4.0 out of 5 stars Very imaginative!, 27 Dec 2002
This review is from: Lord of the Dark Sun (Mass Market Paperback)
This is a Sci-Fi romance, that is actioned packed and very imaginative. Piel is very strong in creating a stellar world, full of menace and pirates.
In celebration of their graduation from the Intersystem Academy, Princess Ariana and her friends go on a wild adventure seeking excitement and new worlds, but they get more than bargained for when their ship is attacked by Automons on the edge of the Border Territory. All the males are killed and the females are transported a desolate mining planet, destined to be breeders of the miners. Ariana is claimed by a young miner, who knows few words, and though she knows she must endure this harsh new life, she comes to care for him. However, as time passes she arranges an escape for them, but in the end, they are betrayed by her supposed best friend, and only she escapes. She nearly dies in the journey, though is finally found floating in space, and pregnant.
She tried for years to find the man who fathered her child, for deep in her heart she loved him, but no trace of the mining community was found. When she is on a mission to find him again, she is kidnapped by a pirate, who turned out to be the very man she is seeking. But the young man who touched her heart is no longer. She finds a harder man, who commands a pirate fleet that is a threat to the Intersystem.
As they fight together to destroy to Automons control of mining communities, such as she was taken to had left to be a breeder, she sees there are many facets the Lord of the Dark Sun, but still does not know if she can trust him and his motives for seeking her out.
It is a romance I found hard to put down, even though there was a slight emotional distance in the first part of the book. When you only had Ariana's view the minor's world, it lacks the power the rest of the book has. Ariana's telling you about everything from her naive view was emotionally distant and un-involving. However, as the book took off, when Piel brought her two main characters together for the second time. It is a book that will appeal to romance readers and Sci-Fi people both.
