We rated this book:


There is generally a reason you do not see too many successful mixtures of science fiction space operas and high fantasy. This book does not buck that trend and further shows why the two disparate genres do not need to mix. Korinna is a Redseer, a blind priestess who has the power to bend space and time so space ships can travel to planets. She is raised to believe she is the weakest of her order but in reality she is the strongest and is a pawn between different factions. She is sent to an Imperium ship to be used as a weapon. Aster Haran has a vendetta against the Imperium and kidnaps Korinna. The two are drawn to each other while Sahar is sent out by the Imperium to hunt down Aster and bring back Korinna before she decides to imperil the future of the galaxy and the Imperium. || These type of novels I have had issues with from when I was young. It is hard enough to do either one well but it is doubly difficult to blend them together. If this was just a space opera or even better a high fantasy it would have been much better.
