Dragon Prince Re-Read
Just wanted to mention that I'm beginning my re-read of Melanie Rawn's Dragon Prince and Dragon Star trilogies tonight.
Dragon Prince is one of my favorite fantasy novels and one that has lingered with me over the years. It's probably been at least ten years since I've read it, though so many of the details still come starkly across my memory. I love this book.
I'm less familiar with the other novels. I've read The Star Scroll and Sunrunner's Fire a couple of times, but have less recall (I do remember some rather important moments, though). My high school library only had copies of the first and third Dragon Star novels, so that's all I've read of those, and only once each. Except for one very memorable and heartbreaking scene in Stronghold, I'll have an almost fresh experience for the second trilogy.
Very much looking forward to this re-read.
Also, check out Michael Whelan's cover art. Gorgeous. This cover marked the first time I ever really thought about where the covers came from and notice the artist as an artist.
