Overview

Dragon and Phoenix by Joanne Bertin

Once every thousand years the phoenix of Jehanglan burns to death in a magical release. For millennia the emperors of Jehanglan have tried to harness the awesome power of the phoenix's rebirth. One has finally succeeded, using black magic and the enslavement of a dragon.

Far away at the Crown of the World, Dragon-lord Linden and his new wife, Maurynna, are trying to live the life of happy newlyweds. But all is not well. Since her first Change into dragon-form, Maurynna has been unable to duplicate it. And as her inability to Change drives her into a dark abyss of depression, Linden begins to doubt the love he was once so sure of...

At this time of personal crisis, these two must journey to Jehanglan and marshall all of their diplomatic and martial skill to penetrate the treachery of the empire and set free the phoenix. But to do so they must face the dragon--the dragon who just might be a Dragonlord gone mad....

Read an Excerpt


Dragon and Phoenix
OneYear of the Phoenix 1008 * The Harem of the Imperial Palace * JehanglanLura-Sharal was deadShei-Luin bowed her head as her sister's body was carried away for burning, borne upon a litter of ebony by four burly eunuchs. A cloth of the imperial gold silk covered the girl's slight form. What did it matter?Lura-Sharal was dead.Shei-Luin knew she should be proud of that mark of the emperor's favor. But all she wanted was her elder sister back. What would she do without the wise and gentle words of Lura-Sharal guiding her?She watched as the litter disappeared through the door. Tears streamed down her cheeks; she wanted to run screaming after it, to hurl herself upon her sister and beg Lura-Sharal to tell her it was but a jest, to hold her, to sing and dance with her once more. She yearned to run away and ride the wide open plains again as Zharmatians with Yesuin, their childhood friend.Ah, Phoenix, if only they could all be free once more ...But now Yesuin was a hostage to the uneasy peace between his father's tribe and the Jehangli.And Lura-Sharal was dead.A hand came down with jarring force upon Shei-Luin's shoulder. She jumped, and looked up to find Lady Gei's masklike face hovering over her."Come," the lady said. Her voice held no sympathy. "Come; the Phoenix Lord has seen you and grants you the favor of his company. For you are also of the seed of Lord Kirano; it is time to do your duty, girl. At thirteen you are old enough.""But I am n--" Shei-Luin broke off. To speak the truth would be to close the path she suddenly saw open before her. Shei-Luin turned her head to hide her slip of the tongue.The fingers on her shoulder tightened like bands of steel. Empty inside, Shei-Luin went where they led. Eyes filled with jealousy and hatred followed her as she went deeper into the perfumed sanctum of the harem to be made ready.And afterward ...She bowed her head. But only for an instant; she would not shrink from her fate or from Xiane Ma Jhi, Phoenix Lord of the Skies. For she knew a thing that no one else alive now remembered.She stared straight ahead, her eyes dry now.Copyright © 1999 by Joanne Bertin

I really loved this book. When I started reading it I couldn't put it down. I'd rather read then eat or sleep. If you hadn't read the prequel,The Last DragonLord, it wouldn't have made much sense. But it was a wonderful book. Joanne Bertin discribed everything to a beautiful detail. It did leave you hanging a little at the end, but that's what the sequel, Bard's Oath, is for;) I can't wait to read Bard's Oath, but I can't seem to find it anywere. If anyone knows were I can get it please e-mail me. Maurynna changes a lot during this book, as does many of her campanions. In The Last DragonLord, the book mostly delt with Linden and Maurynna. Dragon and Phoanix is much the same but with a much more complicated backstory and characters. Again, Joanne Bertin did a wonderful job on both books, I recommend them highly!

I, Tierra Titonic, daughhter of Athena and owner of Byron, Glaciersong, and Fawkes am leaving. I do not fit in at Dragon Stables, and I am travel around instead of stay in one place. I have not stayed at place for more than a year for almost 4 years. So, I am saying goodbye to all my good friends and leaders. But I am leaving these gift baskets for everyone filled with chocolates and other stuff. *places down box of large baskets, and gets on Byron and rides away* BYE!!!!!!!

The Last Dragonlord sets the stage for Dragon and Phoenix. I love how Liden has a soultwin and they go on a facinating journey to free a truedragon.

i loved the last dragonlord but this one wasn't nearly as good. it wasn't gripping or funny, just a little entertaining. if you want a book to read then this is for you. if you want a book to become engrossed in and can't put down, then don't read it.

After reading the first book (The Last DragonLord) I knew I had to read the second in the series. And I was not disapointed. Though it started out a little bit slow it was all made up for with the amazing ending. Wow what an ending I have only read one or two books the even come close the the great ending this book had. I am eagerly awaiting Joanne Bertin's next book. Bard's Oath
