GATE OF IVORY
New York : DAW, 1989.
of Pyrene ends up on Ivory long after her pleasure cruise should be over.
She becomes part of the underworld reading palms, when a stranger hires
her for a private job. Theodora meets Ran Cormalon who is limited by a
curse his grandmother placed on him. He must have a female companion to
complete his magical power -- he has just chosen Theodora. When it becomes
clear that someone is out to ruin Ran, it also becomes clear that Theodora's
life is in danger as well. Theodora's resourcefulness is not limited by
awareness of cultural roles as Ran's is, so she helps them survive some
inhospitable visits to some pretty strange outposts on their way to Ran's
home base. A weird combination of computers an the occult make this book
fun to read.
