Let your mind be like the eye of the hawk... Destined from birth to serve as protector of the princess Zariya, Khai is trained in the arts of killing and stealth by a warrior sect in the deep desert; yet there is one profound truth that has been withheld from him. In the court of the Sun-Blessed, Khai must learn to navigate deadly intrigue and his own conflicted identity. But in the far reaches of the western seas, the dark god Miasmus is rising, intent on nothing less than wholesale destruction. If Khai is to keep his soul's twin Zariya alive, their only hope lies with an unlikely crew of prophecy-seekers on a journey that will take them farther beneath the starless skies than anyone can imagine. Lush and sensual, Starless introduces us to an epic world where exiled gods live among us, and a hero whose journey will resonate long after the last page is turned.

I love Jacqueline Carey's books, they are always lush and sensuous and full of feminist themes and gender bending characters. Starless is no exception - the story of Khai and his soul's twin, Zariya, the book goes from strength to strength. Starting with Khai's harsh desert training and leading into adventures across a new and exciting world, fans of Carey's other work will love this one. - Shannon (QBD)
