Shelves: sci-fi, fantasy
Funnily enough, this fantasy sci-fi felt like a version of an early (read good, but dated) Sharon Green novel, only LBGT centered. It came on my radar recently (via SF Signal, I think) as an excellent example of 19803-1990s lesbian sci-fi fantasy (of the Darkover style so popular during this time period). I'm glad it did, because I enjoyed it. The romance is colored by willful miscommunication (somewhat culturally based, making it a bit more forgivable than Sharon Green's examples of this type). ...more

This was better than I imagined. A sweeping fantasy with sci-fi elements and romance. In a way it reminded me of When Women Were Warriors The Warrior's Path, though not as beautiful. I was surprised how much the romance played a part of the story. Sometimes a romance can be swept under the rug in a fantasy book with a good amount of world building. This was not the case, and for that I am thankful.
This was not the easiest book to read, having to learn new terms, people and places. However it wa

I really struggled with this. The blend between fantasy and sci-fi didn't really work for me and around the 50% mark it started to get tedious. I only finished it because I wanted to know what Elana would be doing in the end.

Great characters, in an interesting world with a Sci-Fi, Fantasy feel to it, it had a good balance of action and romance between Diana and Elana.
There's also the interesting underlying story between the four entities involved, You have The Amazons, who are ostensibly working for the Terran Empire, on planet Aggar and dealing with the Council of Aggar who guide the development their society, and finally theres the Ramains King who with the capture of a Terran pilot and ship intends to shift the b

The world-building here is exceptional. The societies, cultures, philosophies, political systems and magical abilities are all thoroughly developed and combine to paint a very clear picture of a place my imagination has never before visited. The world has its share of darkness, but Ms. Wolfe still manages to fill it with optimism, hope and beauty.

The relationship between Diana and Elana is, for the most part, wonderful to follow. They have undeniable chemistry, and the slow evolution of friends

This book was an excellent read! I've never gotten into fantasy or sci-fi books before but the writing was so strong I was hooked and couldn't put the book down. The author wove an interesting tale that was a good balance of character development and action. The story took its time and I felt I could really sink into the world but the book itself never felt slow. I loved getting to know the characters as they got to know each other and the writing felt poetic and descriptive but not overly so ...more

I enjoyed the world building and character building of the story, but I had a hard time with the combination of fantasy and sci fi. We get "aliens" that can use space travel, but still use bows and arrows. We have lasers, but still use swords. It was a bit disjointed and confusing. But I loved the relationship between Diana and Elana. I didn't feel like the relationship was a checkbox for a lesbian couple; it felt like the build up you might find in any straight romance, which is the best way to ...more

Most authors struggle to create a convincing set for their characters to play upon. Chris Anne Wolfe managed to develop entire worlds and do a grippingly convincing job of it. I am in awe, humbled by this; my most favourite book to date.

I enjoyed the story. The writing was decent and I felt Wolfe did a good job with the world building.
Ariel Banister
Beautiful book. Written with delightful detail. I love the essence of the story. Great to read about healthy lesbian relationships that are inspiring to me. The world of Aggar is awesome.
