About this title

Synopsis:

In 2002, Catherine Asaro won the Nebula Award for The Quantum Rose, the sixth novel in her Saga of the Skolian Empire. This very same novel was also named Best SF Novel by the Romantic Times. Schism: Part One of Triad is the tenth novel in this multiple award-winning series, and represents an excellent entry point into the series.

For Schism harkens back to the early years of the Skolian Empire, back to the beginning of the war between Skolia and the Euban Traders. Twenty-three years have passed since the fateful vote in the Skolian Assembly that Roca missed in Skyfall. It created the first open hostility between Eube and Skolia, which has only deepened over the ensuing years.

Now, Eube senses an opportunity, for strife has riven the first family of the Skolian Empire. Sauscony, the daughter of Roca and Eldrinson, is ready to seek her fortune as an officer-in-training in the Skolian military. When her father forbids her to undertake such a dangerous path, a wedge is formed as Soz chooses duty over family. Eube hopes to make this permanent, a divide that will leave the Skolian Empire ripe for conquest. And they're willing to kill anyone to make it happen.

Revel in the latest adventure of this Nebula Award-winning series.

From the Inside Flap:

Praise for the multiple-award-winning Saga of the Skolian Empire:
"Asaro's Saga of the Skolian Empire has quietly become one of the most interesting, ambitious, and popular science-fiction series since Dune."--Romantic Times

"Asaro has quickly gained a reputation as a writer of first-rate rip-roaring adventures."--SF Site

"Intrigue, drama and romance converge in nebula winner Asaro's latest Skolian Empire adventure, an enthralling stand-alone that fills in the early history of the empire."--Publishers Weekly on Skyfall

"The Moon's Shadow is superior space opera, with a level of realism and psychological depth that amply rewards readers who prefer their entertainment well seasoned with sharp intelligence. Asaro succeeds in giving readers a rewarding look into her elaborate and colorful fictional universe, and in leaving them with the desire to soon visit it again."-Pamela Sargent, SciFi.com

"This latest installment blends dynastic intrigue with theoretical physics to create a story that will appeal to fans of hard sf as well as grand-scale storytelling."--Library Journal on Spherical Harmonic
