Overview
Deep in the sun-drenched desert, priestess Ginger-Sun carries the power of shape mages. And whispers abound: Is she descended from the beloved Sunset Goddess, or are her nighttime rituals filled with wickedness? Ginger herself is uncertain, until a stranger is left for dead at her feet.
"Thence her magic begins to burn."
Fate makes Ginger the stranger's wife and therefore a target for those who would murder this man to crown another--and force her magic into twisted ferocity. For unless Ginger masters her dark powers, violence will rein in Taka Mal--and in her soul.

Nebula-winner Asaro offers a tasty mix of love, action and intrigue in this romantic fantasy set in the same world as The Misted Cliffs (2005). Ginger-Sun, an innocent young priestess in the Dragon-Sun temple outside the village of Sky Flames, finds her loyalty to her people torn when a mysterious stranger is found badly injured outside of town. Using the fire opal gem her foreign grandfather gave her long ago, she’s able to heal the stranger, a handsome soldier named Darz Goldstone who comes from the “splendorous city of Quaaz.” But because such magic is taboo, Ginger-Sun is found guilty of witchcraft. Rescued from a terrible death by fire, Ginger-Sun must leave everything she knows and, with the guidance of a vision of the Dragon-Sun, trust that marrying Darz—and learning to accept her magical ability—is the right thing to do. Once again, Asaro skillfully blends romance with a solid fantasy scenario. (July)
