Book Review: Skyhold

Title Skybowl (Dragon Star, Book 3)
Author Melanie Rawn
Rating ****1/2
Tags fantasy, series, dragons, telepathy, sunrunners 

This is the 3rd book of the second series by Melanie Rawn set in the world of Sunrunners, who ride light to communicate and raise fire. The two trilogies take the world through a series of crises, ending with an invasion by a grim foe that kills without mercy.

Four of the six books are over 500 pages, so reading the whole series is a real commitment. In the middle of the fifth book, after trying to keep all the characters and events straight, some might wonder if it is worth it. But in the end, it is well worth it. The characters got inside my head more than almost any others I've read. Highly recommended.

The six books in the series are, in order, Dragon Prince, The Star Scroll, Sunrunner's Fire, Stronghold, The Dragon Token, and Skybowl.
