Praise for the Sholan Alliance series: "Series fans will have a field day (or two) reading this delightful, but complex tale with multiple subplots." --Midwest Book Review "Dark Nadir is full of fast-paced adventure and has more alien species than the Star Wars cantina! Fans of Lisanne Norman's Sholan Alliance series will love this newest installment. Science fiction catnip." --B&N Explorations "Norman expands the exciting concepts of her first book into an extraordinary look into an alien culture, developing a rich variety of subplots that will leave you desperate to find out what happens next." --Romantic Times Magazine "Norman is a masterful storyteller, and this is a gripping story." --Kliatt "Lisanne Norman handles her material superbly--knowing just when to ease up on drama and go for humor." --Starlog Magazine "This is a big, sprawling, convoluted novel sure to appeal to fans of C.J. Cherryh and others who have made space adventure their territory." --SF Chronicle
