Laura Resnick continues a compelling story arc.
on August 22, 2005
After reading the first novel in the series, In Legend Born, I could hardly wait to tackle The White Dragon - Part one of In Fire Forged. Laura Resnick has created a fully formed continent of multiple nations, cultures, religions, societies and peoples with a fascinating history. Some writers excel at writing action sequences while others depict characters with depth and complexity. Laura Resnick is superb at both. She is unique in her ability to create both male and female characters with equal dexterity. In fact it is her portrayal of women that gives The White Dragon its outstanding appeal. More so than other authors of sword and sorcery she has created a universe in which women are much more than secondary characters. Intrigue and action are woven together in a profoundly exhilarating epic tale. The White Dragon is a continuation of the story that begins with In Legend Born, so I would encourage anyone to read it first. Great story, great writing, great reading.
