The award-winning author returns to Samaria in this richly romantic tale that begins where Archangel left off. In that time, the women who craved the attention of angels were known as angel-seekers, a term used with awe by some--and scorn by others.
There is only one Jenna Starborn . . . A baby harvested from the gen-tanks on the planet Baldus. A girl scorned by the only family she has ever known. A woman bold enough to seek her own way, strong enough to stay true to herself, and brave enough to follow her heart - wherever in the universe it may lead her . . .
On a planet of barren beauty, two religions—as different as sun and shadow, joy and grief—are bound together by death.... A serial killer is stalking the priestesses of both sects—and Interfed Agent Cowen Drake must immerse himself in an unfamiliar world of stark spirituality to catch the killer. A world that will trap him between opulence and sacrifice, between desire and duty, and between two extraordinary women—one who could become the killer’s ultimate victim.
GOD IS ANGRY The severest storms ever recorded are ripping Samaria apart. Desert has become swamp, hurricanes howl over ferocious seas. The peoples of a once simple world have turned against their centuries-old faith, embracing new technology, squabbling over land, hopelessly repeating history all over again. The leaders of Samaria - the archangels and Oracles - look on helplessly. Where once they could talk to the heavens, they are now greeted with a terrible silence. It is up to godless Caleb, who dreams of flying like the Angels, to discover the incredible cause of the chaos . . .
And so it came to pass... Through science, faith and force of will, the Harmonics carved out for themselves a society they perceived as perfect. Diverse peoples held together by respect for each other and the prospect of swift punishment if their laws were disobeyed. Fertile land that embraced a variety of climates and seasons. Angels to guard the mortals and mystics to guard the forbidden knowledge. Jehovah to watch over them all... Generations later, the armed space cruiser Jehovah still looms over the planet Samaria, programmed to unleash its arsenal if peace is not sustained. Bu tan age of corruption has come to the land, threatening that peace and placing the Samarians in grave danger. Their only hope lies in the crowning of a new Archangel. The oracles have chosen for this honour the angel named Gabriel and further decreed that he must first wed a mortal woman named Rachel. It is his destiny and hers. And Gabriel is certain that she will greet the news of her betrothal with enthusiasm and a devotion to duty equal to his own. Rachel, however, has other ideas...
For the Rider Wen, peace in Gillengaria has only brought despair. Plagued by guilt for failing to protect her king, Wen has fled the royal city and given herself the penance of a life of wandering, helping strangers in need, making sure they remain that: just strangers. Until the day she helps a terrified young woman abducted by an overeager suitor. The girl, she discovers, is the daughter of one of those who rose against the dead king, and is now heir to the great estate known as Fortune. Once she has delivered her safely home, Wen wants nothing further to do with the girl or her family. But fate has other plans. For behind the walls of Fortune, Wen will fine her future - and she will finally confront the ghosts of her past...
