To Ride a Rathorn,
This review is from: To Ride A Rathorn (Hardcover)
Having waited a long time for this sequel, I wasn't disappointed but neither was I fully satisfied! I want to know what happens next!!! but given the normal timescales for PC Hodgell's sequels, us fans will be waiting for a while. Groan...
In this book, Jame follows true to form and the previous books' storyline is continued. Our heroine is not quite hapless, but she is almost defiant in the fact that she gets herself into situations that normal Kencyrs can't fathom.
From accidently blood-binding a rathorn, challenging the Ardeth's High Lords' hold over her brother, learning more about her ancestors and ultimately helping to redeem Tentir's shame. On top of it all, Jame must also contend with her own awakening awareness of the opposite sex, not least her own brother... Will her people's prophecy, for the production of `The Kencyr Saviour' to fight the encroaching darkness, lie with her?
It's really exciting to read, you can almost see the different threads leading to one ultimate climatic sequel. I have one request - bring back Bane in the next sequel!
Ps Blood and Ivory was a waste of space.
