Joanne Bertin, a new storyteller of considerable note, brings her spiffy debut novel to paperback in September. An irresistibly fresh take on dragon lore, THE LAST DRAGONLORD (4) deals with a crisis in the country of Cassori. The presence of three were-dragons is required to determine who should be appointed guardian to the new, orphaned ruler. For Linden Rathan, however, the journey may finally provide the opportunity to find his soul-twin mate. Ms. Bertin approaches her characters in an entertaining and different manner, giving them a beguiling depth and richness as she weaves intriguing magic for our reading pleasure.
