Children at war, January 11, 2000
Reviewer: Matthew Weisenburger (Seattle)

A boy 7 years old left to rule a princedom. And the mother who mourns not only the death of a husband, a brother, and all her brothers family. Sits in a chair and weeps at the loss of childhood. At the end of this book so many children are fighting. from 7 - 11 years old. That I was left thinking to my self how odd. Then it occurred to me. Almost all the men are dead.
This is one of the most gripping novels I have ever read. Book 2 The Dragon Token, puts the reader right in the middle of the war with the Vellant'im and their High Warlord. And the Azhrei and the people of the Kingdoms.

War is hell as someone once said. And Melanie Rawn makes sure you understand exactly what that means. By allowing you to invest yourself into a character only to have that character die to the ravages of war.

This is unlike any book I have ever read. I found my self throwing the book across the room on more then one occasion. No book has ever griped me so tightly or effected me so deeply.
