This book by Linda Harley was an interesting mix of Science Fiction and Fantasy. It is the first in the Saldiora series. It has an amazingly strong female heroine.  A fabulous story and an exciting mix of ancient sword style fighting and modern technology.

It has some very intense moral values of being true to who you are as Lynn is kidnapped and taken to an entirely new world where she just really doesn't fit in.  Lynn winds up in Saldiora which is a very strange world where modern technology is available yet they still have slavery, where strictly black and white, and still fight with swords.

Yes this is a strange world indeed, one in which animals TALK! So what a mix we have in this book.  I for one can't wait to read the next book in this series.  

All in all, I give this book 4 stars.  It had a few slow points for me so I couldn't give it the full 5 stars, but I definitely recommend this book and will assuredly be picking up the next book in the series.  I am looking forward to reading more about Kyle and Lynn and the adventures with the enemies of Saldiora.
