Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "Asaro takes care to choreograph the major confrontations for maximum clarity and excitement. The novel also contains a good deal of speculation about cybernetics and faster-than-light physics. The denouement makes it clear that Primary Inversion can only be the first novel of a series, a discovery that should please most fans of tough-minded space adventure." --San Francisco Chronicle "Impressive new novel.The science fictional concepts are both elegant and piquant, and the storytelling is absolutely brilliant." --Romantic Times (4-1/2 out of 5 stars).

Inhaltsangabe: Living in exile on a deserted planet, Sauscony and Jaibriol, each the heir to an interstellar empire, become entangled in the machinations of the Skolian Empire. Interstellar war erupts and Jaibriol is snatched away to be the unwilling ruler of the Highton Aristos. Sauscony must lead an invading space fleet to rescue him from his own Empire-without revealing that they are married. 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 forge a new order.
Rezension: Sauscony of Skolia and Jaibriol of the Highton Aristos are truly star-crossed lovers: They are the heirs to interstellar empires that are implacable, age-old enemies. When they seek to save their secret relationship in an exile disguised as death, they disturb the delicate balance of power among Skolia, Aristo, and Earth. Interstellar war erupts, empires rise and fall, and it looks as though the Highton Aristos may recover first, with their dark lust for conquest intact.
The Radiant Seas follows the critically acclaimed novels Primary Inversion, Catch the Lightning (the 1997 Sapphire Award winner), and The Last Hawk as the fourth of a proposed seven novels in the Saga of the Skolian Empire, an exceptionally well-written and well-plotted series that mixes space opera, future history, hard SF, military SF, and romance. By internal chronology, The Radiant Seas is the direct sequel to Primary Inversion. It is also Catherine Asaro's most ambitious novel to date. Fans of the earlier books will find The Radiant Seas less focused on romantic aspects, and readers new to the series may find this novel starts slow, but the complex story is always clear and soon picks up speed. Hard SF fans will revel in the numerous brilliant ideas extrapolated from physics and genetics (the author is a physicist), while readers uninterested in science will find the novel unmarred by chunky speculative-science digressions. All will find The Radiant Seas bursting with fascinating characters and subplots, and will quickly discover they can't put the novel down. --Cynthia Ward
