Overview

With her widely acclaimed, bestselling fantasy trilogy, Dragon Prince, Melanie Rawn opened an enchanted gateway to a spellbinding universe of Sunrunner’s magic and sorcerous evil, of a ruler fighting to bring peace to a world of warring kingdoms, and of the dragons—deadly dangerous yet holding the secret to wealth beyond imagining.

Now, in Stronghold, the first novel of Melanie’s new Dragon Star trilogy, there is a devastating new challenge to the power of both the High Prince Rohan and Andry, Lord of the Sunrunners at Goddess Keep, as a mysterious and seemingly unstoppable invasion force swarms across their lands. For Andry it signals the start of a nightmare made real, the horrifying fulfillment of his long ago visions of his homeland in flames, and he will draw upon even the forbidden sorcerer’s magic in an attempt to destroy this enemy which is bent on the extermination of all Sunrunners.

Rohan and his son Pol will also fight the enemy with every weapon at their command—from their valiant warriors, to conjurations with sun, moons, and stars, to the terrifying presence of the dragons, to the unforgiving wrath of the Desert itself. Yet soon they begin to fear that this invasion may prove not only the end of their dream of an unbreakable peace but the beginning of the end of their entire world….

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Prince Rohan's dream of peace through law rather than might undergoes a difficult test as foreign invaders bring war to a land already strained by the tension be tween Rohan's heir and the ambitious Lord of Goddess Keep. Vivid descriptions and compelling characters lend depth to this large-scale story of adventure and intrigue, romance and magic. Set in the world of the author's ``Dragon Prince'' trilogy, this is highly recommended.

Melanie Rawn keeps the suspension all through the tale. Never is there a boring part. It tells a tale of bravery, love, family, courage,pain, death, betrayal, and the bond between a father and his son. As war havocs a nation, princes are forced to gather under the rule of a beloved High Prince. They fight together against this unknown force, traitors, and the ever menacing Lord of Goddess Keep who creats his own planes to take over Princemarch. I have fallen in love with this fasinating novel. I would reccomend it to every one I know, and I have. I hope you read this story and feel the joy that I did.

I've read all the Dragon Prince novels and loved them but this was the first book to ever make me feel heartbroken but still longing for more.It would be best if you read all books before this so the impact can truely be felt.
