"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
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.
