The Novels of Tiger and Del, Volume I
The Novels of Tiger and Del, Volume II: Sword-Maker - Sword Breaker
The Novels of Tiger and Del, Volume III (Sword-Dancer Saga)

In the beginning of this very enjoyable, unique series, we meet Sandtiger, a man who was raised as a nameless orphan, a foreigner from an unknown land and a slave within a nomadic desert tribe. He gained his name and begrudged freedom as a boy when he killed a deadly, venomous sandtiger which had been preying upon members of the tribe. Defeating death, and bearing the beast's claw marks as a distinctive scar upon his face, Sandtiger found a willing teacher who took him in and taught him the skills and honor codes of the sword dancer. Driven, he achieved the highest level of mastery, (7th level) in record time, and went on to become a living legend. Much of the story is narrated by Tiger, mixed with third person perspective. Roberson did an admirable job using this fresh technique; it works well.

When he is not hiring out his services as a sword dancer in order to settle disputes or matters of honor, Tiger, who is in his mid-30's, spends his time in cantinas, drinking and womanizing. It is within such an establishment that he is tracked down by young, beautiful Delilah, a fair skinned woman with blonde hair from the far north who carries a sword (unheard of for a female) and claims to be a sword dancer.

Format: Paperback
I wasn't sure what to expect after reading the first two books. I can't say I care for the single poing-of-view writing, it was monotonous. I would have stopped after book two if not for the way it ended. All I knew at the end of book two, was... oh my god, what a cliff hanger. I have to read the next book. Book three and four were good too, same consistency, strong characters, evolving story line, single point-of-view narrative. At the end of book four, I was happy to learn there was a conclusion with book five and six. That's where my good review ends.

I felt the characters in the last two book were watered-down versions of the original characters we met, Del especially. She was no longer the equal partner in CHARACTER with Tiger. As for the final ending of book six, the last hundred pages were just too convenient, obvious and expected. I could understand the why's of the final ritual (before the final dance), but felt there were so many other options than the one chosen. He had several years before he really had to make a final decision.

I doubt I would have read beyond book two if it hadn't ended on a cliff hanger. I was tired of not knowing what any of the other characters thought. It was like a one-sided story which included another main character. Unique writing style yes, but by book six I was tired of reading what only one person thought. Overall, there wasn't a lot of dialog, just Tiger's point-of-view.

I can't say enough about this series. I am NOT a big "epic fantasy" reader but these had everything I love: romance, action, suspense, humor and above all just GOOD writing. I always shy away from these types of books because I can be picky about not wanting too much gore/violence and I hate fantasy worlds that are too complex or hard to understand. NOT SO with this series. Not too gory and never too complex. You don't have to be a rocket scientist to understand them but at the same time, they are brilliantly and beautifully written so you always want to read more. The storyline kept getting better and better and I can't ask for much more than that! Love Tiger and Del and I recommend these to any fantasy reader!

Ps.. I should also let it be known that I wasn't sure how I would feel when I started these about every book being in Tigers voice, but man was it refreshing! He is one of a kind, hilarious, vulnerable and at times, very innocent and .. Unworldly maybe? Perfect example.. Him not really knowing what a newborn baby looks like lol. I just totally fell in love with him and loved seeing everything in his eyes.

pps.. these need to be a miniseries or something, please!!

I've always had a hidden love for this series. It well-written; has two strong main characters who are both likeable (along with a disreputable horse who isn't so likeable); an interesting world; and a sense of humor. It doesn't always take itself seriously, but there are also well-written scenes of heartbreak and sorrow. Things don't always go heads-up for the main characters, and since they're so strong, they don't always get along. They muddle through it, though, and make it on their own. I've always liked them a lot.

This book makes you laugh and at the same time it is action packed and you can really identify with with the Sand Tiger. I would like to see another book by Jennifer Roberson in this series.The Novels of Tiger and Del, Volume III (Sword-Dancer Saga)
