Someone is poisoning the heart & soul of Rhadaz, and it is up to the outlander Cray family and their loved ones to stop it. Mortal danger awaits them all--Chris & Ari fight drug dealers in the Carribean, Robyn & Duke Aletto face kidnappers and addiction, Lialla risks execution while spying on a traitor, and Jennifer & Davhan seek clues to economic slavery.
This time, Rhadaz has a great advantage--the Crays know their own history, and will fight to keep a Boxer Rebellion from the shores of their adoptive home. Rhadaz also has a great danger blooming at its heart--the traitor Vulhem has nurtured a Triad--young, amoral wielders of Light magic, hungry for power.
This is classic Emerson, full of great charactization and world-building. The growth of the characters is rare and wonderful in modern adult fantasy novels. Nothing in this world remains the same, and in the end some must pay the ultimate price of freedom. Fantasy fans, THE SCIENCE OF POWER won't disappoint. I've read this series more than once, and it remains on my shelf. Try the Night-Threads world today!
