The Skolian Empire rules a third of the civilized galaxy through its mastery of faster-than-light communication. But war with the rival empire of the Traders seems imminent, a war that can only lead to slavery for the Skolians or the destruction of both sides. Destructive skirmishes have already occurred, and a desperate attempt must be made to avert total disaster.

When Sauscony Valdoria, linked to the powerful Skolian Web, and the Aristo heir to the evil Trader Empire of Tarnth link minds, they instantly fall in love. However, in order to prevent interstellar war, Sauscony must be either his lover or his killer.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Catherine Asaro, a physicist, has done a fine job of rationalizing her scenario through genetics and psionics, and her hard SF speculations are a neat contrast to the plot’s fairy-tale aspects…A good read and a promising debut for Asaro.”


  • “In an unusually masterful first novel, physicist Asaro combines hard speculative science and first-rate storytelling to look at the galaxy’s distant future…Asaro innovatively blends computer technology and telepathy into the electrifying, action-rich drama she creates. This is one of the best SF first novels in years.”


  • “An imaginative debut that takes off at a frantic pace, with dazzling technology, stirring battles, and mental high jinks…plenty of energy and invention.”

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Dena | 2/20/2014

    " Awesome combination of SF, captivating characters, and complex themes. This is one of the best SF series I have read and I still have more to go. "

    " This is an empire-spanning space opera with lots of interstellar politics and complicated family dynamics and sadistic villains, but the heroine is an adult military professional and the hero a sheltered younger man, which I love (especially given the title of the book, 'cause you don't get a more primary inversion than that in the romance genre--and despite being primarily science fiction this is also a romance). "

    " Good hard science, some romance, lots of political intrigue. My enjoyment was hampered by the fact that I somehow only downloaded 8 parts of 11 - good thing when I went back to redownload, it wasn't checked out, since part 8 ended practically in mid-sentence! "

    " I loved the main character of this series. Very compelling read and highly imaginative. "
