Blue Moon Rising 2
Rebellion, mind tricks, and tangled love on a planet far, far away.
Princess M'lani of the planet Psyclid, where almost everyone but M'lani is gifted with some kind of psychic ability, has agreed to marry Jagan Mondragon, the Sorcerer Prime. Jagan fled Psyclid when it was invaded by the Regulon Empire, but has now returned, supposedly to lead his people in rebellion against the occupation. But he's been dragging his feet about it, and when he finally shows up, he has his mistress with him. If that weren't enough of a problem, M'lani develops a not-so-welcome psychic gift, and then there's that prickly long-time rebel leader, T'kal Killiri (who did not flee Psyclid at the first sign of the Regs), and the antics of M'lani's younger brother, K'kadi, who speaks only through illusions.
On Blue Moon, one of Psyclid's three moons, M'lani's older sister Kass and her husband Tal continue to plot a massive rebellion against the Regs, but freedom for the obscure, peace-loving planet of Psyclid seems a long way away.
Author's Note: For Kass's and Tal's story, please see Book 1 of the Blue Moon rising series, REBEL PRINCESS.
