In Nebula Award-winner Catherine Asaro's romantic fantasy The Charmed Sphere, set in the land of Arondale, four fallible mages-outgoing young Chime, adviser to the dying King Daron; introspective Iris; Chime's fiance Lord Muller, heir to the Arondale throne; and sense-deprived Jarid-must learn to navigate the geometric web of power that rules this inviting realm.
