I'm sooo happy this series is continuing! I wasn't around when it was first published but just recently discovered it and I'm so glad I did! I ended up reading all the books in a couple months. I can certainly understand why so many people are happy to see Tiger and Del again doing what they do best! It literally felt like no time had passed at all, this author knows her characters and knows how to write! And I LOVE the way she reminds her readers about things from previous books without going overboard. Even though I read these close together, it was still helpful because you really do find yourself forgetting some things in an eventful series such as this.
The first half started out a little slower than I was used to with these books, however it was sooo nice to see the domestic side to Tiger and how he and Del have settled into a happy home and life together. There were so many heartfelt beautiful moments between them, a nice change from the start of the series! And Sula is just adorable! I was glad we got to see more of Neesha and look forward to seeing HIS future unfold as well. Things pick up in the second half, and the ending was where I was biting my lip the most!
The only thing I'm unsure of is Tiger and his newfound magic... I have so many questions.. does he now have only 10 years to live again? Does the book inside him somehow counteract that? And did he heal Del so she can possibly have kids again? And where the heck is Samiel now? I can't help wanting him to pour all his magic back OUT because its just rubbing me the wrong way and I don't have a good feeling about it. PLUS I have no idea when the next book is expected to come out and that is definitely NOT a good thing. But Knowing we will at least have a book 8 is good enough for now. Can't wait to continue and I will definitely be re-reading this one!
What a joy being back in the world of Swords, Sand and a certain Stud. It was like catching up with an old friend. You start the book finding Tiger & Del settled down, running a school teaching sword dancers and trying (without success) to keep 2 year old Sula clean. But the story doesn't stay with them in this domestic setting, no Tiger's son convinces them to go off on another adventure. And boy howdy do they find more adventures than I'm sure they wanted.
What an incredible read. Like any good adventure story things quickly start to look really bad for the home team. Jennifer doesn't pull any punches, and you never know who's going to survive, who's going to get injured and how they're going to get out of the next mess. This book just keeps you turning pages, wanting, no NEEDING to know what's going to happen next.
I can't wait for the next one now!
BTW, the same goes for The Chronicles of the Cheysuli. Unbelievably fantastic from page one in book one to the last page in the last book, # 8 or so. Ms. Roberson's imagination never stops introducing new and novel ideas. And her integrity is well depicted in her main characters. Thank you.
This deep into a series, many authors become 'stale' or the story becomes just a regurgitation of earlier adventures.. not so with Tiger and Del's newest tale.
If you are a fan of Tiger and Del, this is a must-read!
Well written and rounded characters that keep you spell bound within the story because you truly care what happens to them.
A gem of a series that shows you what a good relationship/marriage could/should be.
Thanks for the awesomeness, Ms. Roberson!
Now to find my own Tiger... heh heh...
