Terry Jackman is an all-round busy person. Apart from running the British Science Fiction Associations 'Orbit Groups' (a wonderful organisation where new and experienced support each other), but she also edits and reviews. How she finds time to write, I have no idea, but I am privileged and honoured to have help crit and edit a number of Terry's books, including this one.
Here's a link to the publisher, Dragonwell Publishing
"A desert world. A warrior nation that worships its emperor as a god. But for Ashamet, its prince, a future filled with danger...
Ashamet is confident his swordsmanship, and his arranged marriage, will be enough to maintain the empire’s peace. But when a divine symbol magically appears on his arm, closely followed by an attempt on his life, he no longer knows who to trust. Worse, the strange attraction he feels toward a foreign slave could be another trap. As events unravel, too fast, Ashamet must find out if this innocent young male is a tool for his enemies--or the magic key to his survival.
"Ashamet, Desert-Born" is a debut adventure fantasy with an exotic Arabian-style setting and elements of same-sex romance."
