Book Review: The Elvenbane by Andre Norton & Mercedes Lackey


Two masters of epic fantasy have combined in this brilliant collaboration to create a rousing tale of the sort that becomes an instant favorite. This is the story of Shana, a halfbreed born of the forbidden union of an Elvenlord father and a human mother. Her exiled mother dead, she was rescued and raised by dragons, a proud, ancient race who existed unbeknownst to elven or humankind. From birth, Shana was the embodiment of the Prophecy that the all-powerful Elvenlords feared. Her destiny is the enthralling adventure of a lifetime.


My Review

The Elevenbane is a sweeping tale of power, oppression, and rebellion. The characters are well rounded and thoroughly enjoyable to follow. The fantasy world is interesting and complex, but doesn't overshadow the story.

Shana's journey from the Lair of the dragons to the Citadel of the wizards is fraught with peril. As the young woman struggles to fit into a world she doesn't understand, she slowly learns not only who she is, but who she can become.

Filled with excitement, danger, and dragons. The Elvenbane is a can't miss for any fans of epic fantasy at it's best. Dive into the pages and follow Shana as she proves one person really can change the world. You won't regret it.
