Chris Reherabout this book: A man with a powerful ability to stay in mental communication with his ruler is sent, along with his twin, to a nearby moon to recover another adept and return her to the planet. Although their superior talents are the result of a substance found throughout this solar system, they find that on the moon the feats they are able to accomplish are regarded as the work of demons, forbidden by their Gods and punishable by death.
What is now a rescue mission starts to turn into something far more complex and dangerous when the twins discover that nothing is quite as they had been told and their own history in the struggle between these planets precedes even their own birth.
Largely, the story is about abuse. Not just the physical and mental abuse suffered by the twins, but also abuse of power, authority, faith, friendship, trust and of nature. Which of those need to be forgiven and which must be avenged?
The story appeals to female readers, because of the relationship that develops between the main characters, although told largely from the male protagonist's point of view. This presented a few interesting challenges that I hope got sorted out along the way.
