Marya--the scholarly priestess-healer. Her integrity and quick intelligence have singled her out for a dangerous task. Roke--Knight Captain of the Tersha. His quiet demeanor hides deadly secrets. He disturbs her peace of mind. She disrupts his life, divides his loyalties and his heart.
Their meeting will change worlds.
Traveling has always frightened Marya, but when the Ktar chooses her to protect the heir on his confirmation journey, she fights panic. A prophecy concerning the heir's death, ominous dreams of a mysterious city, and news that one of the heir's companions will betray him all point to disaster.

Unfortunately, the discovery of the assassin's identity is only the beginning. His menace pales in comparison to the ancient evil lurking in the mountains. When Marya is trapped and the men with her enslaved, she is faced with two choices: surrender to the alien being who offers her power, or ally with the handsome assassin she sought to thwart. One way she loses her soul, the other she may lose her heart.

Review:  Marya is a high-priestess that tutors the Ktar’s son.  She gets a message from the oracle that someone  they trust will betray them on the journey to  the heir's confirmation. She takes her two adopted sons and body guard, Jovan’s best friend Liam, three guards and Roke  a Tersha Knight.  Feren one of her sons also has prophesy dreams and he dreams of a world of women, in a city of perpetual sun and for some reason it’s frightening.
This book was so good once I started didn’t want to stop. All of the characters were intriguing, the main story line was amazing and the coinciding and minor plots were just as intriguing. There were twists and turns around every corner and towards the end i even got a bit of romance. There is lots of action and the worlds are awesome.  I highly recommend this book to any one that loves a good fantasy. I can’t wait for the next one.  
Recommendations: If you like a story with no sex, very intense characters, lots of hot men, Other worlds, women dominated society, Aliens, and a happy for  now but also a cliffhanger  ending this is a must read!
