In the continuing saga that began with the acclaimed Primary Inversion, star-crossed lovers Sauscony and Jaibriol, each the heir to an interstellar empire, become entangled again in the machinations of the Skolian Empire. Having faked their own deaths and secretly married, they are beginning to pick up what’s left of their lives in exile on a deserted planet with their children. But when interstellar war erupts, Jaibriol is snatched away to be the unwilling ruler of the Highton Aristos. Sauscony must fight her way at the head of an invading space fleet to rescue him from his own empire. With much of interstellar civilization poised on the brink of destruction, it is the devotion of these two lovers, their sacrifices and their heroism, that might just found a new order. That, and their teenage son, who is the genetic heir to a legacy of pain he must rise above.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Catherine Asaro’s most ambitious novel to date…Hard SF fans will revel in the numerous brilliant ideas extrapolated from physics and genetics…All will find The Radiant Seas bursting with fascinating characters and subplots, and will quickly discover they can’t put the novel down.”


  • “This action-packed novel is chock full of love, valor, and sacrifice in the face of a ruthless enemy. If you’re in the mood for rousing adventure, glittering (sometimes literally!) larger than life characters, gripping human drama, and a plot that holds surprises right up to the end, The Radiant Seas is for you.”

    Romance Reader

  • “Fields’ narration supports mood without exaggeration…Her style is steady and even, with snatches of sardonic humor, and a strong sense of duty and responsibility underlying the characters’ relationships and social roles.”


  • “Asaro’s mix of romantic intrigue and large-scale dynastic SF should have a broad appeal and belongs in most libraries’ SF collections.”
