    The wait is over and the book proves to be as mystifying and electrifying as the first one. 'In Fire Forge I: The White Dragon' keeps you wanting for more. I can't stop reading until the last page. I love how Tansen's bravery, Mirabar's courage & Josarian's humility & legacy, Najdan's loyalty were all binded together to produce such story that even now, people of all ages can relate to. Now, I can't wait to pick up where the story left off with 'In Fire Forged II: The Destroyer Goddess'. Once again, Laura Resnick proves to be the best of them all!!!

    Can't wait for Part II

    After centuries of foreign tyranny, led by Josarin the Firebringer, the island people of Sileria have thrown out their alien masters the Valdani and gained freedom. To succeed at his endeavor, Josarian merged opposing groups into a force, but once victory was achieved, the band split into the bitter rivals they had been before the Firebringer united them. The termination of the confederation occurs when The Waterlord White Dragon of Kilorian kills Josarian. Civil war between the fire sorcerers and the Honored Society led by its notorious water wizards breaks out.<P> Josarian trusted second in command Tansen is the last hope for freedom on the island. Mirabar had previously led her people in the revolt. She must decide whether to trust her natural enemy Tansen or ally herself with her side of the civil war. The problem she confronts is that this Tansen is in her visions and dreams seemingly as the anointed one the Gods said was coming to lead all people. <P> The first tale in the ¿In Fire Forged¿ series is an action packed, exciting fantasy that provides a key message involving freedom in a land in which recent history is brutally tyrannical. The story line works because key players like Tansen and Mirabar seem real in a realm where Gods interfere in everyday life and magic works. Fans of powerful fantasy will want to read THE WHITE DRAGON: IN FIRE FORGED AS Laura Resnick proves she more than just the daughter of a renowned author, but instead Mike is the father of a renowned writer.<P> Harriet Klausner

    Oh yeah!

    From the previous book by Laura Resnick, titled 'In Legend Born' we return to the land of Sileria. Josarian's second-in-command (and bloodbrother) is Tansen. He takes up where Josarian left off. Tansen must now lead the shallaheen and the Guardians against the waterlords. ............ Zarien is fourteen and one of the sea-born. He is chosen by the sea goddess, Sharifar, to seek out her new consort who currently dwells on land. Zarien does not know the name of the consort. He is only told to seek him out and return with him to the sea. ............. Mirabar 'Sirana' is a prophetess. An Otherworldly demigod known only as 'the Beckoner' informs her to be ready for a new Yahrdan. Her protector is an assassin named Najdan. The two will be major players in Tansen's plans. .............. Kiloran is an old waterlord. It was Kiloran that summoned the White Dragon earlier. His plans are growing. .............. **** Laura Resnick entices her fans anew with this novel. Even though this is 'part one' it picks up where a previous book (In Legend Born) ends. The second part is due for release in December 2003. It will be titled 'The Destroyer Goddess'. ............ Even if you did not read 'In Legend Born' you will easily understand all that is happening. The beginning gives short and detailed information on all that previously occurred. However, if you have read the previous title, everything will feel more real to you. ........... The story is filled with realistic characters. Each seem to have their own personality and culture. Yet the author succeeds in blending them all together for an incredible tale of war, magic, and betrayal! Recommended reading. ****
