Ht they were going to have that epic battle against the Zarn and use their Kersh to kill him but I guess I should be glad they didn t have to I m not convinced they won t have to do it eventually thoughOverall a good book I will read by Diana Rivers at some point Enjoying this series thoroughly I like the way the author weaves explanations of the new world into the story with a purpose Even the writing of the story has a reason connected with the world I could not decide whether I like the main character or not but that made Sair that much interesting i loved this book and the hadra series so much i read ourney to zelindar first though chronologically it is the third in the series but it was written first i read daughters of the great star next it s first chronologically written second i m ordering them through interlibrary loan and since they don t come uickly i get to enjoy the anticipation of their arrivali love the women the characters their special powers as daughters of the great star and their oining with the Witches and the travelling people to learn from each other and support each other and to face the threats from their culture and to begin to make a life together as tribes of loving powerful womenHIGHLY RECOMMEND.

One of my favorites read in 2019 I wanted to read this bc I haven t read a whole ton of older lesfic This book was published in 1987 so not exactly ancient but still older than my usual And it s kind of obscure so I was delighted to see my library system had it Anyways it s kind of a lesbian feminist utopian fantasy sort of thing featuring a tribe of horse riding women though they aren t nomads like I thought at first who live without men and love one another and possess magical powers through the GoddessSo you get a lot of peaceful utopia type passages with our MC Sair living
