    Joust by Mercedes Lackey

    This is another coming-of-age story by Mercedes Lackey that she does so well. This story is powerful and emotional, like so many of Mercedes Lackey's first book in a new series. (This is a pattern with her. Pretty much every first book in a series she does is a powerful coming of age story). The dragons in this story are fairly unique compared to others. They are characters in their own right, though not speaking or human intelligence. They are definitely not stupid either. If you haven't read this story, and you like fantasy, this is definitely worth a read.
  2. Mercedes Lackey excels at telling stories of the coming of age of characters blessed... and cursed... with special powers. Lavan is an interesting young man with a tragic story. This story truly pulls at your heartstrings, which is one of the things Mercedes Lackey really excels at. If you like reading fantasy stories, this story is well worth the read!
  3. The first book in this trilogy, Magic's Pawn, is one of the most powerful books I have ever read. I've reread it a few times over the years and it makes me cry every single time I read it. It's really emotionally moving. Mercedes Lackey has stated that her formula is simple: Make the reader love the character and then drop a mountain on the character. The first novel is deeply touching and heart-wrenching. The full trilogy is powerful as well. The second and third novels are not as powerful to me as the first, but they are still very good. The entire trilogy covers the life of the character and the sheer amount of stuff he has to go through. I can't recommend the books strongly enough. From Amazon: There are something like 35 novels set in this world now. I own them all and have read all but 5. It is really scary just how much writing Mercedes Lackey does. I also have her Joust series, which I really like a lot too. I still have to check out her Urban Fantasy series which has a dozen more books in it. If you are only going to do one... do this one: Let me know if you feel the same about the book. Or if you decide to check it out.
