It has been several years since a war restructured the Society of Kalaydan. The ruling line for the planet are human women with an affinity for wielding a power referred to as Chi. Though there are several flavors of Chi in the world all are intricately connected to sex, virility and procreation. There are apparently a couple of non-usual humanoid races on this world. The environment boasts of few technologies beyond running water as it seems people get around be foot or horseback and still carry blades as their primary weapons.
There does seem to be some technology not commonly used, or is it magic? The Chamber of Power seems to allow the ruling line of matriarchs to enforce their will or energize their forces, it will likely be cleared up in future works. There is a lot of sex that occurs in this story and revolves around a household that openly discusses such things with a pampered precocious princess present. Your homework assignment beyond reading this book is to recite the last four words of the previous sentence three times while turning in a circle with your eyes closed. Why? Because it would be funny. I was very impressed with the author’s ability to describe erotic acts and raise senses in an elegant manner.
As of reading this volume I would classify this as Fantasy though the future promises to evolve into Science Fiction. Either path, well done.
