About this title:

Synopsis: The Quantum Rose is the story of Kamoj Argali, the young ruler of an impoverished province on the backward planet Balumil. To keep her people from starving, she has agreed to marry Jax Ironbridge, the boorish and brutal ruler of the prosperous neighboring province. But before they can be wed, a mysterious stranger from a distant planet arrives on government business in the wake of interstellar war. He sweeps in and forces Kamoj into marriage, throwing her world into utter chaos. This interplanetary adventure, Beauty and the Beast with a science fiction twist, focuses on a compelling love triangle while also covering the clash of very different cultures and an approach to war that science fiction has almost never considered.

Review: The beautiful young noblewoman Kamoj Quanta Argali rules a declining province on a distant planet that has lost the high technology of its original colonists. To save her people, Kamoj has contracted to marry Jax Ironbridge, the moody, unpredictable ruler of a prosperous land. Then a mysterious stranger from another world proposes a marriage that neither honor nor law will allow Kamoj to refuse.

The Quantum Rose is the sixth novel in the acclaimed Saga of the Skolian Empire, following the novels Primary Inversion, Catch the Lightning, The Last Hawk, The Radiant Seas, and Ascendant Sun. This intelligent, entertaining series combines space opera, hard SF, future history, military SF, and romance in a rare and potent blend. The Quantum Rose is an interplanetary adventure, but the space-opera and hard-SF elements are less prominent, as the plot focuses on a compelling and complicated love triangle, the clash of very different cultures, and an approach to war that SF has almost never considered.

A Nebula Award finalist, Catherine Asaro has won the Analog Readers' Poll, the Sapphire Award, and the Homer Award. In addition to the Saga of the Skolian Empire, she has written the near-future SF novels The Veiled Web and The Phoenix Code. --Cynthia Ward
