Two minds united against a common foe. Two hearts afraid to show their love:
Long ago Tamarith fell in love with a man she can never have, and is convinced she will never love another. However, she cannot help but be intrigued by a handsome stranger whose psychic powers exceed even her own.
Vidarh seeks only to find his true purpose in life and to win the regard of his father, who eschews his son’s psychic abilities. Thrown together by a common threat to their planet, then torn apart by an evil greater than any they could have imagined, can Vidarh save the lovely Nifl woman who has captivated him, before it is too late?
Will Tamarith and Vidarh overcome the deadly enemy who threatens to destroy all they know and love? Will they find the happiness they both seek? Or are they fated to live their lives alone?
This is a lovely and flowing read! It has wonderful characters, a unique futuristic planet, lots of action and a touching romance.
Tamarith is lovely and strong but shy since she has withdrawn into herself after losing the man she loved. Vidarh is a wonderful, kind, strong and loyal young man. He has developed and improved his psychic skills on his own as his family doesn’t encourage him and he is confused about where he fits in his community. As Tamarith and Vidarh fight several threats to their planet, they are drawn together by their strengths and vulnerabilities!
The story is fast paced and filled with interesting action: traveling some beautiful but difficult terrains, facing a deadly virus, and battling evil alien slavers. The psychic powers add an exciting dimension and are an integral part of the plot and romance. The story jumps into action from the very beginning and keeps you engaged to the end! The characters include Jestine and Dahll (Tamarith's first love) who were the heroine and hero from Ms. Lyn’s first book, Starquest. Although this book stands well on its own I definitely want to read Starquest now too! I encourage you to pick up the series for exciting and enjoyable reading.
