Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

The peaceful reign of High Prince Rohan and his Sunrunner wife Sioned faces a serious challenge when the discovery of an ancient scroll and the machinations of Rohan's enemies threaten the life of his son, Pol. Forbidden magic, treachery in high places, and a strong current of romance form a lavish, tapestry-like background for this sequel to The Dragon Prince ( LJ 11/15/88). For most fantasy collections.-- JC

This a great book, and part of a great series.
Brannin
Some may think this book is to long, but a strong story with good character development takes many things and time is one of them.

I love the descriptive writing, and her development of characters.

This book is a very good read, full of adventure, romance, intrigue, magic, and suspense. While first book in this series was a bit slow, this book takes you back to what got you hooked on fantasy novels.

The characters are developed down to the smallest detail. They almost become personal friends. You feel all the excitement, fear, anger, and happiness that they feel.

The story is a typical adventure story, but Ms. Rawn has developed a way of throwing you of the predictable path with many different twists and curves to her plot. Some of which are so far off you want to start over to see if you missed something that could have predicted this event.

The only real issue with this book is that it takes time to develop. Some may think this book is to long, but a strong story with good character development takes many things and time is one of them.

Overall, this is an excellent book. I loved it and have read it many times.

High Prince Roelstra is dead, but Prince Rohan's world faces new threats from within and without as sorcerers, with powers identical and perhaps surpassing the Sunrunners, make their bid for power. A new generation rises to maturity as the children of Dragon Prince take their place in the world, and old characters meet their various fates.... A can't miss for fans of Dragon Prince and fantasy lovers.

No longer a newborn, Pol is introduced as a young adult. Old conflicts are solved and new ones are created, but this book broadens the world that Dragon Prince started.

I absolutely love this book. I have it already and I've read it about five times. I just had to comment on it when I saw it here. I love all the little plot tricks Ms. Rawn puts in, especially that thing with Masul's real father. And it came as such a shock when Rohan found out what Pandsala did! Whenever I remember that this world isn't actually real, that's the biggest shock, because Ms. Rawn just writes so well. You MUST read the entire series! She's also got out the Exiles trilogy, pick that one up too! It's just as good as this one!

Format: Paperback
In Dragon Prince (Book 1), Melanie Rawn introduces us to a distinctive world full of familiar intrigue. A Prince dies, an heir takes over, and remakes his sire's kingdom into his own image. He woos a princess who also happens to be a Sunrunner - this world's version of a mage. They marry, defeat the nasty High Prince and his scheming daughters, and all is right in the world. Well, not quite: one of the scheming daughters managed to imprison the prince and deceive him into having sex with her and of course she immediately gets pregnant - her twisted revenge on him for not picking her as wife. The first book ends with his actual wife - the mage-princess, sacking the tower, stealing the infant, and burning down the castle, killing the evil daughter. The child will be theirs to raise as their own heir, since the mage-princess turned out to be barren. All in all, a good read - something that made you anticipate the next installment.

Well, I can say that, like most movie sequels, the next book did not live up to its billing. The first book tended to drag a bit, and in places was overly simplistic, but compared to this book - and unfortunately its successor Sunrunner's Fire: Dragon Prince #3 - the first book was War and Peace. The plot moved forward at a glacial place and was horribly boring at times - most of this book takes place over the course of three days during their triannual festival. Ugh.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
The storyline is going well so far, set a few years after the previous novel The Dragon Prince. And while the world is vibrant in its colours and its own unique brand of magic, the frequent use of exclamation marks make the characters sound as if they're speaking like high school girls. On an average page of conversation, you will find five to six sentences spoken by adults with exclamation marks, when it's merely a remark about a son coming home, or wearing a yellow dress instead of green. It starts to grate on nerves after a while.

What is even infuriating is the lack of variety amongst the characters. EVERYONE is beautiful, as if it's impossible for the residents of this world to be ugly in any way, shape or form; EVERYONE (on the good side, anyway) is wise and talented, and as for the High Princess, she is just a walking bundle of awesome who looks age twenty at age forty (which is kind of creepy, if you think about it). She is clever, wise, talented, beautiful, [insert laudatory adjective here]... and pretty much loved by everybody. And her beauty description beats you over on the head. E.t.c. In writers' world, that's called a Mary Sue, and High Princess Sioned scored a whopping 97 on Original Fiction Mary-Sue Litmus Test (which ranks as "Kill It Dead"), even without me taking the author-character identity section.

It IS possible to make a female character beautiful, clever, and virtuous without making her a Sue. Unfortunately, Rawn fails utterly in this regard. Pretty much everyone around Rohan and Pol who's a female is virtuous, clever, wickedly witty, and beautiful, with the only exception being Andrade, whom everyone seems to despise most of the time.
