How will Thea find the strength to handle are the dilemmas and keep her newfound family together?
The Ta'e'sha Chronicles thoroughly captivated me in the first novel and the second one, Shards of the Mind, ensnared me with the emotional trials and ongoing intrigue as Thea evolved into her new life as a wife to Kyrin and Daeshen. Theolyn Boese has created a fascinating world with extraordinary characters that will touch your heart. The unfolding plot pulls you into the lives of the characters and the intrigue will keep you until the last page. I would recommend reading the first novel, The Ta'e'sha Chronicles: Daughters of Terra to get the full emotional impact of Thea's story from the beginning. Shards of the Mind is a great book that I enjoyed very much and I'll be looking for more great stories from Theolyn Boese in the future.

Several months have passed since Thea was attacked, but the nightmares have yet to fade. Her dreams are filled with blood, knives and a fear that even the comforting weight of her husbands beside her cannot banish.
As they draw closer to Ta'e and the trial, mysterious pranks begin to plague the ship's crew. Thea has her suspicions but is distracted by her own life. She has prepared a marriage veil and her husbands encourage her to offer it to Sya'tia, a Warrior Chosen woman they have come to care for. Will Sya'tia accept it and join her life to theirs?
But, Ta'e is not the paradise she believed it would be. While the Ta'e'shians do not harbor the same hatred her attacker did, there is a subtle disdain in the air that disturbs her. And, occasionally not so subtle, she discovers, when she meets her new in-laws.
Meanwhile, Kyrin and Daeshen are making their own sexy plans to regain Thea's trust in them. They have no intention of letting her pull away from them. Even if they have to tie her up to do it.
