The Empire of the Stars by Alison Baird

Description: In the tradition of Marion Zimmer Bradley, The Stone of the Stars was the acclaimed first volume in an ambitious trilogy that established Alison Baird as one of the brightest new talents on the fantasy scene. Now Baird continues her wondrous adventure...


Proclaimed the long-prophesied ruler of the Celestial Empire, Princess Ailia escapes her enemies on the planet Mera and joins her father, the king, on the world of Arainia. There, with her trusted companions Damion, Jomar, and Lorelyn, she struggles to control her growing powers while gathering political allies.

Yet time is running out for Ailia. On Mera, the mad tyrant Khalazar enters into an unholy alliance with the Dragon Prince Mandrake, a shapechanger with the blood-and magic-of dragons in his veins. Together they assemble a fearsome army for an attack on Arainia. Desperate to strike first, Jomar and Damion return to Mera in command of a brave, yet untested, army of their own. But as they prepare for what might be their last battle, Ailia embarks alone on a perilous mission-one that will place her in Mandrake's power...
