"The unusual link between Sianna and Kyne will be their salvation or destruction."

Kyne Cathor wants JUSTICE against DiSanti, the man who while attempting to control the kingdom of Dramon has murdered his parents and most recently, his brother. He believes DiSanti's daughter, Laila is responsible for luring his brother to his death while pretending to love him. He doesn't approve of his sister kidnapping DiSanti's daughter, but now that they have her captive, she will be his pawn for justice and pay the price of her treachery.

Sianna DiSanti has been raised at the SISTERS OF LIGHT healers' compound. When she is called home from this secluded life, she hopes for the love of her father and half-sister. Instead, she is shocked to hear her father has arranged her marriage with the prince and while she is still coping with that shock, she is kidnapped. She is shocked when she feels the unusual link between her and Kyne but to keep her half-sister safe and protect herself, Sianna conceals her true identity.

Kyne has always strived for justice but facing the evil DiSanti, he is close to crossing the line into vengeance. To save his soul, he must allow Sianna's love to heal the pain of the past and to be able to accept her despite her father. The obstacles to their love appear insurmountable, with the people and Kyne as well as her own father against her.

I always like a story where there is an added 'link' between the hero/heroine. Kyne and Sianna share a special bond and power from the start that they are aware is unique. Ms. Hendricks portrays the emerging of Sianna from a sheltered, timid 18-year old girl into the confident woman who is able to love and be the strength for her soul mate, Kyne. Kyne's responsibilities and commitments as a Rul [comparable to Medieval Lord] cause him to require reserve when dealing with his captive but his ability to handle this attraction to Sianna causes some conflict as well as outside forces.

We are introduced to the planet Tareth in GEMINI MOON, but if you have not read it, you can read CRYSTAL MOON and gather full enjoyment of the story as the tale is set in a different kingdom on the planet. Once you are done you will want to find the previous story to return to this world. Of course, there is always the hope of another tale of Tareth published in the future?oh, you mean that isn't why they call it a 'futuristic'? Futuristic and Fantasy readers will enjoy this return trip to Tareth.

On Tareth, the small country of Dramon is in the throes of a rebellion. When Sianna DiSanti is called home from the semi-religious order where her father has hidden her since birth, she is eager to know her estranged father and become part of a loving family. His plan to use her as a marriage pawn in his quest for power devastates her. While seeking comfort in the garden, she is mistaken for her half-sister and abducted by her father's enemies.

Kyne Cathor lusts for vengeance against DiSanti, the man who murdered his brother and threw Dramon into turmoil. To draw DiSanti into the open and restore the country to peace, Kyne uses Sianna as bait. Though she proclaims her innocence, Kyne believes she might be pregnant with his brother's child. To keep her half-sister safe and protect herself, Sianna conceals her true identity.

Once at the rebel stronghold, Sianna's gentle, innocent, nature and heroic actions fuel Kyne's growing attraction to a woman he can never have and puts them both in jeopardy.
