Tess had been cursed by an accident of birth, cursed to be the sister of the one man honored by the alien conquerors of human-run space. Her brother, Charles Soerensen, the leader of Earth's rebellion, had been given a dukedom after his defeat and now ruled over far-distant worlds. And Tess was his only heir, a position and a responsibility she was not yet willing to assume. So she fled to a world in her brother's domain, a world where--she was soon to discover--the alien conquerors were themselves involved in some covert and dangerous mission. And despite herself, Tess was suddenly forced to become both player and pawn in an interstellar game of intrigue and politics, caught between protecting her brother's interests, and her own growing involvement with Ilya the leader of the nomadic tribe with whom she had taken shelter. But it soon became apparent to Tess that whether Charles or the aliens were the victors here, Ilya and his people were balanced at a crucial point in their history--a point at which they must either learn to adapt to the incursions of more advanced civilizations or, by remaining rooted in their own traditions, face inevitable extinction.

THis is a fantastic easy science fiction novel for people who don't want to get bogged down by heavy overthe top sci-fi. I truely loved this book, its easily written, the story of the Jaran, a nomadic people is fasinating.

The writing is well done and the depth of work needed to create such a complex and interwoven society is incredible. The tension between the two main characters Tess and Ilya is great and adds a kind of love/hate story to the novel as well.

Overall the entire series is fab, and is more of a chick sci-fi then a hard core space style one.
