Gather round children and cast your minds back to the ye old days of the late 80'searly 90's when fantasy was still very much an underground thing most stories were tedious Tolkien retreads or Dungeons and Dragons sessions put down on paper and writers of the feminine persuasion were notably light on the ground Which makes this book and the various series it spawn so interestingNowadays female fantasy authors are a pretty common sight so it's a bit shocking to consider just how ahead of its time Dragon Prince was in terms of what could be done in a traditional fantasy novel When I first picked it up it was amazed just how different this was from the other fare to be found in bookstores yes books were sold in actual stores Ask your DadWhat Melanie Rawn did with this story was take all the elements of an awesome epic fantasy and mix it with the conventions of a romance novel seasoned with some of the most detailed and compelling examples of world building to be found anywhere The result was something groundbreaking While there are battles galore and fantastical deed by the score the core of this tale is the relationship between Rohan and Sioned the passion that draws them together the dangers and obstacles that block them No final voyages to Valhalla here along the lines of a traditional romance Lancelot and Guinevere Romeo and Juliet or any number of bodice rippers sold by the dozen made magnificent by the inclusion of dragonsToday it's a common enough formula which makes this book something of a groundbreaker It showed to angsty Gen X teenagers at least that fantasy could be than just the slay the dragon while standing on a mountain of skulls That there was room for real emotion and passionIn short a good read Not to mention the cover art by Michael Whelan reason enough to buy the printed versionPosted by Zackery Arbela
