"Will appeal to lovers of epic and romantic fantasy"
Reothe, the last T'En warrior, thought to marry Imoshen,
the last T'En empress, when the Ghebite General and his
warriors invaded their island home of Fair Isle. To insure
that her people would survive, Imoshen married the General
and gave him an heir. In time she came to love Tulkhan and
their marriage was more than a political merger.
Tulkhan and the Empress yearn only for peace so they can
enjoy life but circumstances drive a wedge between them.
Reothe still wants Imoshen and if truth were known, she
loves him in a way she can never love the General. Yet
when Tulkan's half-brother tries to take Fair Isle by
force. Tulkhan, Imoshen and Reothe are forced into an
alliance, using T'En magic and brute force, that might
bring the powerful Ghebite empire to its knees.
This is the third and final novel in "The last T'En"
trilogy and DESPERATE ALLIANCES is as good as it's two
predecessors. Cory Daniels ties up all the loose ends and
answers all the remaining questions so that readers of this
sword-and-sorcery romantic fantasy will feel totally
satiated upon completion of this novel. Ms. Daniels is a
first-class storyteller whose words will appeal to lovers
of epic and romantic fantasy.
