"Exotic, erotic, and packed with surprises."—Michael Moorcock

The character development and interaction is not your typical Tolkein-esque, DnD adventure party. The plot is unique and daring and certainly not "G" rated. If you want magic and intrigue and a deep, vivid, and atmospheric style of writing, this and any of Ms. Constantines works will not dissappointWas this review helpful?

I got half way through this book regretting I ever picked it up. First off NO CHILDREN SHOULD EVER READ THIS BOOK! This is one of the raunchiest pieces of writing I've ever read. Every other chapter has a highly detailed sex scene in it, which wouldn't be so bad except its usually between a brother and sister! This author should be writing for play boy or hustler. The book is complete trash. There's NO action or adventure whats so ever. Your literally just waiting to read who has sex with whom next. Theres Incest, Homosexuality, Orgies, take your pick theres somthing kinky for all the pervs out there. In my opinion the author might want to see a shrink for some impure thoughts she has upstairs, or maybe a priest!
Seriously though I dont mind a good sex scene in a book once in a while but these were just disgusting and it was all the book consisted of. The characters were all immoral and unlikeable and nothing happens in the book except for sex. If your a lonely house wife who wants some twisted erotica read away, anyone else though looking for something a little more like Fantasy/Action/Adventure, keep looking.

SEA DRAGON HEIR Storm Constantine Tor, Feb 2000, $24.95, 384 pp. ISBN: 0312873069 Desiring power, the king of fire, Cassilin of Malagash, conquers the Palindrakes, whose power belongs to the sea. Cassilin¿s archmage takes the Palindrake heir and forces the lad Valraven to swear allegiance to their god Madragore. Her husband dead and her son held hostage, the Lady of Palindrake knows it will take several lifetimes before they throw off the yoke of Madragore¿s denizens, but she vows the power of the sea will surface one day as an unending tidal wave sweeps away the taint of Cassilin. <P>Two centuries later, twins are born to the Palindrakes. The male is forced to adhere to his ancestor¿s vow of fealty to the followers of Madragore. However, the female Pharinet does not have an obligation to Madragore. She begins to learn the magical secrets of the Sisterhood of Dragons who serve Dragon Queen Foy. As the twins begin to return power to the sea dragons, the land turns to darkness even while freedom comes closer and closer for the people of Palindrake. <P>SEA DRAGON HEIR shows why Storm Constantine is one of the most acclaimed authors of epic fantasy novels. The story line is fast-paced and filled with action and magic even as the characters are fully developed. This realm feels genuine because the cast feels real even when magic is used and gods and dragons appear. With novels like the Wraeththu trilogy and this story, genre fans will want more works especially the sequels to this tale, from the talented Ms. Constantine who makes the unbelievable so believable. <P>Harriet Klausner
