They journey to his home with Izadra frightened as much by her feelings as she is by his power. Duty comes first to At'r so he hides his love for his new wife from himself for fear that will weaken his rule. On Creasion, a cult led by the evil Priestess Ba-lyn endangers Izadra and the child she carries unless she and At'r can learn to trust one another starting with telepathy.

THREE MOONS RISING is a tremendous romantic fantasy that will elate fans from both genres and cause a flurry of action to find more works by Sheila N. Eskew. The story line is loaded with action, but insures the key cast members seem three-dimensional so that alien races appear authentic. The romantic subplot is a delight leading to a fulfilling time for those who appreciate a well-written love story that transcends the stars.
