Signet D’Marigold’s lonely life is shaken when a prophet reveals she is a catalyst for change. But to accept her new life—and the charge of the noble child Avellana—means embracing a danger that may be fatal for them both. Especially when Signet’s attraction to her new bodyguard signals a secret enemy sworn to destroy them. (from Goodreads)
This is one of my favorite series. It is one of the few scifi/romance ones that I read which is odd because I love science fiction and romance. Anyway, Heart Change is actually a re-read for me. The sequel Heart Journey is out and I needed to refresh myself on what was happening on the planet Celta.
This is not a light-hearted series. Bad things do happen to good people, but things do work out in the end. All issues may not be resolved in one book, but that is what a series is for. At least there are no cliff-hangers. Each book does have a resolution to the main plotline.
Both of the main characters in this book are likable which is always important to me as the reader. There are a number of things working against them, but it all works out.
The secondary characters, who are old friends from previous books, have their lives expanded on and there is foreshadowing for future books.
Of course, the fams are an important part of the story. I love them just as much as I do the dust bunnies in Jayne Castle’s Harmony series.
My only problem with this series is she takes way too long between books.
