Iridia is surprised that she is chosen to be a Guardian, then Avatar of a planet. Her ability to become invisible to those around her is what made her the best candidate.  Zanthan was raised by the planet and is Iridia’s co-Avatar.

Lesser is the eighth book in the Terran Times Second Wave series.  I found the description of the planet, Tharos Prime, to be very interesting. The planet destroyed the entire population after the populace murdered his Avatar, and Tharos Prime is slowly trying to recover from the destruction he wrought by allowing inhabitants back to his surface.  The descriptions the author gave of the various peoples, including the Guardians, allowed to populate the planet was interesting. I loved the description of the “Blue Fairy” as the description was clearly in the realm of science fiction.

I had to laugh at Zanthan’s mother.  She was so concerned about someone taking advantage of him, she didn’t listen to her own star that she was the Avatar for.  Tharos Prime was a big surprise.  There were a few interesting and humorous moments as the Guardians introduced themselves to the various groups on the planet.

The chemistry between Iridia and Zanthan was hot.  They had some communication issues to get through, once Iridia realized Zanthan knew she was his co-Avatar.

Ms. Grace has created some wonderful and interesting worlds to put this series.  Fans will not be disappointed.  I am looking forward to the next book in this series.
