A young Elvish woman deals with
her identity in this strong beginning to what promises to be a great series, the Steelflower Chronicles. The setting is well developed and the characters vivid. Some issues are resolved, but enough questions remain to leave you wanting more.

Kaia Steelflower, shunned and exiled as a child because she had no magical power, becomes a thief and assassin. When she picks the pocket of a barbarian, she steals an object that she can't get rid of. Unbeknownst to her, Darik, a royal heir from her homeland, is using this pendant to track the woman he believes is his mate. Kaia refuses to admit there's a connection between them, but Darik will not leave her, and he gets entangled in her perilous adventures. (SAMHAIN, Sep., 320 pp., $16.00)
