Award-winning science fiction romance author Christie Meierz presents the newest of her bestselling Tales of Tolari Space.

Laura Howard, Earth Fleet widow and exile from human space, found more than safety on Tolar: she captured the love of a Tolari ruler and became a powerful Tolari empath. But in the midst of ancient, bitter rivalries, a serious injury erases Laura's time in Parania--and, perhaps, loses her the love of her Paran, who yearns for the woman she once was. Armed only with the memories of her youth, and empathically bonded to a man she can no longer understand, she struggles to recover and find her place, and herself, before a hidden enemy forces the Paran to do what he had always considered unthinkable: risk his life, and with it Laura's, to fight for the leadership of the ruling caste.

The Fall is the story of a world re-opened to the stars after millennia of isolation, and the hazards and opportunities that abound when one's feelings are known to everyone around you.

Reviews:Danielle Hill on InD'tale Magazine wrote:

SCI-FI: Human Laura Howard is adjusting to her life on Tolar, the recent loss of her husband, and the gaining of a lover in Tolari ruler, the Paran. The blessing of the matriarch of all the rulers of Tolar has given her renewed youth and empathic ability she has to learn to master. Laura never expected to fall in love so soon after her husband’s death, but the Paran has found his way into her heart. Just as they bond together, a dangerous rival ruler and other circumstances will jeopardize her second chance at happiness with the Paran.

Book 3 in a series about the Tolari planet and human women who find themselves deeply enmeshed in their culture, “The Fall” is science fiction romance with a hefty dose of space opera. The author has developed a culturally rich world in which the majority of the people are highly empathic, and they bond and interact with people on a much deeper level. Laura is a sympathetic heroine who struggles with insecurities, but loves generously and courageously, adapting to an entirely different life. The Paran is an appealing love interest, both elegant and cerebral, but also very expressive in his love for Laura. Even the antagonists are well drawn with valid motivations. “The Fall” isn’t a casual read. It’s full of intensive concepts and multiple narratives, and readers aren’t given much back story on previous volumes. Readers who enjoy science fiction romance with complex world-building will appreciate “The Fall.”
