I wanted to do more reviews of Pam Uphoff’s books because I really enjoy “The Wine of the Gods” series and her “Directorate Series.” I haven’t even tried to count them all.
I had been following Ra’d from the time he was introduced as a character in the first book. He had interesting beginnings. He and others were “bubbled” in a dimensional bubble during a war. They were un-bubbled several centuries later. It was a shock for them and the society when they tried to integrate.
If you want to read about it, you’ll have to go to the earlier books in the series.
Why I like this book in particular is that Ra’d is now in the intelligence services and he has to juggle his spy duties with his lover. She happens to be from another world and there is an uneasy truce between worlds. Even worse, she is the offspring of the God of Spies.
So Ra’d is between two loyalties.
Every book I’ve read from Pam Uphoff has had a different twist in it. Her characters are well-formed and interesting.
I will read this one again.
