    9/10 Power, love, hate, duty... author Judith Tarr weaves these universal themes into a story both beguiling and cruel, bittersweet for the characters and the reader alike. 9/10 Power, love, hate, duty... author Judith Tarr weaves these universal themes into a story both beguiling and cruel, bittersweet for the characters and the reader alike.

    Generations ago, two empires were united through the union of their respective scions. But the latest incumbent hates one-half of his heritage and so the lines of Sun and Lion are splintering. Unbeknownst to the rulers of the empire, in secret, a Lion heir has been protected and prepared to take back his throne. I found this book heavy going. I struggled to distinguish the differences between the two main characters - Estarion and Korusan - until they met.

I struggled to distinguish the differences between the two main characters - Estarion and Korusan - until they met. Then, I found the book interesting again for about the middle third. But then I found the last portion of the action heavy going. I'm not sure why I struggled with this one - whether the plot was too predictable or the characters too uninteresting. At times, I enjoyed it, but overall it disappointed me.

    This reminded me a bit of Kameron Hurley's The Mirror Empire, even though it's not nearly as a complicated and doesn't have as many characters. Maybe it was just the gates? Not sure. In any case, I had the same feeling reading it - it was too long, I got bogged down, and it took me double the time it probably should've taken to finish it. It is fine if what you want is a story about a king coming to power and figuring out how to incorporate the disparate parts of his kingdom.

There's a lot of sex in here, if that's of interest, but it's full of weird euphemisms (it's a staff or a flag or a banner or something like that which is always standing proudly and ugh).

    This book (and I gather series) reverses the general trend of much fiction centring on white characters. The main character and his family (half of his empire in fact) are black to brown, the other half of the empire appear to be East Asian inspired. The characters are frequently described by themselves and others so it is hard to forget that they are mostly not white, that said there is only a brief mention of the racism that exists, which makes some sense given the book is about the emporer, n This book (and I gather series) reverses the general trend of much fiction centring on white characters.

The sex scenes are brief, sometimes amusing, and could have been done a bit better. Overall I'd recommend it

    I love this author's writing, and the 1st 3 books in this series, so when i saw this one in a 50 cent bin, i snapped it up. Tarr's writing as always sucked me in, and i have read and reread it many times, every time swearing i won't do that again, as she has so many other, better books. And yet this is the one that is RIGHT THERE, on my shelf, so... I love this author's writing, and the 1st 3 books in this series, so when i saw this one in a 50 cent bin, i snapped it up.

    I actually started here. One of my favorites of the entire series. But it was so good I went back and started from the beginning. The entire series does not disappoint altho the conclusion has its problems
