When the forces of Haffat the Conqueror lay siege to the independent city of Ghezrat, the city's elite fighting force of father-daughter "Dyads" channels the power of their earth-goddess Denota against the enemy's lion god Axtekeles in a desperate attempt to preserve their freedom. Set in a world reminiscent of ancient Greece during the Alexandrian conquests, this first novel starts slowly but gathers in momentum and intensity as it reaches its dramatic, but not unforeseen, conclusion. Richly detailed and vividly imagined, this belongs in larger fantasy collections.
