Reothe, the last T'En warrior, thought to marry Imoshen, the last T'En empress, when the Ghebite General and his warriors invaded their island home of Fair Isle. To insure that her people would survive, Imoshen married the General and gave him an heir. In time she came to love Tulkhan and their marriage was more than a political merger.

Tulkhan and the Empress yearn only for peace so they can enjoy life but circumstances drive a wedge between them. Reothe still wants Imoshen and if truth were known, she loves him in a way she can never love the General. Yet when Tulkan's half-brother tries to take Fair Isle by force. Tulkhan, Imoshen and Reothe are forced into an alliance, using T'En magic and brute force, that might bring the powerful Ghebite empire to its knees.

This is the third and final novel in “The last T'En” trilogy and DESPERATE ALLIANCES is as good as it's two predecessors. Cory Daniels ties up all the loose ends and answers all the remaining questions so that readers of this sword-and-sorcery romantic fantasy will feel totally satiated upon completion of this novel. Ms. Daniels is a first-class storyteller whose words will appeal to lovers of epic and romantic fantasy.
