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

"A splendid blend of the talents of two excellent storytellers” (Anne McCaffrey)
"One of the season’s liveliest and most appealing fantasy epics.” (Publishers Weekly)
“A brisk, glittering yarn that packs as much action, suspense, and twisting of conventions into one novel as many writers invest in whole trilogies.” (Amazing Stories)
I'm a fan of fantasy both epic and contemporary, I cant get enough of it!
I loved that the book well thought out, the hierarchy of the Elves, Humans, and Dragons grabbed my attention from the first chapter and kept me listening all the way through. Great story.
I'd rather not say. Its a major plot point.
Shana; a halfelven girl raised by dragons.
The Battle Begins.
Authors take to long to get to the point. They spend to much time showing how evil the evil is, and how bad things are for the humans. This book took too much time to get to the real storyline which is really good.
The Overall story line is great. There is a good plot, lots of twists and turns but sometimes a little predictable.
The performance of the story really brought it to life, I will be listening to the next book and probably reading the last of the series. Really good characters and world, my only complaint is that it seems like the authors spent more time building the world than in telling the adventure. I would have thought the war with Darien would have been long and involved and more telling...instead of an explosion, no answers and it's over. We'll see.....maybe it's in the next book
Wonderful narrator. Such a slow and depressing start. Took a while to pick up but when it did- it had a great ending!
I read so I can write
This story is slow getting started and drags at various places throughout, but is fairly good at the end. It is not Mercedes Lackey's best. I personally prefer the books she writes solo.
A continuation of The Elven Blood, Andre Norton and Mercedes Lackey team up to reveal more of the rich world they created in the first novel, with our favorite Dragons aligning themselves with our Wizard Heroine to help defeat the High Elves and free all of their slaves - a task easier said than done. Aasne Vigesaa did a great job of narrating both stories, with many different voices for all of the characters, and there were plenty of them.
Tell a more consistent story. Actually write an ending. Communicate with the other writer.
It seems that they were afraid of violence, but the story they created called for it in many chapters. They went into depth at times then glossed over other critical events to the degree of appearing to have fallen asleep.
nice pace, good lore and characters, gentle twists and turns, looking forward to more from this author
Hot romance/Sci Fi we're so lucky to have Audible to feed our book addictions. I love walking my precious dog Sydney & listening to my books
A good story but i found my-self loosing interest in several parts. I basically enjoyed the story though and found the narrator good.
