TIES OF POWER
With each new book, Julie Czernedas storytelling prowess grows by leaps and bounds. In her third book, TIES OF POWER (4.5), she once again picks up the tale of Sira di Sarc, a powerful telepath who challenges the dictate from the Clans ruling council to choose a human as her mate. She knows, however, that the Clan will not let her go without a fight, but neither side anticipates the nature of the battle when it comes. With Sira grievously wounded, its up to Jason to retrieve what was stolen from them, even as Sira herself is swept away by a little-understood race called the Drapsk. Through engaging narrative and a snappy pace, Ms. Czerneda propels her exciting and imaginative adventure to a most satisfying conclusion.
