Initiate at the formidable Citadel utterly shattered.
The excesses of Father Tarrip, High Priest of the Holy Prophet , would be beyond the endurance of the terrified girls in his charge
were it not for the efforts of Sister Maria, who as an Adept of the secretive and forbidden Society of T’arn, is able to control
him – but only to a degree.
But Maria has concerns beyond the fate of the pampered young ladies of Qalle aristocracy; the delicately balanced peace between the
warring nations is under threat, and the very future of the planet may be in her hands.
The struggle for control of Qalle is a secret one, known to only a few. Caught between the opposing factions are the innocent
Initiates: Hysena, the beautiful, intelligent yet naive Lady; Jagdig, the formidable warrior girl of Kallinia; plump Princess Leel
of Calith; tiny, demure Silka of Sis Narash and the others.
And, somewhere within the sprawling walls and forbidding towers of the ancient Citadel, are the Acolytes, male counterparts to the
Initiates, who in the timeless manner of young men everywhere will undertake any risk if it may result in the chance to meet young
women, even if that risk may result in disaster...
The world of Qalle is a world of cruelty, of pain, of punishment. A world of plot, counter-plot and intrigue, but which still
allows time enough for love, tenderness and yearning desire.
First published some years ago, The Initiate by Miranda Lake is now available in downloadable form for the first time – one of the
most erotic novels to be published this century.
