The Star Shadow Trilogy-Book One, Prequel to The Time Master Trilogy. "How strong are you? That's all that matters, you see. Your strength. Your ability to look on the face of Chaos and stay sane. That's how we're all judged, here." Twelve years as a Chaos Rider had taught Benetan Liss the truth of those ominous words. Yet despite the terrors and demands of his work, he was loyal to his masters and devoted to Chaos's seven formidable gods... until a new First Magus came to power. For Lord Vordegh was far worse than a mere tyrant, and the obsession that drove him was one in which sanity had no place. On the first bitter night of the new reign, the mask of compliance that Benetan had worn for so long began to crack. And behind the mask lay a road to nightmare.

Louise Cooper, nee en 1952, a comble les lecteurs de Fantasy de tous ages depuis 1973 avec plus de vingt romans, des nouvelles et de la poesie. Passionnee de folklore et de mythologie, elle a vecu en Cornouailles avec son mari et ses chats avant de rejoindre les fees une nuit de 2009.From Publishers Weekly:
Like L.E. Modesitt in the Recluce series, Cooper in her Time Master trilogy (The Master) has contrasted the forces of Order and Chaos. But Cooper's characters, unlike Modesitt's, are never blatantly good or evil; this author suggests that Chaos and Order "are two faces of the same coin." This prequel to the Time Master series begins with the ascent of Vordegh to the position of First Magus. Although Vordegh is unremittingly evil, the antipathy of the Lords of Chaos to him mitigates his influence. Much of the remaining narrative follows Iselia Darrow, a disciple of the Lords of Order, who is captured by Chaos Riders on the night of her marriage to Kaldar Alvaray. Iselia is saved from being sacrificed by Savrinor, the court historian. As she realizes her growing influence over both Savrinor and Benetan Liss (who was betrothed to her years before), though, Iselia's Machiavellian manipulations rival those of any character working for Chaos. Meanwhile, Kaldar travels south in hopes of unleashing the Lords of Order and, not incidentally, being able to rescue Iselia. While readers familiar with the trilogy will know the ultimate outcome of all this drama, it's to Cooper's immense credit that the writing skills she evinces here should keep them, as well as most fantasy readers, enthralled.
