About the Author

Kate Elliott lives in Pennsylvania, USA. In addition to the Crown of Stars series, she is co-author of THE GOLDEN KEY.

Reviews

Elliott's elaborate first entry in a projected seven-book fantasy series introduces a once prosperous but now lawless land called the Hundred. Its godlike Guardians, who dispense justice, have disappeared; the eagle-riding Reeves, who have kept the peace, have lost authority; and a mysterious, ruthless new force preys on the towns and inhabitants of the Hundred and neighboring empires. But after years of dissolute behavior, a Reeve named Joss is regaining his will to defend his land. Meanwhile, Outlanders Captain Anji; his resourceful bride, Mai; and his well-trained band of Qin soldiers come to the Hundred by necessity. Elliott (Crown of Stars) crafts complex if not wholly original characters, including strong women who persevere in repressive, nonegalitarian societies. She is equally adept at outlining intricate religions and myths. This promises to be a truly epic fantasy. (Oct.) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

'Accomplished storytelling' SFX 'This is truly epic fantasy' Publishers Weekly

In the land of the Hundred, eagle-mounted Reeves act as guardians of the peace for their people until the murder of one Reeve and the mutilation of her eagle signal the beginning of a secret war against an unknown and malevolent foe. Far to the south, a young woman's unexpected marriage to the captain of an occupying army begins a journey that leads them toward their destiny in the land of Reeves and giant eagles. The author of the acclaimed "Crown of Stars" series launches a new seven-book epic fantasy set in a world of warring clans, restless ghosts, and mysterious, nearly forgotten Guardians. Elliott's skill at building worlds and peopling them with colorful characters and vibrant societies makes this novel an excellent choice for most fantasy collections. [Elliott and fantasy writer Melanie Rawn, see the review of her Spellbinder on p. 55, will be blogging about their joint book tour this fall on the West Coast and in the South.
