I’m not sure how to even describe this book as so much happens, and it seems to touch on so many elements, themes, and subjects. It is fantastical and creative, yet very intelligently so . . . I think that the pacing was done well, a nice mix with narrative and dialogue, and in my opinion, the supporting cast of characters were almost more dynamic than the main ones (almost, but not… a great balance) . . . It seems the door could be open for a continuation of the storyline in the future. I for one hope it continues, I’d love to read it! Recommend for fans of sci-fi/fantasy/romance. (5 stars)Lewis Brock, First Peer of the ancient Haute-Forêt family on the planet of First Home has been used to having his own way, so far as women are concerned. But when he is sent as envoy to an obscure and peaceful planet called Circe he meets a woman who will not let him have his own way.Tethyn Claibrook-Merjolaine lives her own vital and useful life on the planet she loves and plans never to leave, but although she clings fiercely to her independence, the appearance of the intriguing and commanding man disturbs her happy and comfortable existence.Over the years rumours about Circe have spread to the other inhabited planets but no one has known exactly what she can do until she decides to make wider contact with First Home, the strongest planet of the solar system. Circe has sensed a distant but approaching threat from a neighbouring galaxy and she has begun to make plans to deal with it.What the envoy does not know is that Circe is a planet which possesses a mind, a planet which observes and thinks, a planet which likes and cares for the humans who live with her. But Circe’s humans are not exactly the same as other people, and Lewis has a lot to learn about Circe and about Tethyn.Tethyn must follow tradition and escort the envoy and his entourage on an expedition to her hidden family home where he will encounter the planet herself, see some of her powers and learn about her past. The envoy is deeply affected by the experience.During the excursion Tethyn admits to herself that she has come to love Lewis although in return she cannot hope for anything other than his desire. But desire is not enough, and when Lewis wants to take Tethyn to First Home, she refuses him.Then personal danger for Lewis arrives and lives begin to alter.Cover by Vila Design
