In the city of Inverham, a small band of rebels fights against the controlling class of nobs whose rule is enforced by nobguards. Spark, a young woman, is an experienced fighter but inexperienced with love. When mystery man Tor joins the gang, Spark is swept away by her love for him and is delighted when he is attracted to her. But Tor has secrets that will test Spark's love and their very lives.

Skillful writing makes this fantasy fresh and exciting. Spark and Tor narrate the story in alternating chapters, adding extreme sensuality and deep emotion. Wonderful language and layers of detail make this more than just a story about sex and draw the reader into a new world. (dl $5.20)
