book Þ Part One of the Okal Rel Saga Å Lynda Williams

Ts love Hot headed Reetion pilot Ann learn that true love has a price And Von the sword dancer and Courtesan is somehow the key to it all First book of the character driven science fiction series called The Okal Rel Sag The Courtesan Prince is a space adventure charged with sexual energy and ambiguity Though not heavily laden with technology it is clear that Williams possesses a strong technical mind As a writer and computer programmer I enjoyed the references to blits and other subtle touches that leant to greater believability I look forward to reading of the Okal Rel series

The Courtesan Prince Part One of the Okal Rel Saga The Okal Rel SagaP to in the last 200 years What they discover will threaten their own civilization Di Mon Sevolite king maker aristocrat and champion for his beleaguered house under Sword Law finds the one thing he's avoided at all cos The author was generous enough to send me this copy of my introduction to the Okal Rel universe and I'm grateful that she did The story is entirely self contained and a delightful high energy space opera with overtones touching on social ineuality racial stereotypes personal privacy and social norms of violence A wonderful middle ground between the light hearted and thought provoking and surprisingly between science fiction and sword and sorceryI will definitely be seeking out installments
