Overview

The second volume in Margaret Weis's solo fantasy trilogy-- she is truly the Mistress of Dragons
In "Mistress Of Dragons, we were introduced to a world where political deception and greed have lead to a violation of the "hands off" policy of the Parliament of Dragons concerning the affairs of men. Indeed that violation threatens more than policy and order--it threatens the freedom of the human race.
In "The Dragon's Son, there is a new hope in the form of a special offspring who might be able to bridge the anarchy that is disrupting the delicate and unseen order that the Parliament has tried to protect. The twin offspring of a high priestess and a dragon hold the key to man's future but their identity must be held secret, even from each other, until they have matured. One is raised in a human court, the other in hiding. But the link that exists between the twins will not be broken by mere distance, and the duality of their origin will unlock the new hope for a return to peace and safety as long as they live to maturity. It is up to Draconas, the special emissary of the Parliament, to make it happen for the sake of both Dragonkind and mankind alike despite the evil forces that are still gaining strength around them.

Not too bad!

This one doesn't come up to the first by any means. It's not really a bad listen but it's not all that great either. I truly hope the final book brings it all together and ties up all the loose ends the author has left dangling about in what I believe is an attempt to keep the reader wanting more. Unfortunately the first two books have only left me with a strong desire to have it over and done and a sinking feeling she will end the last one just as disjointedly and unsatisfactorily has she has the first two.

This was an "OK" book, which didn't hold up to what I expected from Weis. I only finished it to see where the story was going to go.

What an ending. I found myself changing what I was doing so I could listen more. What a great tale. I look forward to the conclusion

I was not impressed with this book. It was slow and I really had to struggle to stay interested. Sorry Ms Weis, not one of your better literary attempts.
