Inexplicably, dragons have become the creatures of choice for fantasy readers. Dragon queen McCaffrey leads off a new treasury, which gathers dragon tales by some of the heavy hitters of the genre, including L. Sprague de Camp, Roger Zelazny, Orson Scott Card, and Gordon R. Dickson. If mystery is more to your liking, Severn House is also offering a hardcover edition of Peters's 1976 Legend in Green Velvet in which protagonist Susan finds love and intrigue in the Scottish Highlands. Severn House books can be ordered directly by calling 800-830-3044. Discounts are available.

It's a light fun read but the plot is rather contrived. Susan's character is annoyingly inconsistent. She is presented as bright and well educated but then she is shown wandering off with people she just met and allowing herself to be talked into doing things she knows she should not do.
If you are looking for an enjoyable way to kill some time this will do but don't expect anything on a par with an Amelia Peabody because this isn't it.
One interesting tidbit, Susan's professor back home in Illinois is Dr. Arnold Bliss....I wonder is he's any relation to Vicky?
This novel was very fast moving and entertaining. The characters were quirky almost to the point of bizarre. I enjoyed it thoroughly and read it in one sitting.

This is a good one. The story is a fast paced type, of people being chased all over Scotland; they are not sure why. Read morePublished on April 10 2002 by A. Y. Smittle
I'm so happy to see this book back in print. This is a popcorn book. Light and fluffy, to be sure, but very satisfying. Romance, humor and suspense are well blended. Read morePublished on Sept. 28 1999
