Let me state first, that Dragonsbane, the predecessor of Dragonshadow, remains one of my all-time favorite books. Barbara Hambly added a depth and dimension to the dragon fantasy that was most welcome to me. When I learned that (after many years) a sequel was finally coming, I purchased Dragonshadow immediately. Unfortunately, my anticipation greatly exceeded the reality in this case. While it is well-written, with good character attention, I found Dragonshadow darker, and quite depressing in tone. While in itself, that is not bad, nothing is ever done to ease the tension, and the ending is very unsatisfying. I found the subsequent book, Night of the Demon Queen equally unsatisfying, although it was pretty much a 'must read' considering the ending of Dragonshadow. Taken on their own merit, and not compared to Dragonsbane, I suppose they may be enjoyable to some, if you are into the whole demonic possession/slavery/tortured soul theme.

A dark book in a dark series of books. Generally, Hambly's books generally lead to the triumph by that'something' within us all. These books do not contain that hint of the light at the end of the gloom. This book(and the next, which has long been out) is sort of like Glen Cook's work, but without the humor. Perhaps this is where all the wizards went... (I will, of course, buy the next book as soon as I can get my hot little hands on it. Hambly, at her worst, is twice as good as 99% of the rest of the field.)

I got this book without reading Dragonsbane, I hadn't even heard of it before, actually. But I picked up the story right away. I stayed in my room and read it as much as I could in my spare time. I would recommend this book to anyone. Enjoy!
