About this title

Synopsis:

The second book in the Starbridge Chronicles, Sugar Rain relates the stories of Thanakar and Charity Starbridge during the revolution that ended the first book in the series, Soldiers of Paradise. The generations-long winter has drawn to a close, and with it the power of the tyrannical Starbridge theocracy that maintained order during the years of hunger. But a cruelly pragmatic priest has set the stage for a new faith, and even those who defy him seem fated to play out roles that will inevitably bring it to pass. As Thanakar struggles in exile to find safe harbor for his adopted family, Charity Starbridge undertakes a mythic journey, passing through various underworlds to join him. Sugar Rain was a finalist for the Locus Reader Poll Award.

From Library Journal:

Two high-caste lovers dare to circumvent their predestined futures as the harsh decades of winter give way to the corrosive spring rains that signify violent social change for the great city of Charn. Reflecting the cultures of India and Southeast Asia in its exotic atmosphere and fatalistic philosophy, Park's sequel to Soldiers of Paradise ( LJ 8/87) celebrates the struggle of individuals to remain free in a world without choices. Highly recommended.--
