With DRAGON AND PHOENIX (4), Joanne Bertin continues the story of Linden and Maurynna. The Dragonlords discover that in far-off Jehanglan a dragon has been imprisoned and its powers used to stop the phoenix from rebirth. Four dragonlords, including newlyweds Maurynna and Linden, make up the rescue team. Maurynnas inability to Change renders her magically invisible to the Jehanglan priest-mages and her deadly task will be to free the dragon while Linden and the others provide a diversion. Ms. Bertins compelling narrative and vivid imagery provides a wonderful backdrop to another fantasy epic. Fast-paced adventure combined with political intrigue, and her fresh take on dragon lore, makes this an entertaining read. (Nov.)
