This is a wonderful Fantasy series for the sort of reader who enjoys extensive world building and interactions with mythological creatures. Much of it takes established mythology and forges new connections between different types of creatures, while taking us through some exciting adventures.
There is magic of a believable kind and most fun for me, Dragons!
If you've enjoyed Pern, Amber, Sanctuary, Darkover and other imaginary worlds, this one is for you. However if your definition of Fantasy is Fantasy Romance, look elsewhere.
