sj of Snobbery and I are teeming up to read The Elvenbane, Book 1 of the Halfblood Chronicles, by two of the greats of Fantasy, Andre Norton and Mercedes Lackey. Now both of us have read this before; for me, it has been…er…maybe 2 decades, so I have forgotten a good amount. I do remember really enjoying it. Here is a little blurb about it from goodreads:
This is the story of Shana, a halfbreed born of the forbidden union of an Elvenlord father and a human mother. Her exiled mother dead, she was rescued and raised by dragons, a proud, ancient race who existed unbeknownst to elven or humankind. From birth, Shana was the embodiment of the Prophecy that the all-powerful Elvenlords feared. Her destiny is the enthralling adventure of a lifetime.
Here is the schedule we worked out:
The Elvenbane 566 pages (trade paperback)
First Post March 15 Chapters 1-6 (154 pages) dab of darkness
Second Post March 22 Chapters 7-13 (150 pages) snobbery
