The Triumphant Return of Morgaine, the white queen!
Here after ten years, is the long-awaited new novel about one of C. J. Cherryh's most famous and popular heroines, Morgaine, closer of the world Gates! Morgaine, who with her magical sword Changeling and her loyal liegeman Vanye, travels from world to world, seeking out the Gates, deadly heritage of a long-vanished race, which could forever warm past, present, and future unless they are shut down.
Now, on a world torn by rebellion and war, Morgaine must meet her greatest challenge. For here she will face Gault, who is both human and alien and who seeks control of the world and it's Gate. And here too Morgaine will face the true Gatemaster, a mysterious lord with a power as great – or perhaps greater than Morgaine's own!
C. J. Cherryh (born 1942) is the pen name of Carolyn Janice Cherry, a multiple-award-winning science fiction and fantasy writer. She currently resides in Spokane County, Washington.
Cherryh is pronounced ”Cherry”. The author appended a silent ”h” to her real name because her first editor felt that ”Cherry” sounded too much like a romance writer.
The asteroid 77185 Cherryh has been named in her honour.
