5.0 out of 5 stars Great Fun And Much Better Than Joust, 7 May 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: Alta (Dragon Jousters (Hardcover)) (Hardcover)
Mercedes Lackey follows on from Joust (think dragons in ancient Egypt) (no, really) with Alta, which follows on so closely it actually overlaps with Joust, giving us another perspective on Vetch's flight from serfdom. Joust mainly concerned itself with world and character building & now here in Alta we get actual plot, as Vetch arrives in his homelands and has to find a place for himself and his half grown dragon Avatre in what proves to be a complicated and treacherous land. I don't want to give too much away, but let me tell you although I found Joust a bit of a one-note tune, fun to read once, but not really worth a re-read, Alta is far superior. Lackey has really pulled out the stops to give us a rich, beguiling world full of appealing characters and complex situations. Give it a go! I'm really looking forward to the third one now, and feeling slightly less sore at Lackey's three year embargo on writing any new Valdemar books...
