“Starcrossed love...”


Description from J Yee smart chick: I am rereading a fascinating book titled "Mystic and Rider" by Sharon Shinn - her characters are very complex, strong willed and smart...

This one's set in a world where some folks who have magical powers are feared... the heroine, Senneth, is what's called a "mystic" with the ability to control fire... and the guy she falls in love with is one of the King's men, a "Rider" - sworn to defend the king, and carry out whatever mission he is sent on - in this case, he is to protect Senneth and her other companions, as they travel around the kingdom and investigate rumors of unrest...
Senneth also happens to be of aristocratic origins originally, and Tayse, the rider hero, is definitely working class, from a family who has generations of Riders who have served the king... and Tayse thinks he is not good enough for Senneth...

    Thank you Wanda – here I go again, using “mysterious beads” in cool colors like purple and black/silver, when the heroine, Senneth, is a “fiery lady” in the novel… and her reluctant love interest Tayse, is one of those guys who are absolutely dependable and competent – both are strong characters, afraid to admit their feelings for each other, as they appear so competent to others… ;)

    Mary, Sharon Shinn is an amazing storyteller, and I highly recommend her books – she wrote succeeding books about Senneth’s friends whom she traveled with in this book – Kirra, another mystic who can shape change, Justin, another king’s Rider, and Cammon, a young mystic who is a “sensitve” and can “read” people’s emotions…
    and forgot to add, this one is #800 – ;)
