"Impressive… Melanie Rawn is good!"
—Anne McCaffrey, bestselling author of The Dragonriders of Pern
"I am mad (petulant, in fact!) that I can't immediately read book number two in the Exiles trilogy.... Melanie Rawn has established beyond doubt that she is a great writer of fantasy and The Ruins of Ambrai will join the Dragon series in my library of favorites for years to come."
—Realms of Fantasy on The Ruins of Ambrai
"Rawn's talent for lush descriptions and complex characterizations provides a broad range of drama, intrigue, romance, and adventure. Her depiction of Lenfell's unique matriarchal society adds further texture to this densely woven fantasy tapestry." —Library Journal on The Ruins of Ambrai
"Romance, intrigue, magic, and myth mingle freely in this first of a series that should appeal to readers of fantasy and epic romance." —Library Journal on The Dragon Prince
