“In space, no one can hear you scream," announces Tattle, foreshadowing where they landed. “We're in K. M. TOLAN'S science fiction ROGUE DANCER.”
“Roses are red. Violets are blue. BLADE DANCER came first. This is book two.”
“Ah, yes, Mikial Haran is back, a savior of her people, previously chosen to defend them from potential human encroachment that did not happen. Heroine in waiting? Mikial discovers Suria has undermined her. Does this foredoom? Suria continues to discredit Mikial, hence the rising belief she’s not the savior might get her arrested. This smacks of treachery! To make things complicated, to avoid civil war, she places herself under the shield of the most powerful of the Qurl Holdings, the Holding of Kinset. However, to tangle the woes, she is accused of murder and flees Kinset. Oh, what a muddled web has been woven.”
“Roses are red. Violets are blue. Trouble is brewing. Whatcha to do?” Wrye skims a chapter or two. “Listen to this, while trying to recoup, she has a vision. Prophecy? The mental mirage is that of a spaceship arriving in the desert at the ruins of an ancient civil war." Reads and then sing-songs, "Roses are red. Violets are blue. She gathers together,,,an unlikely crew.”
“So true, m’Blooming friend, and she plans on using the White Spear, a gruesome ancient weapon to destroy the trespasser. Only all is not what it appears. Da da da daaaaaaaaaaaaa!”
“Roses are red. Violets are blue. Tattle do you see? A bit of romance, too?”
“Naughty? Risky? Steamy? True? Plus so much more. This fast-paced story takes us from fierce combat to ruins to cascading waterfalls, spanning emotions, testing friendships, and the understanding that a repeat of history foretells a disastrous future. Quell the beat of my now aerobic heart.”
“Roses are red. Violets are blue. This sounds so good. Give us another clue.”
“No more for you, Wrye m’Scribe. One more book awaits for leaping sake!”
“Ah, this geography is quite familiar, don’t ya think?” Tattle crouches, fear encroaching her demeanor.
Looking at the pages and the fabulous cover, he croons, “Roses are red. Violets are blue. Quite talented authors...for certain these two.”
“Being such dear close friends we are a bit biased, but it does allow us to know all about the sci-fi/fantasy romance SNAKE DANCE by ANGELICA HART AND ZI." Preening with pride. "Romance will boil on the planet Starling where a complex race of three sects live in an authoritarian system. Elitists of a beastly nature, the Kin, control the stunning and exotic females with the Kiss of Surrender. Vanquished to the outlands, statuesque males of the Asp line are hunted and killed by the vile Kin.” She pulls four or five reeds, places them in her headband to camouflage herself from the Kin.
Hope you enjoyed! Next month an Irish toast to A STRUCTURED AFFAIR by CAROL MCPHEE, ONCE AN OUTCAST by JANE TOOMBS, and MORTAL COIL by JULIE EBERHART PAINTER.
