The Va’Shan Trilogy.
A Requiem For Caelus by R. Peter Ubtrent.
The Va’Shan Trilogy: Books 1-3.
When the young Lo’thar Mistshrouder of the Fikir Clan saved the even younger Lorelei Heartstealer of the Kar clan, all hailed it as the day when the two clans could end their ages-old war and usher in an era of peace and harmony. It was simple dumb-luck that Caelus was chosen at that time to be the next planet Suppressed by the mighty Va’Shan Empire. Lorelei was taken to serve in the pleasure Sanctum of Kral, leader of the Va’Shan. Lo’thar, together with Lorelei’s best friend Maegil and the Dragor Jo’tal, are all that is left behind and they quickly discover that their magical abilities are no match for the advanced weapons arrayed against them. Thus begins the three-book saga of Lo’thar, Lorelei, Maegil, and Jo’tal, caught up in the vile and corrupt world of a galactic empire they never even knew existed.

Caelus has been destroyed. All that is left of the once numerous inhabitants are Lo’thar, Maegil, Jo’tal, the younglings, and Lorelei. Lorelei is trapped in the Inner Sanctum of the Archus Superus, forced to use her telepathic skills to pretend to service him on a now nightly basis, not foreseeing that her supposed skill in love-making is attracting the attention of those who wish her harm for daring to become Kral’s favorite.

Driven by a desire to find Lorelei, Lo’thar and Meagil must part ways with Jo’tal, whose all embracing passion for revenge will drive him to killing without remorse. Set against an empire ready to crumble from within, Cl’ar’s Grace takes our heroes far passed their comfort-zones and into a world of piracy, thievery, betrayal and violence the likes of which they never knew existed. And then there is Cl’ar….
