CAFE READS: FIRES OF NUALA, by CAT KIMBRIEL

Fires of Nuala

This space opera/mystery, the first in the Chronicles of Nuala series, is just as much fun to read as it was when it first came out.

Kimbriel has created a fascinatingly complex culture in the Nualans, who have adapted to a dangerously radioactive planet.

Darame is a con artist, but she only goes for the big con, and her marks are other con artists. When she meets the Nualans, she is fascinated by people who do not lie. But when there is a vicious attack that nearly wipes out the ruling family, she finds herself involved . . . and as someone is lying somewhere, she has to use her skills to figure out who.

This is the kind of space opera I love most, with larger than life characters, interesting cultures, culture clashes, romance, action, and just enough intriguing threads left dangling to promise further explorations.

I am so glad that Kimbriel is bringing these novels out again, and is writing the fourth.

  1. Two of my favorite authors at once. Now KEK can review Inda or The Exordium and all will be complete.
    PS more Nuala would be most welcome

    • Actually, I did a review of A Posse of Princesses, which will show up on the site eventually!

      I am about 12,000 words into what was going to be a short piece about a new character in the third Darame timeline. But now it’s looking like a novella or who knows, a novel? I’m working on four things at once, so know that I haven’t forgotten that world.
