Elvenblood: Halfblood Chronicles, Book 2 | [Andre Norton, Mercedes Lackey]

Elvenblood: Halfblood Chronicles, Book 2

The powerful magic of ruthless Elvenlord masters has for centuries ruled the world. Even Shana, the legendary Elvenbane prophesied to deliver the oppressed into freedom, is helpless before such power. She and her ragtag band of outcasts, half-blood wizards, escaped human slaves, and free-thinking dragons have gained only a token victory against the mighty lords. Only the long-forgotten Iron People, a band of human nomads, have escaped the tyranny of the reigning wizards.

Publisher's Summary

The powerful magic of ruthless Elvenlord masters has for centuries ruled the world. Even Shana, the legendary Elvenbane prophesied to deliver the oppressed into freedom, is helpless before such power. She and her ragtag band of outcasts, half-blood wizards, escaped human slaves, and free-thinking dragons have gained only a token victory against the mighty lords.

Only the long-forgotten Iron People, a band of human nomads, have escaped the tyranny of the reigning wizards. How have they survived through the centuries?

As the winds of change sweep the world, and as tensions seething beneath the surface of Elven society threaten to break into open revolt, Shana meets the ancient tribe. Could an age-old secret free Shana and her people... or will its discovery call down their doom?

    Would you consider the audio edition of Elvenblood to be better than the print version?

    Enjoyed hearing how the Elven and other names were pronounced. Great voice inflections!

    "There be Dragons here!"

    Andre Norton is one of my favorite authors, and here she has teamed up with Mercedes Lackey, and created such a rich world of Elves, Wizards, and Dragons as to be totally amazing. I found this book hard to get into at first, because of the detail, but once I got into it, I was hooked. It tells of Dragons in their home lairs, and gives insight into the lives of Dragons as few novels do. It shows High Elves as the haughty overlords they can be, and tells of the Humans caught in their web. It also shows what can happen when Elves and Humans cross blood!!!

    What did you love best about Elvenblood?

    The whole book was very engaging.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Elvenblood?

    .


    What does Aasne Vigesaa bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She did a very awesome job with this and the last book.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Most definitely


    Any additional comments?

    This was a great book in the series. Was really waiting for Elvenbred and was sad to hear that Andre had pasted away.
    Mercedes finished Elvenbred, about 1/3 way through it. So far so good.

    "recomend"

    it was a very good book I thought it seemed a little rushed though, it seemed to speed through parts you wanted a little more detail on, and slow down when you thought lets move on to the next bit, overall well worth it.
