    Dragonsbane eBook Ì î ePUB nessville.me dragonsbane ebok, Dragonsbane KindleOriginally reviewed at Bookwraiths Dragonsbane is a novel I read upon release back in 1985 Obviously the world was a different place back then I was a different person young teenager and fantasy was of a different flavor Even at the time though I knew that Barbara Hambly had gifted her readers with a refreshingly mature fantasy which would stand the test of timeIn the northlands Jenny Waynest is a not so young any sorceress half trained who splits her time between learning her craft and raising her children The father of Jenny’s brood is Sir John Aversin and he isn’t y

    Dragonsbane eBook Ì î ePUB nessville.me dragonsbane ebok, Dragonsbane KindleDragonsbane is a fantasy book written by the underrated Barbara Hambly It covers about 3 to 4 days for most of the book and the magic in them comes from witches But the real magician here is the author She spins her yarn patiently letting us wait until the things that are simmering come to a boilThe influence of Tolkien is obvious although younger readers might find it subtle But is this book for younger readers? The main characters are grownups with grownup problems I found Jenny charming The entire story is viewed from her POVJenny is a lazy witch She didn't study hard to complete her magical SAT Now she doesn't know whether she's ruing it or not But we as readers know the fact that she is ruing it There is a road trip involved a journey to the capital city of the kingdom I'm happy to say that this part of the

    Dragonsbane eBook Ì î ePUB nessville.me dragonsbane ebok, Dragonsbane KindleHambly writes adults a rarity in the fantasy genre; in particular Dragonsbane is a depiction of middle aged regret of people who because of historical circumstances and personal situations will never achieve what they dream of and somehow Hambly writes it in a way that's not depressing and that appealed to me even as an adolescent unsympathetic to the failure to achieve Also the dragons are coolUnder no conditions read the seuels In fact let us agree that the publishing records lie and no seuels exist We will all be happier that

    Dragonsbane eBook Ì î ePUB nessville.me dragonsbane ebok, Dragonsbane Kindle35 stars though not sure if I should round up for the subversive narrative and character driven writing style because I feel like I should judge this book by the standards of the time period in which it was written the 80s and not judge it by what I normally likeprefer in high fantasy books written much later in the 90s and beyondEven though it's called Dragonsbane and the Dragonsbane is a knight named John Aversin the

    Dragonsbane eBook Ì î ePUB nessville.me dragonsbane ebok, Dragonsbane KindleI had never heard of Hambly but I am impressed In the world of sword and sorcery most authors find it convenient to go the hack and slash route with the beautiful maiden thrown in to make the hero extra heroic Few are willing to invest what Tolkien did in creating a whole world that has humans and other intelligent creaturesHambly is than able in this regard giving us both a deep study of relationships and a threat to the order of the world Her view of magic is complex and nuanced Her other creatures are multi dimensional; each with a uniue weltanschauung She has created a layered plot and gives it time to develop and this makes for satisfying interactions of the charactersWe also receive a very complete view of the choices some women must make and the conseuences of those choices Even good and evil are presented in a way that encourages thought rather than taking sides Magic too is not the looked at as a result but as a processHere is a typical bit

    Dragonsbane eBook Ì î ePUB nessville.me dragonsbane ebok, Dragonsbane KindleOccasionally in discussions of SFF you'll see readers bemoaning the lack of books that feature 1 older women 2 non pretty women 3 mothers who get to do things Dragonsbane has all of these things in interesting ways and while it begins by seeming to be a deconstruction of romantic stories of noble knights slaying evil dragons it is primarily a story of the limits of female ambitionview spoilerWe start the book with Jenny a northern mage rescuing a would be noble sprat of a rescuer from bandits and taking him home to the local lord and her lover John The sprat is seeking John because he's the only known Dragonsbane and the king has a problem with a dragonThe ballads have failed to convey John's broad northern accent his interest in pigs his spectacles his lack of courtly graces and most particularly that both John and Jenny contributed to the killing of

    Dragonsbane eBook Ì î ePUB nessville.me dragonsbane ebok, Dragonsbane KindleA very nice traditional fantasy story that deliberately throws over a handful of clichés for instance our heroes are middle aged lovers prosaically named John and Jenny and the dragon slayer is wry and academic rather than imposing and mart

    Dragonsbane eBook Ì î ePUB nessville.me dragonsbane ebok, Dragonsbane KindleMy first Barbara Hambly book and it is an entertaining discovery An epic fantasy without huge armies clashing without an end of the world as we know it threat without bloated descriptions of dresses or foodstuff It has instead a couple of mature and reluctant heroes with a convincing loving relationship it has a focus of personal introspection and painful life choices it has a well done dragon alien in body and mentalitythe book works well as a standalone and deserves to be considered a classic
