Reviewer: Saba (Saba@Shatara.com) "saba367"
When I first read the two book series by Melanie Rawn, the Dragon prince and Dragon Token series, about three years ago, I immediately rushed to write a review in order to perhaps encourage others to read this book. And as I mature in age I find myself looking back on what I wrote, and I couldn't have been more right. Although overly excited as I wrote the review, I know that it conveyed my true feeling. This book is still one of the best book series in the fantasy genre. Its intrepid plot and twists will leave you yearning for more. Not only will you see an example of great Character development, Plot construction and Realism in a created world, but you will see the essence of true living people with in the characters. And in life you will seek out the Sioned's and Rohan's and Pol's in life, but you may begin to see yourself as them and grow with them as the book progresses. Feel anger when they feel anger, feel sorrow when they feel sorrow, feel joy as they feel joy, and most of all see the colors as they sunrun. The scintillating book embodies tradition, politics, arts, magic, romance, action, and desire in blatant aspects as well as symbolism.
If there is one book series I would recommend you read in your lifetime this is it. It will change your perspective of life. but to the week of heart and mind beware, for this book will capture you up and stimulate your mind and emotions to an extent that is indescribable, to not understand it is a punishment alone to the weak of mind and to the weak of heart the books will take control of your feelings, so as I leave this I say read on, do not leave the books at deaths or destruction because there is always a silver lining to every dark cloud. And once and again in Eternity AZHREI FOREVER
With his wife and daughter held captive by the invading army of Vellant'im, High Prince Pol is forced to put aside his old antipathies and accept the help of his cousin Andry, the Lord of Goddess Keep. This conclusion to the second trilogy set in Rawn's world of Sunrunner magic continues the skillful plotting and complex relationships outlined in previous novels. Epic in scope, with a large cast of vivid characters, this belongs in most fantasy collections.
