Kate Elliott is a writing tour-de-force. I read the Crown of Stars series as it was released in 1997 through to 2006 and found it marvellous. The writing style and story carried me away from the first moment. It was very difficult to wait for new books but waiting we all had to do. It was very much worth it in the end though.
Kate has also written a science fiction series called Jaran as well as two more trilogies.
This may be a little known fact (or not) which I will share with you. Kate Elliott is the pen name for Alis Rasmussen, who wrote a science fiction trilogy called the Highroad, which were released just before the Jaran series started.
Without further ado, here is Kate Elliott.
