This review is from: Fortune's Wheel (Sholan Alliance Novels) (Mass Market Paperback)
The story of Carrie and Kusac continues in Fortune's Wheel. Carrie is insecure in her love of the cat-like alien Kusac, and her fragile sense of self worth risks both their lives when she tries break their telepathic "Leska" link. Kusac knows the danger as she does not, but is determined not to pressure her.
Kusac and Carrie go aboard the Khalossa, a huge Sholan warship/survey vessel, where Carrie meets lots of new Sholans. They are a caring people and welcome her, but her own people (especially her father) are bigoted and xenophobic. They do not understand her need to be with Kusac and make her begin to feel their relationship is wrong and twisted.
This book is like no other sci-fi I have read. Alien romance is hardly new, but Lisanne's story of telepathic aliens, and the bonds of love created between Sholan and Human, is simply excellent. I couldn't put the book down. If I had one bad thing to say about it, it's this: The book is too long! So much happens in this story, it could easily have been made into two books.
Buy it now, you won't be disappointed.
