This third novel of the Skolian Empire is a classic tale of power and conflict, with a twist. The leaders of Coba, a kingdom essentially untouched by the influence of the empire, are all women, and men are firmly treated as biologically inferior and subservient. When Kelric, an heir of the imperial family of the empire crashes on Coba, events begin that threaten its political stability and safety. Anna Fields narrates with her usual control, while maintaining the subtlety of the characters and plot. Each of the powerful matriarchs who becomes intrigued by Kelric is powerful but distinct in personality and manner. Fields draws each member of the large cast of supporting characters clearly. She sets a strong pace that supports the intensity of the plot and never lags. J.E.M. © AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 02]
