The award-winning author returns to Samaria in this richly romantic tale that begins where Archangel left off. In that time, the women who craved the attention of angels were known as angel-seekers, a term used with awe by some - and scorn by others.
Though the 5th book in the Samaria saga, I got it as my second as this is the sequel to Archangel. I suggest you do so. More of a romance than a fantasy novel but still well written.

Though I had not read the previous 4 books in this series, the story was well put together and wholly engaging on its own merits. Sharon Shinn put together a coherent world with very nicely developed characters. I'm so impressed that I'm going to start at the beginning of the series. Maybe by the time I'm done with the first 4 books, the 6th in the series will be written. I recommend this book as good story telling.

This book is probably my second favorite of this series as it doesn't get mired in the not so well thought out scientific concepts found in the other books. It's a pure and enjoyable romantic tale set in Samaria with second coming of age tale woven through. That said, I find the ending far too abrupt. It could have used a couple more chapters to put a more satisfying cap on Obadiah and Rebbeca's story.
the sorty good as always . however seem to be missing proper ending. no Gloria. no answer from the jonsi . and what baby did Rebecca birth? how did Elizabeth end up? where is the end of the book plz. must be more past ch.33? very disappointed
This is a good addition to the series. Not only did I enjoy the love story but I really was drawn to the narrating for the lead female. It put a smile on my face and made my day. I couldn't wait to hear her again. This is more of a romance than fantasy however it is worth the read. I wonder if we will hear from these characters in the next book in the series.
