NAAMAH'S CURSE

Far from the land of her birth, Moirin sets out across Tatar territory to find Bao, the proud and virile Ch'in fighter who holds the missing half of her diadh-anam, the divine soul-spark of her mother's people.

But the lovers' happiness is short lived, for Bao is entangled in a complication that soon leads to their betrayal.

        April 12, 2010
        In this sequel to 2009’s Naamah’s Kiss
        , Moirin, the devoted servant of a sex goddess, journeys across half of a fantasy version of Asia in search of her soulmate, Bao. In Tatar territory, she finds Bao... and his wife. His father-in-law, the Great Khan, is willing to go to great extremes to keep Bao and Moirin apart. Captured by the fanatic Patriarch of Riva, Moirin escapes to find that Bao has vanished again, this time headed toward the distant lair of the Spider Queen and her army of assassins. The romantic tale is marred by Moirin’s narcissistic awareness that she is destined for a glorious fate that lesser mortals like Bao’s jealous wife may only envy. Carey’s storytelling ability is top-notch, however, and readers will applaud her willingness to resolve major plot threads in the middle book of a trilogy.

        This second book in a projected trilogy (after Naamah's Kiss) and eighth installment in the larger world of "Kushiel's Legacy" follows Moirin as she navigates challenging terrains to reconnect with her Chi'n soul mate, Bao. Leaving the Orient, Moirin makes for Tartar territory, where she is captured and sold to a religious leader who wants to convert her to the path of Yeshua to aid him in an escalating holy war. Religion is much more of a theme here than in the previous book. The first part addresses the holy wars started on behalf of the son of God, and the second takes Moirin south, where she encounters fictionalized Buddhism and Hinduism. Far less focused on sex than many of Carey's other series titles, this novel is more of a traditional quest fantasy, albeit with a sexually generous female protagonist. VERDICT Recommended for series fans. Readers who enjoy fantasies that involve alternative mythological or religious history such as those by Marion Zimmer Bradley may also want to follow Moirin's journey.
