I suppose it would make a difference to read the previous two installments-- or as I hear it, two books and prologue in the rewritten version that will be coming out-- however, I'm not entirely certain I care enough to do so.

The cover compares her writing to CJ Cherryh. I don't see it, no matter how many years they've worked together.

Perhaps this sort of story was ingenious when it first came out, however, anyone that's dipped in fandom for long enough will recognize the old hurt-comfort trope o

I enjoyed this series a lot, even though some of the technical stuff seemed quite esoteric and I found it hard to follow. The author did tend to be a little vague on the sexual front, and tended to allude to some injuries so circuitously that I found it hard to fully understand exactly what had been done, although it could be said she was avoiding graphic descriptions. Personally, I would have liked a little more explanation, although overall I understood enough to follow the story.

loved the story. I especially love when sci-fi/ fantasy delve into the ineffable, the spiritual and cosmic realms for which there are no ultimate, quantifiable answers. I suspect this is a series I will hope the author revisits at some point, to update the timelines of these people and their paths.

On October 24, 1988 in Oklahoma City, OK, at a suggestion from SF author C.J. Cherryh, I began writing. I kept writing because two hours after starting, I had to find out what happened. A little over a year later, I was the startled owner of a three book contract based on the rough draft of my first novel.

I've been writing ever since.

What appeals to me about writing in general is the constant chal
