Books Info:

Ascendant Sun free pdf Ascendant Sun is the direct sequel to the Nebula Award finalist The Last Hawk, in which Kelric, heir to the Skolian Empire, crash-landed his fighter on the Restricted planet of Coba. He was imprisoned by the powerful mistresses of the great estates women who, over time, fell in love with him. After eighteen years of living in their gilded cage, Kelric finally made his escape.

Now, in Ascendant Sun, Kelric returns to Skolian space, only to find the Empire under the control of the Allied forces of Earth thanks to the upheaval of the Radiance War. With little more than the clothes on his back and his family imprisoned, Kelric finds his worst nightmare realized: he is auctioned as a slave "provider" to the cruel Aristos who subjects slaves to torture and sex to provide their ultimate telepathic emotional drug.

Ascendant Sun is an ambitious novel that showcases Catherine Asaro's unique ability to weave a web of romance, adventure, and hard science fiction.

"Asaro reveals fascinating new aspects of her talents with each new book, and readers can always expect something fresh, different, and absolutely wonderful."
