sorceress and mother of Aversin's sonsBut at the decadent Court nothing was as expected Rebellion threatened the land Zyerne a sorceress of seemingly unlimited power held the King under 35 stars though not sure if I should round up for the subversive narrative and character driven writing style because I feel like I should judge this book by the standards of the time period in which it was written the 80s and not judge it by what I normally likeprefer in high fantasy books written much later in the 90s and beyondEven though it s called Dragonsbane and the Dragonsbane is a knight named John Aversin the whole story is told from the perspective of his mageborn partner Jenny It s through her that we see and come to understand this Medieval Scotland inspired world the magic within it and the dragons And it s through her that we see the hardship of the mageborn and we see who holds the true power in this story and in this worldAs for John he s not only a knight but a country knight and a pig farmer too which comes much to the surprise of Gareth the crown prince when he comes seeking the Dragonsbane to slay the dragon John is not at all what he expected and all the hopes and dreams he had of the Dragonsbane as a noble knight in shiny armor are shattered upon their first meeting It s uite funny I laughed all the way through that first scene of them together and afterward every time John speaks there s cause for snickeringJohn and Jenny have been together for awhile they have two sons and have slain a dragon together All in all they ve been through a lot together and there s a sense of ease strength and security in their relationship the kind that can withhold all kinds of storm together You don t often see this kind of lasting bond in genre fiction and it s yet another thing that sets it apart from other of its kind Although neither John nor Jenny is what we expect of a knight and mage Gareth the crown prince is exactly what we expect of a sheltered inexperienced starry eyed young prince At least in the beginning of the story he s like that After meeting John and Jenny he comes face to face with the reality of his dragon problem and grows up uickly And then he accompanies them on their uest to slay the dragon and grows up some so that by the end of the uest there isn t that much of that starry eyed young prince left in him for which I was grateful because that guy was annoying especially when looked at from Jenny s perspectiveThe only weak link in this story that I could find is the man eater antagonist Zyerne She s a bit too muahahahaha for my taste I prefer villains to be subtle and to withhold information instead of flaunting it Unfortunately Zyerne is definitely in the flaunt it camp There s not much depth or complexity to her and I wished there had been layers or sides or personality Something to give her purpose than just being the force of darkness out to get our heroes I liked this book a lot upon first finishing it than I do now But now Now that I ve some time to process the story as a whole my interest and enjoyment of it is waning I think it s the combination of the slow pace it took over half the book for me to get into the story and characters and Zyerne s shallow characterization that kept me from being fully engaged But since this is the first book of the series I understand the necessity of the slow pace and gradual world building effort Barbara Hambly had put in to lay the groundwork for the rest of the seriesOne of my favorite scene is Gareth meeting John for the first time and realizing he s the Dragonsbane Still Gareth had not spoken Aversin interpreting his silence and the look on his face with his usual fiendish accuracy said I d show you my dragon slaying scars to prove it but they re placed where I can t exhibit em in publicIt said worlds for Gareth s courtly breeding and Jenny supposed the peculiar stoicism of courtiers that even laboring under the shock of his life and the pain of a wounded arm he swept into a very creditable salaam of greeting When he straightened up again he adjusted the set of his cloak with a kind of sorry hauteur pushed his bent spectacles a little firmly up onto the bridge of his nose and said in a voice that was shake but oddly determined My lord Dragonsbane I have ridden here on errantry from the south with a message for you from the King Uriens of Belmarie He seemed to gather strength from these words settling into the heraldic sonority of his ballad snatch of golden swords and bright plumes in spite of the smell of
