Synopses & Reviews
Julie E. Czerneda's 1997 debut, A Thousand Words for Stranger, was the first novel of the Trade Pact Universe-an instant best-seller, Science Fiction Book Club Editor's Choice and Locus Recommended First Novel. Book two, Ties of Power, further established the author's reputation as a master of vivid alien worlds-and had fans clamoring for the third book in the trilogy.
Now comes the final chapter: To Trade the Stars. The stage is set for a possibly cataclysmic confrontation in non-space-and the Speaker for the Clan Council and her human mate are about to find themselves in the heart of the conflict....
The third and final novel of this series opens as Sira, now speaker for the Clan Council, and her life partner, the human telepath Jason, try to forge a life free of the Clan and the Drapsk, a race determined to claim Sira and their Mystic One. Their hope seems to vanish when they are caught in a conflict between the Drapsk and a mysterious race that dwells in the M'hir. (June)
