Naamah's Curse

by Jacqueline Carey
Release date: June 13, 2010
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: fantasyhigh fantasy, romance

A sweeping epic fantasy novel from a NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author.

Moirin is alone, and far from the land of her birth, with nothing but a few resources of her own to draw upon, and few friends she can call upon, in what is about to become a nation of enemies.

She has her natural ability with a bow, for survival, and a facility for languages – and then there are the gifts of her gods: a small ability for foretelling, for concealment, and to coax plants to grow. Alongside them all she has the gift of Naamah: the gift of desire. Yet these are small advantages against the challenges she will face – betrayal, treachery and indoctrination – and some of them may not prove to be advantages at all.

There is a long, difficult journey ahead of her, in her search for Bao, the young Ch'in warrior who carries a piece of her soul as well as her heart, and harder decisions to make. Whether she can forgive a deliberate betrayal; whether she will fight against all odds for her love; and whether, when all believe her dead and her life and her religion hang in the balance, Moirin can sacrifice her beliefs, or will hold true to her goddess even in death...
