Raised as a human on Pallas, Sharon can forge mental contact and doesn't know how to turn it off, even when Amanda begs her t. have become a total fan of this author's work. The Dawning starts off looking like it's an alien meets human romance in a sci-fi package, but the depths plumbed in this novel go far beyond that.

Adams writes in a flowing story- like style which draws in the reader, almost making one forgetful of reading a history. At times, the prose undulates endlessly, but mostly it is a helpful narrative for a student and an easy read.

What if you had the power to change the past -- but doing so would destroy your future? Thirteen years have passed since the fiery explosion that killed seven people and shattered the lives of thousands more, but Amanda Martin is unable to forgive herself for her part in the tragedy. Deep in the hills of Arizona, she lets time pass her by, but the torrential rains fail to wash away her pain. During a storm unlike any other, she goes to the aid of a woman caught in the resulting flood. After a daring rescue that nearly claims both their lives, Amanda has no choice but to offer the stranger the safety of her hogan for one night. The next day, she vows, the hapless woman will be out of her life and she will go back to her isolated, private world of regrets. When the mud is washed away, a shattered Amanda recognizes her guest--one of the seven the whole world had watched die. The mysterious, compelling Sharon may hold the secrets Amanda needs to fix all the mistakes of her past, but Sharon is no ordinary woman, and their growing feelings for each other no ordinary love. Originally written under the pen name Laura Adams, Karin Kallmaker's uplifting tale of sacrifice, redemption and all-too human emotions continues the story of hope and love begun in the critically acclaimed Night Vision.

The first star is because it is required for a review, the second is because it's lesbian fiction, and there isn't a lot of it out there. Good for this author for contributing to the tiny existing pool of it. Shoddy book though. We have to have higher standards for content with lesbian themes. What is out there is just so underwhelming.

I will say that it earns points for... /unique/ subject matter... I wonder what the family of Christa McAuliffe would think about this piece?

I have read all of the books written by this author and her last two efforts have left me unmoved and dissapointed.I stumbled across her book "In Every Port" by accident three years ago, but after reading it I was so impressed with her ability to weave a beautiful love story that I purchased every book she had ever written up to that date and loved each and everyone of them. I could close my eyes and put a face to the characters of her books because they were so real.I have become so familiar with Kallmakers skill as a story teller that I was able to guess, even before it was public knowledge, that she was Laura Adams. Because only Kallmaker could write stories like Christabel and Night Visions. Stories that entertwine Romance and Sci-Fi so well that one cant help but grieve and rejoice for the characters.After reading The Dawning I realized i didnt feel a connecton with any of the characters. Unike the character Sirena, from the book Night Visions, Sharon is selfish and uses her special gifts as a means to justify her own end. Her life is not in jeopardy and she has no real reason for making contact with Amanda but the first few pages of the book describes how Sharon uses her psychic gifts on a very unwilling Amanda. Even after Amanda repeatedly pleads with Sharon to stop she doesnt. The character Amanda has been living the last 13yrs of her life almost as a hermit grieving over an accident, that she eventually learns, she played no part in. Then she spends another 13yrs waiting for the return of her true love.We are also reintroduced to the characters JT and Tamar. But Tamar has lost the tranquility that was given to her by Sirena. Tamars' character is cold and terse with no sense of happiness. And the Character JT is using her special gifts to heal the wealthy in order to fund the home run by Tamar and herself.I was also dissapointed when the character Sharon told Amanda how she had been isolated from the women of Pallas because she was different from them. She went on to explain that once those differences were corrected she would be permitted to fully enter their world. Why be a part of a world that cant accept you fully for who and what you are? I was totally shocked to find this theme in Kallmakers writting especially after reading Car Pool, Paperback Romance and Night Vision.I guess what I am waiting for is Naiad to announce the name of the person writting under the psuedonym of Karin Kallmaker.

"There is no United Federation of Planets. There are no Vulcans." This is one of my favorite lines from this book. The aliens are coming, and some of them are Not Nice. Sharon, a visitor from a female-only species planet called Pallas, tries to tell Amanda this bitter truth. Sharon herself makes lots of mistakes, not the least of which is how she treats Amanda from their first meeting. Raised as a human on Pallas, Sharon can forge mental contact and doesn't know how to turn it off, even when Amanda begs her to.
I have become a total fan of this author's work. The Dawning starts off looking like it's an alien meets human romance in a sci-fi package, but the depths plumbed in this novel go far beyond that. COnvincingly real is Amanda's grief and near-suicidal state after the Challenger explosion, and then her sheer terror when she learns exactly what Sharon is. Just when Amanda has successfully forgotten that Sharon is not quite human, she is reminded -- usually painfully -- of the truth.
I got goosebumps when Amanda gets her chance to rewrite history, and I so wanted her to succeed! The novel ends with all possibilities left open and I hope that there are more in the series. I am reminded of Marion Zimmer Bradley's Darkover books, which don't have a set chronology or order. I would love if it this series (which began with Night Vision, another bravura novel from Karin Kallmaker's Laura Adams persona) ends up with as many books to savor, to puzzle over and to get fabulous goosebumps from.
The aliens are coming, and some of them are Not Nice.

The Dawning is another winner for Adams, aka Kallmaker. WhileI have enjoyed almost every book she has written and would rate mostof them as peak experiences, I was especially impressed with theamount of accurate information contained (incidentally to the story) about the Navajo nation. Being a descendent of First Generation Americans, I am impressed by this attention to detail. Plus, the story was wonderful, with very real and very believable characters exploring for us the range of human emotions not usually covered in a 'romance' novel. I can hardly wait for the next novel which will carry on the general story line of the Daughters of Pallas. END

Sure wish this author would come up with a third novel to this line. Hint Hint Moogie!
