by Jean Stewart
Fans of Return to Isis and Isis Rising will relish the third book in this memorable series. Whit, Kali, Lilith, and company return in another lusty tale of high adventure and passionate romance among the Freeland Warriors. The evil sorceress, Arinna Sojourner, has evaded capture and now threatens the very survival of the new colony of Isis. As Whit and Kali, prepare to do battle with a seemingly unbeatable foe, Danu makes her own plans to avenge a beloved friend’s death at Arinna’s hands. Eventually, high in the Cascade Mountains, they will face Arrina’s terrifying magical powers.
Once again, Stewart weaves a rich tapestry of an all-women’s society in the twenty-first century, bursting with life—lovers, villains, heroines, and a peril so great it forges a bond between all the diverse women of this unforgettable place called Isis.
Originally published by Rising Tide Press 1995.
