Fantasy Romance
Rating: 5 cups

Dara Khan Androcles is a healer who was adopted by peasants. Unlike
many women, she is a warrior.

Loren ta Cedric is an elven prince come to aid Dara’s king against
the coming enemy. The first time he sees Dara, he knows that she is
more than she seems.

When Dara finds a wounded Loren, she has no idea he is not just
another soldier. After she heals him, his glamour falls away and she
truly sees him. She takes him home with her, and Loren binds his life
to hers shortly thereafter. However, Dara has no real understanding
of what he has done, though she does wonder if the attraction to
Loren that she is feeling is part of it. Other survivors trickle in,
and Dara is called upon to use her healing powers, but when one of
her patients dies and Loren has to leave her, she is forced to flee.
Unfortunately, she is captured by the enemy. It is then she learns
that a demon is on the loose in her land. Only time will tell if she
is strong enough for what is to come, and/or if she will see Loren

Duality is a stunning read with glorious mental vistas. While the
book is a fantasy, it has a definite message we all can easily relate
to—that love can be found during great adversity. I enjoyed reading
about how Dara gains her strength to be who she truly is from her
love for Loren and her ancestors. Loren as the valiant warrior who
loves his lady in spite of her differences brought tears to my eyes
on more than one occasion. This book has the best of everything in
the romance genre, and I highly recommend it. It is a keeper!
