Lord of the Storm by Justine Davis
As I was walking by my bookshelves the other day Lord of the Storm by Justine Davis called out to me. I took it down to re-read and remembered how much I enjoyed this RITA award winning classic Science Fiction Romance.
Shaylah Graymist is a fighter pilot for the intergalactic Coalition. She does not approve of many of the Coalition policies but turns a blind eye because she loves flying for their space force. Shaylah is on leave when her friend Califa offers her the services of Wolf, a slave from Trois. Trois was a peaceful would that chose to remain neutral instead of joining the Coalition. The world was destroyed and most of its inhabitants killed because of that choice. This offer forces Shaylah face the issues she hates about the Coalition. She frees Wolf and joins him in a fight against slavery and the Coalition. The story, the characters and the plot are well thought out and developed. The love story between Shaylah and Wolf has passion and excitement. If you get the chance get a copy of Lord of the Storm.
Topaz published Lord of the Storm by Justine Davis in 1994. The book is currently out of print but can be found used on Amazon and other sites. There is a second book in the series, The Skypirate.
Justine Davis still writes contemporary romance. I hope someday she goes back the the worlds she created for Lord of the Storm.
