Ascendant Sun is the direct sequel to the Nebula Award finalist The Last Hawk. Kelric returns to Skolian space, only to find the Empire in control of the Allied forces of Earth, thanks to the upheaval of the Radiance War. With little more than the clothes on his back and with his family imprisoned by the Allieds, Kelric is forced to take work on a merchant vessel. But when that vessel enters Euban space, Kelric finds his worst nightmare realized: he is auctioned as a slave "provider" to the cruel Aristos, who subject slaves to torture and sex to provide their ultimate telepathic emotional drug.
"Yet another fast-paced and pleasing entry in the Saga of the Skolian Empire." (Publishers Weekly)
"The best of her Skolian Empire series. Asaro continues to oblige seekers of fast-paced entertainment with literate page-turners." (Booklist)
