Praise for the Sholan Alliance series:
"Series fans will have a field day (or two) reading this delightful, but complex tale with multiple subplots." --Midwest Book Review
"Dark Nadir is full of fast-paced adventure and has more alien species that the Star Wars cantina! Fans of Lisanne Norman's Sholan Alliance series will love this newest installment. Science fiction catnip." --B&N Explorations
"Norman expands the exciting concepts of her first book into an extraordinary look into an alien culture, developing a rich variety of subplots that will leave you desperate to find out what happens next." --Romantic Times Magazine
"Norman is a masterful storyteller, and this is a gripping story." --Kliatt
"Lisanne Norman handles her material superbly--knowing just when to ease up on drama and go for humor." --Starlog Magazine
"This is a big, sprawling, convoluted novel sure to appeal to fans of C.J. Cherryh and others who have made space adventure their territory." --SF Chronicle

The second book, Fortune's wheel, takes us aboard the Khalossa and ultimately to Shola where Carrie must learn what it means to be leska to a Sholan male and member of the telepath guild.
Now in Fire Margins, this author has hit her stride. Full of wonderful ideas like gods and goddesses that were once ordinary people, and viruses that mutate DNA to produce Sholan/Human hybrids, Fire Margins is a book to keep and return to. I loved it. I particularly liked the way the God Vartra was (1500 years ago) Doctor Vartra, a Sholan geneticist with a psychic gift for making his genetic experiments "work" the way he wants them to, not the way nature "says" they shouldn't.
When you buy this (you are, going to buy this) set aside plenty of time, because you will not want to do anything else until you finish it.
