3.5 (a little spoilerish)

This is one of those times I really wish for half stars or a scale of more than 5. The book isn't really worth a 4 star, IMO, but its better than some books I'm given 3 stars to.

I both really enjoyed and found myself quite frustrated with this book. I liked Kaia. I liked the Barbarian. I adored D'ri. I liked the world and the writing. BUT the book never really goes anywhere. They wander around and do this and then that and then something else, but there is no intent in it. Also, while I understood Kaia's strong reluctance, I got tired of reading it. Worst of all, the hints that all the hardships she'd suffered in her life might have actually been her own fault, based on a misunderstanding that she didn't seek clarification of over a decade is off-putting to say the least.

Despite all that, I'd read more if there was any, but Saintcrow states that she does not intent to continue the story, as "e-piracy killed the series." Which means that this, an incomplete story (though not a cliffie), will always remain so and that makes it kind of a pointless read IMO.

Absorbing right from the very beginning, I ended up reading the entire book in one sitting. Saintcrow turns the traditional 'elvish' model on it's head to give you a completely different glimpse of the genre. The heroine of the book is strong with an underlying vulnerability that makes her more accessable to the reader. This book is not a stand alone story, things heat up just as it ends leaving you desperate for the next installment. It's primary focus is that of the heroine discovering herself and her past which appears to have very different versions depending on who you ask. This book lays the groundwork for the main story arc without leaving you feeling shortchanged. I would definately recommend this to anyone who loves fantasy or strong female lead characters.

Kaia Steelflower goes by many names and certainly many professions; exiled by her people the G'mai for her lack of Power, she instead becomes a mercenary, thief and assassin. Life is fairly straightforward until she steals from the wrong person, but is seems almost that Kaia was compelled to remove the contents found in the pockets of a hairy barbarian and then protect him in a sword fight against the city guards.

On the run, Kaia's "entourage" steadily increases as a missing G'mai prince insists he accompanies her on her travels, as do a lute player, a young thief in training and a twinned G'mai pair. Although Kaia longs to lose these people travelling with her, she has no idea how important they will become to her.

Kaia is a marvellous leading lady; coming to terms with the fact she is now responsible for someone else's safety rather than just her own, initially disbelieving that she really does have Power (and a lot of it) and unwilling to tie herself to the G'mai prince who claims she is his other half. Despite these obstacles, Kaia still intends to pay the blood debt she owes and soon finds herself the target of the deadliest assassins in the country. It's a good job she and a few of her companions are so skilled with their weapons.

The ending of "Steelflower" is rather abrupt and despite the budding relationship between Kaia and G'mai prince Darik do not expect any hot bedroom action (in fact there is none at all in this book). Kaia refuses to believe she is Darik's destined other half (despite all the obvious signs she displays proving she is) yet her exile from G'mailhallan and her conviction that she possesses no Power whatsoever makes her believe she is unworthy of a match.

Having read several other series by Lilith Saintcrow I purchased this from the product description and was utterly drawn in by the story. As ever Ms Saintcrow creates stories with layers like onions; encouraging the reader to tears at times as we become involved with the characters and worlds she creates. Strong lead characters, vivid description, detailed, thoughtful imagery and fast-paced action with hints of mystery soon hook the reader and I went straight to Amazon's shopping cart to find what happens next... however, despite being written several years ago, the rest of the series is not available seemingly due to e-piracy.
This is most definitely a shame and one would expect that has surely been plugged if a technical problem by the on-line publishing companies. If the author's anger refers to plagiarism then she should be reassured that her writing style will ensure that fans reading her stories would most certainly look to the original author for completion of their 'fix'. I will continue to wait, albeit impatiently, for the author's issues to be resolved so that Kaia may solve the riddles and mysteries unfolding at the end on the first book.

I like this author, especially her Dante Valentine books, so I purchased this book without reading much about it.
Warning: This book was written and published years ago, it is NOT a standalone novel, and there have been no further addition to the storyline since its initial release in 2008. - Do not purchase the book unless you dont mind this. It has an open ending, without any of the major plot lines comming to conclusion.

The story is great, the heroine is complex and 3 dimensional. The supporting characters have depths that are hinted at but not really fleshed out. There are 2 major story archs and several underlining smaller ones, only a small portion of which are resolved. - I love the author, but absolutely despise paying money for books that are parts of unfinished series. I would absolutely find it prudent to make the buyer aware of the fact before the purchase. - Thats all.
