If you like character interaction, this book is for you. If you're into large calibre problem solving, this book may not be. SciFi shoot-em-ups are OK as far as they go, but if I've always liked real characters acting and reacting in real ways to the problems presented them. As with many book series, it's best to start with the first book, Turning Point, and read them in order.
In Between the Darkness and the Light, Kusac, a 'feline-like' sholan and the main protagonist, has to cope with the loss of his special telepathic link to Carrie, a human, as well as hide the fact that the sholan kit he's trying to rescue from the Valtegan General, Kezule, is his son. And then there's the rotten apple in the sholan contingency. What are his plans? And why is Kusac so attracted to General Kezule's wife? Especially since he doesn't want to be! Then there's the Telaxaudin who's keeping a real close eye on Kusac. What's his hidden agenda? Things have a real potential for getting out of hand and the results could spell disaster for Sholans and Valtegans alike.
I like how author Lisanne Norman plays characters off of each other in ways that keep the tension high and the reader wondering when the other truckload of shoes is going to drop. For me, it made the book hard to put down and resulted in several sleepless nights.

This novel extends the interspecies...couplings of the previous works to the Valtegans, a non-mammalian species...Nevertheless, the various interspecies...encounters do seem to be driven by the plot rather than being gratuitous affairs. Will Norman extend the...pairings to the TeLexaudins? Is it even possible?
Recommended for all Norman fans and anyone who enjoys tales of personal and interpersonal development in a SF setting.

To start with; I have bought and read all the books in series and I will most likely end up buying one more. That said I find this sries more and more objectionable.
The "Sholan Aliance Series" started very promissing as an interstellar love story between people from two very different species. A story being told very skillfully by the author. The first two books; " Turning Point" and "Fortune's Wheel" are great and describe the true love relationship in that that both Carrie and Kusac are in love with each other. Unfortunetly, starting with the third volume, "Fire Margins" it slides downhill. First out the way side goes the feedelity and loyalty to the other person and it becomes the story of the so called triad a bigamous sex ring. In this volume and the following ones, Carrie becomes an unfaithful wife and gets involved in lesbian sex liasons with other females. Kusac at the same starts sleeping around with other females and is having homosexual relationship with another male. The same story is being repeated for almost all the other males and females from different species. I don't have a problem with real love and monogamous marriage between different races and in this case species. After all if we recognize them as people we can't deny them the right to fall in love. I object however to the blatant antifamily propaganda being spun. In the end of it everybody is having sex with everybody else and anything that's big enough, warm enough, and alive but doesn't climb up on the tree. And it is unfortunate for this story did not have to end up as a pornographic piece. The message that it conveys is that anything that starts as love for each other will deteriorate into a sex orgy. I think Lisanne Norman has a great talent for story telling and missused it.
However if anyone wants tp buy these books it is OK by me, after all I bought them too.

The triad of Kusac, Carrie, and Kaid know that the unrest on Shola will keep them very busy. However, suddenly everything changes when Kusac does the unthinkable and leaves the planet without a word to his two partners. They even wonder if he has turned traitor.
Instead the ruling Brotherhood has assigned Kusac the mission to rescue a Sholan cub held hostage by Valtegan General Kezule. However, instead of success in rescuing the cub, Kusac is captured and his link to his triad partners severed. This makes his people except for loyal Carrie believe he has switched sides but Kusac makes a pact with his deadliest enemy Kezule in an attempt to buy time so he can save his life and that of the child. For behind the scenes orchestrating all the species are the Watchers who do more than idly observe.
The seventh Sholan Alliance tale, BETWEEN DARKNESS AND LIGHT, is an exciting thriller that never slows down yet insures the audience believes in the various species populating these novels. The story line is action-packed yet provides deep insight into Kusac and Kezule. Especially intriguing is the loyalty of Carrie, who in spite of overwhelming evidence believes that her triad mate will one day reveal a greater truth. Series fans will have a field day (or two) reading this delightful, but complex tale with multiple subplots that ultimately tie back to the main theme. Newcomers can read this as a satisfying stand alone, but will find it even better if they start at the beginning with book one (see TURNING POINT).
