    Fantastic sequel that can stand alone

    I originally read this not knowing it is the sequel to Talyn and I loved it. Really original with strong characters and fully developed storyline. I am not in love with everything from this author, but I think there is ar least 1 more great story on this series to be written. I would love to find out what happened to the lost horse clans.

    Good (but not great) for a rainy weekend.

    I've followed Holly Lisle ever since she wrote a series of books with Steve Stirling that were this type of fantasy-female protagonist stuff. Sadly, she isn't as good at it by herself as she was long ago in the dream-team days. Still, she's not bad, and I read this through and enjoyed it. Her stuff is more about how people felt, not how they cut each other up or engaged in small-unit tactics and weapons. I bought the book because I respect her as an author and wish to keep encouraging her until she gets it right. You all might think it's easy to crank this stuff out, but it's really, really hard, and she did a fairly good job of it; it's just not to my taste - yet.

    The second Korre fantasy (see TALYN) is an exciting fantasy thriller

    In Korre, Aaran is an experienced very successful ¿veteran tracker of slaves¿ having attacked slave ships on the seas to free the human cargo. However, his mission this time is personal he seeks his missing sister, who disappeared without a trace a long time ago. He knows the trail is cold, but feels he must try.------------- The female slave has achieved the impossible twice first surviving the abuse of her owner the Osselene Order and second somehow becoming an oracle, Hawkspar the demigoddess. She has learned of a nefarious plot that could eradicate a race and knows how to save the lives of thousands by using her skill to change the flow of Time through the amulet Eyes of War, but at the cost of her life. However this former slave needs to be rescued before she beginsand Aeran hears her magical song.-------------- The second Korre fantasy (see TALYN) is an exciting thriller that feels like Dungeoens and Dragons on the open sea as much of the non-stop action occurs on oceans. The story line is fast-paced from the onset as one adventure follows another. However all the escapades also keep most of the cast from being fully devleoped especially villains. Still this is an engaging entry as HAWKSPAR who has not lived a gentle life finds herself caught in a personal dilemma between being a dead heroine for people who have mistreated her or a live coward.-------------- Harriet Klausner
