When I read co written books especially when I'm familiar with the authors I can usually pick out specific scenes characters plot points etc that I find myself attributing to a specific author Rarely do I read the books where I feel the authors truly blended This book is three tightly braided stories with each story being written solely by one author The end result is a combination rather than a blended work Overall I think the end product turned out uite nicely

The House of the Tiger has skillfully ruled Merina in times of peace But now the indomitable armies of the Emperor Balthasar stand poised to crush the vulnerable citystate And in the enemy's midst is the gray mage Apolon foul necromancer who se. This is overall a really interesting book about a three pronged fight to take back a city conuered by this universe's somewhat problematic version of Alexander the Great The three royal women of Merina first make the decision to surrender the city without a battle and then go into hiding the dowager ueen Adele as her alter ego a or less nun; the ueen Lydana as a previously established identity the beadseller Matild; and Shelyra the princessheir as another previously established identity as a gypsy girl All three women then proceed to fight their own wars against the Emperor Balthasar and his dark mage Apolon until those three seperate wars collide in an all out battle at the temple It's an intrigiuing mix of politics romance intrigue and all out war and definitely an interesting readI do have a few problems though It is really obvious who wrote which sections Andre Norton has a very distinct and somewhat idiosyncratic style as does Mercedes Lackey and Marion Zimmer Bradley comes off as desperately trying to mediate between the two Conseuently the prose doesn't flow very well and I find most of the male characters irritating especially so because Leopold very briefly steals Shelyra's fire I also find the battle at the end incoherent and Lydana's romance leaves a weird taste in my mouth even though I saw it comingStill it's a good book and one that focuses almost exclusively on the efforts of women to rule their nations and defeat a conuerer Well worth a look particularly if you enjoy the other works of Norton Bradley or Lackey

review Tiger Burning Bright

Tiger Burning BrightRves the Dreadful Dark and whose mission it is to satsfy his Master's terrible hungers with living souls the Heart of a Goddess and the blood of a PrincessFor Adele aging Dowager ueen; for ruling ueen Lydana; and for Princess Shelyra lithe impe. Adele Lydana Shelyra are monarchy in a merchant city Invasion ends their reign It is a fight of epic proportions to return the city to peace Magic Gypsies street urchins thieves sea men craftsmen and clergy are all that lie between a city ruled by necromancy I predict David Eddings fans will love this one Since he is love it or hate it in reader's reviews I suspect this book will be too I loved it It is clear that the bad guys are reeeaaaalllly BAD without horrific descriptions that make your skin crawl and divert energy from the plot The good guys are interesting charismatic intelligent courageous and flawed No rooting for the bad guys 'cause they are interesting than the good guys grin I enjoyed the writing style Three author names are on the book However it did not feel disjointed The descriptions were rich detailed but not encumbering
