From the Author
In a war-torn land, five enemies unite to free their people.
Although I've written about thirty sf/f short stories and (pat, pat) won the 1993 John W. Campbell Award as best new sf/f author, IN LEGEND BORN is my first fantasy novel. (Prior to this book, I wrote 13 romance novels as Laura Leone, and also one non-fiction book, A BLONDE IN AFRICA, as Laura Resnick -- which is my real name.) I tried to write the kind of story I love to read, an epic adventure about good and evil where characters are torn between love and duty, sacrifice and ambition, guilt and redemption. I love reading a page-turner and I think it's the obligation of every author, whether writing popular fiction or literary tomes, to keep the reader riveted. If someone can put down my book easily, then I haven't done my job well.
