Publisher's Summary

Lynn is an imprinter, one chosen by the Goddess to receive her greatest gift, that of creating new life. So why does she feel like a prisoner in the Temple?
When Lynn learns she is to be relocated to the temple at Landfall, the arduous journey seems more like a gift - her last chance to see something of the outside world. She does not anticipate the dangers and temptations she will encounter along the way, nor does she expect Lieutenant Kim Ramon, an officer in the squadron of Rangers assigned to protect her. Despite all prohibitions forbidding it, attraction grows between the two women.
Against them stand the powerful religious Sisterhood and their holy warriors - the Temple Guards. In a world ruled by the Church, what chance is there that Lynn can escape?

One of my favorite series...

I can't believe they put one of my favorite books on audio. I love this series and hope all the books are put on audio. I've read each book numerous times, except The Shadow of the Knife which I just can't get into. I like the characters, the plot of each story and the overall story of the series.

While I love this book it's not my favorite in the series. The series revolves around a planet that was colonized by people that fled the earth. Years have past, history lost and new beliefs have arisen. Its an all female and very religious society (how this happened is explained in the appendix). While there is romance in the story, I wouldn't say that's the main focus. The story focuses on the life of each of the two women. It furthers deals a lot with the planet's society, their beliefs and a rebel faction that has developed.

The narrator can make or break a book, I discovered this with the poor narration of Protector of the Realm by Gunn Brooke. The narrator had a pleasant voice, clear and easy to understand.

The recording does overlap in areas, which needs to be fixed, but didn't occur so much it took away from the story.

Interesting world building

The story had me interested to the last chapter will be looking at the rest in the series, however I did have a few instances where the audio was clipping over other lines.
