I didn't know it was out either, though, actually, at one point I knew it would be out now and forgot.






It was.... (no spoilers)


not quite how I expected it to be. Its not her best book, but it was still good. I don't think I enjoyed it quite as much as I had the prior two.

It is over here. They tend to come out in paperback about a year after they come out in hardcover.

The Dragon Jousters books are pretty good. They're set in what's basically a close sibling to our Ancient Egypt.

Yes, and just like in some of the other books, hearing it has helped me to understand it much better.

Read the series after they had come out. A pretty good yarn, of course I've been partial to dragons for a long time, so it takes a rather disgusting story for me not to like a book with dragons

Unfortunately for this series the author lost me after the first two volumes and I will not buy any more.

The quality of the stories/books is well beneath Lackey's standard, I think.
