Kundala is Miina's world, created by that Goddess with the help of
the dragons. But Miina is missing, and her people have been
enslaved by the alien V'ornn. Now a savior has come, the Dar
Sala-at, a messiah promised by prophecy yet unlike anyone's
expectations: within the body of a beautiful young woman is the
mind and spirit of a unique Kundalan female who is joined in
mystical partnership with the mind and spirit of Annon Ashera, a
V'ornn male, the last survivor of a noble family. Together the two
adolescents have matured and merged into a new joint identity. Now
their common destiny, and Kundala's, is in their own hands.
In Lustbader's richly imagined saga The Pearl, magic and science
clash on an epic scale. As in the Midkemia novels of Raymond Feist,
the juxtaposition shows that neither is inherently good or evil. It
is the people using magic or science who give them meaning, and
Lustbader has created people you will never forget:
Riane, the Dar-Sala-at; Eleana, the woman she loves twice over;
Kurgan, the V'ornn usurper who raped Eleana and sired her child;
Marethyn Stogggul, Kurgan's defiant sister, an artist who joins the
Kundalan resistance; Marethyn's lover, chief trader Sornnn SaTrryn,
who secretly helps the resistance as well; and the fabulous
Krystren, the Sarakkon woman from the mysterious southern
continent, who comes north on a secret mission and will change the
lives of everyone she meets. All the while, the evil Sauromicians
threaten the world as they seek to use banestones to bind a dragon.
With each new volume, The Pearl has bloomed and ramified like a
gorgeous flowering vine. "The Mistress of the Pearl" is the best
yet, and those who have read the previous books will find new
sources of excitement and enlightenment, but this is also a great
place to begin catching up with the series, as the Pearl shines
