilya, are sweeping across the planet on a campaign of conquest. But more important is the battle for control which is about to be waged between Ilya and Duke Charles--who is also Tess's brother.
The nomadic tribes of the jaran are uniting the settled cities of their homeland one by one. Their charismatic leader, Ilya Bakhtiian, has his loyal wife by his side, but there is something about her he doesn't know: Tess Soerensen is a human.
Back home, her brother, Charles, led an unsuccessful revolt against the all-powerful Chapalii Empire. Charles s insistence that Tess join him is as strong as Ilya s reluctance to part with his beloved wife and neither considers that Tess may have her own plans for the future. As three fiercely independent spirits struggle for a solution, the fates of both the human race and the jaran hang in the balance."
