If you have not yet read anything by Melanie Rawn, prepare to be intrigued! Her political fantasies totally immerse you in her worlds...whichever you choose! Melanie is a talented storyteller who weaves intricate tales in every novel. Each character is masterfully brought to life, yet doesn't overshadow the whole picture.
I have read both the Dragon Prince and Dragon Star series and now I'm trying to patiently await The Captal's Tower.(trying being the operative word!) If you follow Melanie already and haven't visited her Official Site or Fan Club Page...you should they are bursting with info and other links I don't have. If you love the cover art for Mealnie's books, Michael Whelan gets the credit. His other works can be found at Glass Onion Graphics.
