The Chrome Borne by Mercedes Lackey
The Chrome Borne

MartyV, August 2, 2014

I was surprised to find this book contains two novels, The Chrome Born and Chrome Circle. I had just finished The Chrome Born which was a fun read. The Chrome Circle has less action and more romance with a surprise new character introduced at the end. When the new character appeared, it was impossible to put down the book until the last page. Neat ending, especially for us romantics.

Born to Run by Mercedes Lackey
Born to Run

Part of a series about elves, mages and things that go bump in the night, this episode adds ghosts who need to learn their way around before taking their next step. I love the ordinary setting with extraordinary events. I'm glad I already have the next episode on my shelf.

Variable Star by Robert A. Heinlein
Variable Star

MartyV, April 9, 2014

If you're craving a good old-fashioned science fiction novel, written with more substance than profanity; if you love to see characters slowly develop complexity; if you want to expand your understanding of people and question how we experience life on and off earth; this is the novel for you. Spider Robinson finished Robert Heinlein's outline and developed a superb story, combining the best of both writers.

Music to My Sorrow (Bedlam's Bard) by Mercedes Lackey
Music to My Sorrow (Bedlam's Bard)

Parents aren't always the good guys, as Eric, Magnus and Ace know all too well. When the parents are also led down a dark path by an evil elf, things get uglier. All the characters I've come to know in this series are here and new ones added. The epilogue hints at even more strange things to come, I can't wait to start the next story.

Sword & Sorceress, No. 13 by Marion Zimmer Bradley
Sword & Sorceress, No. 13

MartyV, February 17, 2014

Published in 1996, this is the 13th collection of outstanding short stories. Some authors are familiar to me from their own novels, some from previous collections, but all are eminently readable. As soon as I gather the whole series, I'm going to start reading them again, from the beginning.
