Publisher's Summary

The powerful magic of ruthless Elvenlord masters has for centuries ruled the world. Even Shana, the legendary Elvenbane prophesied to deliver the oppressed into freedom, is helpless before such power. She and her ragtag band of outcasts, half-blood wizards, escaped human slaves, and free-thinking dragons have gained only a token victory against the mighty lords.
Only the long-forgotten Iron People, a band of human nomads, have escaped the tyranny of the reigning wizards. How have they survived through the centuries?
As the winds of change sweep the world, and as tensions seething beneath the surface of Elven society threaten to break into open revolt, Shana meets the ancient tribe. Could an age-old secret free Shana and her people... or will its discovery call down their doom?

There be Dragons here!

Andre Norton is one of my favorite authors, and here she has teamed up with Mercedes Lackey, and created such a rich world of Elves, Wizards, and Dragons as to be totally amazing. I found this book hard to get into at first, because of the detail, but once I got into it, I was hooked. It tells of Dragons in their home lairs, and gives insight into the lives of Dragons as few novels do. It shows High Elves as the haughty overlords they can be, and tells of the Humans caught in their web. It also shows what can happen when Elves and Humans cross blood!!!
