Product Description

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.

Format: Hardcover
Usually when I see a book that a lot of people like, I hestitate to buy it- on the reason that most best sellers are predictable stuff concocted to keep your average brainless reader interested.
This one was fantastic. I can say that with my hand on my heart, swearing to god. The characters were intersting, and well-rounded. They act like real people. These aren't some nice bodies concocted to serve a goal that everyone believes in though they don't know why. They all have their own reasons for everything.
This book's romance isn't the soggy stuff of the Last Dragon Lord. People don't love each other with all their hearts because they're of the same blood. They don't exactly love with all their hearts, anyway. Everything about this book is realistic.
This isn't a light read,but after you read it you'll be satisfied. The theme is cliched, but the plot is not. Suspense will grab you and keep you on the edge of your seat.

This book got me hooked on the very first page. It is worth your book time to read it. It has a mixture of romance (who will get who), survival, and total comitment. This book will totally blow your socks off. Read it and you won't regret it. The characters stay human in this wonderful book. They have flaws, feelings, addittude, hopes, wants, and goals. Each character is it's own and you will have not just one favorite character, but you will fall in love with all of them. I'm 14 years old and female and I read alot and this is one book you must pick up and read!

Format: Hardcover
This book contains a fascinating combination of both politics and fantasy. In the island of Sileria, the conquered Silerians hoped for a sovereign nation where they could live freely. As a result of one man, the islanders rose up in protest against the Valdanis. Guardians, assasins, commoners, and waterlords together fought off the overwhelming Valdanis. But at the same time, betrayals within the Silerians occur. This book is very interesting and easy to read, but the negative thing I can say about this book is the lack of suspenseful events.

Romance. Intrigue. Non-Stop Action. Magic. Thrilling Suspense. Laura Resnick rates up there with all the best Fantasy writers. I can't wait to read In Fire Forged.

I stayed up all night reading this book - once I started I couldn't put it down! Some of it is predictable, but that is to be expected. Most of it isn't predictable, and some is downright unpredictable. Good character development. Unfortunately, women (in general) are portrayed as only meant to be breeders. But there are a couple of good strong female characters. What I wish is that the book had a glossary so you could keep track of what all the foreign words meant.
