Terrilian is finally returned to her home, as is initially promised by Tammad, where she learns that her period of humiliating confinement was arranged by her diplomat father. In The Warrior Enchained , the second novel in the series, Terrilian is recalled by Tammad, who promptly resumes his brutality, plunging Terrilian to new depths of despair. Another Green series from the s revolves around the adventures of Jalav, a headstrong, sword-wielding Amazon warrior who similarly confronts barbarous, abusive men.
Unlike Terrilian, however, Jalav is a defiant, highly capable combatant. While attempting to retrieve stolen crystals in The Crystals of Mida , she and her Amazonian sisters are besieged and defiled by men whom they themselves once detained and similarly mistreated. James Guide to Fantasy Writers. Both the "Terrilian" and "Jalav" novels were inspired by the work of John Norman, and Green is sometimes compared to Norman.
In point of fact, however, Green consciously set out to improve upon Norman's formula for helpless female characters. In an interview published on her Web site, Green noted that she "exploded and hit the ceiling" when she began one of Norman's "Gor" books. I didn't quite get that far, but I got far enough to add to my own writing what it was lacking: So I can't really complain about that Gor book.
I read one of his, and got ten of my own from it.
Green has continued writing books in the fantasy vein. Dawn Song , for example, revolves around the undertakings of a resolute princess with magical powers and little regard for her uncharacteristically deferential male counterparts. In addition to its more imaginative wonderland setting, Garrett noted, "there is one torture scene, glossed over and not sexually charged, and the story ends without anyone being forced to do anything sexual against their will.
Green abandoned altogether the violent medieval trappings of her early fiction as the author of several Harlequin romance novels. Her preference when working for Harlequin is to create mystery romances for the "Intrigue" line, a task far more challenging than it might seem. In her online interview she said, "A lot of writers claim thay won't write formula, but don't kid yourself. It takes a lot of self discipline, and some people just don't have that. My own private boast is that if you can't be creative in formula, you can't be creative anywhere else either.
Green once explained to CA: Hopefully it is something to relieve the tedium of people's lives rather than to make deep, philosophical statements. One stand I do contend against rather strongly is the taboo on sex. Violence and gruesome dismemberment are considered to be totally acceptable, but descriptions of the reproductive process are not. I refuse to accept that and will continue to refuse until people grow up. Then I will probably find another point of contention. People tend to laugh at the idea of honor these days, but their laughter has never disturbed me and never will.

This great series about Special Agent Diana Santee, who travels between the planets of the Confederation and sometimes beyond on the Council's business. In this book she is going after the people who were behind the slave planet, Grailing. With her still is Valdon in disguise trying to plan a way to get her to forgive him, prove to her that he has changed, and resume their relationship.
Great action, struggling flawed characters, shakey male female relationships, and a awesome kick-butt heroine make for a addictive space opera series. Alas this cliff hanger has been the last book for some years. Please Sharon Green, become inspired again, everything has been left hanging and your readers are suffering. By the time you get to Book Durell in the life of Diana Santee, Special Agent, you've accommodated to the stilted dialog and repetition of ideas in Sharon Green's writing, and you're just going with the flow.
And that flow, you've learned over the past 13 novels, includes a cliff-hanger at the end of each book, promising more adventures and heart-ache for Our Heroine in the next installment. The 13th in the line is no exception. There's Diana, obviously headed to Foria where the last dastardly villian is holed up. Maybe Book 14 is even the the end of the line, where Diana saves the universe and finally gets to enjoy Her Man in peace.
I could accept that as an ending. So where's Book Not in the Amazon Kindle list; it's not even listed as a paper book. Green's Web site and Wikipedia both end the list at Durrell, either Book 13 or Sequel 11, depending on how you're numbering them.
These 13 books are very tasty, and just as you realize you have to have one more, you're left hanging! If you prefer technology to swords and sorcery, you want Diana Santee. Just watch out for that last step, it isn't there. Another fantastic book in the series, but it's definitely NOT over!! Where is the next. Grrr, it's hard to keep reading her books if there won't be some sort of completion.
I've enjoyed her work for 30 years, and the fact that she has written more it's wonderful, but please Sharon, we beg you to finish this. She is working on completing another series.
I love her books and cant recommend them enough. I love this serie and hope there Will be a lot more of Val and Diana to see It's a hard serie to read because of the hard scenes like Rape but overall i have lauge, wept smilet White Diana and Val.

Some of the women are very capable and able to take care of themselves, but some are that sort often considered helpless. Another Green series from the s revolves around the adventures of Jalav, a headstrong, sword-wielding Amazon warrior who similarly confronts barbarous, abusive men.
