Lladrana is a world beset by evil,
and the only solution seems to be
to summon help from Earth, known
as Exotique Terre to the Lladranans. Instead of the powerful warrior they
were expecting, however, they get grad student Marian Harasta.

Accompanied by her newly sentient hamster, Tuck, Marian is first apprenticed
to the sorcerer Bossgand and then to Jaquar, through whom she learns that she possesses great power on Lladrana
as a weather sorceress. Marian is determined to go back to Earth, though, to help her brother Andrew, who suffers from multiple sclerosis.

Marian is a fantastic heroine, both fiercely intelligent and independent, as well as willing and able to stand up for herself and what she wants. Her relationship with Jaquar may be tempestuous and quickly established, but it rings true nonetheless. The plot is a trifle predictable, but the brisk pacing and intriguing characters and setting more than make up for it. This book will enchant readers who enjoy strong heroines. (Feb., 416 pp., $13.95)
