In this thoroughly welcome sequel to Dragon's Winter (1998), Karadur Atani, who can change form from human to dragon and back again, is accepted as a local lordling. In that capacity, he ruthlessly puts down the Unamira clan, a formidable group of bandits. Only two Unamira, grandchildren Maia and Taran di Sorvino, survive. The former, a potent herbalist, eventually becomes Karadur's lover and the mother of his daughter. Taran, on the other hand, follows his family's outlaw tradition and wreaks fearful vengeance on his enemies until he is imprisoned and has his right arm cut off. Furthermore, in Karadur Taran finds a judge who combines sternness and mercy, leaving the possibilities for a third tale virtually limitless. This one, despite a large cast and occasionally complicated plotting, features full and pleasing measures of Lynn's graceful prose and world-building talent.
A good followup to Dragon's Winter. Karadur finds female love and others find destiny.
Great story and follow-up to Dragon Winter
I'm not looking for the first of this series (Dragon's Winter). Just love the combination of Sci-Fi and Romance
