Two-time Aurora Award winner Guy Gavriel Kay has earned a tremendous worldwide following for his works of fantasy. In a setting inspired by the real-world Song Dynasty of China, River of Stars takes place four centuries after the events of Under Heaven. As war approaches from the north, Ren Daiyan leaves the safety of the forest and makes his way toward the palace. Meanwhile, the highly educated and musically talented Lin Shan captivates the emperor even as she alienates the women at court. And the emperor himself must be cautious in the days ahead, for his actions could forever alter the balance of power in the world.

"In this return to the world created in UNDER HEAVEN, romance, political intrigue, military conflict, and barbarians at the border are at work in twelfth-century China. Narrator Simon Vance weaves the story of a young man who becomes a strong military leader and a young woman who challenges the norms of society by being educated and self-assured. VanceÕs skill with long passages of description and explication is put to good use here. His tone is nostalgic and introspective as the characters spend much of their time musing about the empire portrayed in UNDER HEAVEN, as well as events 400 years earlier.
