Teaser Tuesday – THE BEST OF ALL POSSIBLE WORLDS by Karen Lord

The Best of All Possible Worlds Synopsis

The Best of All Possible Worlds by Karen LordThe Best of All Possible Worlds is a stunning science fiction epic that is also a beautifully wrought, deeply moving love story.

A proud and reserved alien society finds its homeland destroyed in an unprovoked act of aggression, and the survivors have no choice but to reach out to the indigenous humanoids of their adopted world, to whom they are distantly related. They wish to preserve their cherished way of life but come to discover that in order to preserve their culture, they may have to change it forever.

Now a man and a woman from these two clashing societies must work together to save this vanishing race—and end up uncovering ancient mysteries with far-reaching ramifications. As their mission hangs in the balance, this unlikely team—one cool and cerebral, the other fiery and impulsive—just may find in each other their own destinies . . . and a force that transcends all. (B&N)

My teaser:

I barely even noticed when my friend Gilda said to me, “But where are the women?”. I should have paid attention. (Page 11, ebook)

I have only just started The Best of All Possible Worlds, but am finding the sci-fi world being laid out interesting.

I am lucky enough to be reading a review copy. This title will be published in early February 2013.
