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
Third Post March 29 Chapters 14-18 (118 pages) dod
Fourth Post April 5 Chapters 19-END (144 pages) snobbery

    I just listened to this on audiobook a couple weeks ago. I’m not quite ready for a reread so soon, but I hope you all enjoy! I have the third book in the series waiting for me to have time for sitting down and reading.

    Sounds like good fun! Please send me the discussion questions. Just got the book from Amazon so am ready to read. Greatly annoyed that I had to buy a real book because there is no Kindle edition–but I’ll get over it.

      Excellent! So glad to have you join us. Discussion questions will be emailed out a few days before each of the posts go up. I’m also on a real paperbook as the library doesn’t have an audioversion (which I thought would be fun).
