"Intrigue, drama and romance converge in Nebula winner Asaro's latest Skolian Empire adventure, an enthralling stand-alone that fills in the early history of the empire."--"Publishers Weekly
""Skyfall (4 1/2 Stars), the latest in Catherine Asaro's excellent Saga of the Skolian Empire, combines hard SF with evocative, personal storytelling. Asaro's saga merges sweeping space opera, military fiction and exhilarating romance. Impeccable world-building, flawless plotting, intriguing characters-there is not a fault to find with this book. "Skyfall is a gift to established fans and the perfect chance for new readers to become addicted to Asaro's unique brand of storytelling."--"Romantic Times
"It takes an intense, intrigue-filled climax before true love's course runs at all smoothly. Chronologically the earliest saga episode, "Skyfall pleases like its predecessors."--"Booklist
"The consistency of Catherine Asaro's Skolian Universe setting allows for the potential for many great and wondrous prequels and sequels, and the thrill of watching consistent and lucid character development is truly a joy in a genre increasingly filled with hackneyed and cliched character stereotypes. Well written prequels are rare gems. Asaro mixes brilliantly designed and conceived characters with a great romantic plot to create an enticing and enjoyable story."--SF
"Catherine Asaro's Saga of the Skolian Empire may be the most important and entertaining science fiction series to originate in the 1990s. Newcomers should start with the ninth novel, Skyfall (2003); it takes place a generation earlier than, and sets the stage for the previous novels."
From the Publisher:
When Kurj, a provincial ruler on a primitive planet, encounters Roca, a mysterious and beautiful woman from the stars, he brings her back to his mountain retreat, but a chance storm strands them in the mountain, igniting an interstellar war and bringing about the birth of the next generation of rulers for the Sklolian Empire. Reprint.
The Birth of an Empire
Skyfall goes back to the very roots of Skolia, showing how a chance meeting on a backwater planet forges a vast interstellar empire. Eldrinson, a provincial ruler on a primitive planet, is plagued by inner demons. But when he meets Roca, a beautiful and mysterious woman from the stars, he whisks her away to his mountain retreat, inadvertently starting a great interstellar war, and birthing the next generation of rulers for the Skolian Empire.
This volume in the Skolian Empire series takes place chronologically first in the massive saga about the Skolia family and their place in the universe.
