Dragon's Treasure Book Review Summary

Detailed Plot Synopsis of Dragon's Treasure


Elizabeth A Lynn
Ace, Sept 2004, 23.95 336 pp.
ISBN 0441011969

The Crimson Dragon Karadur Atani rules Dragon Keep with a fair and even hand. The peasants respect him because they know peace in a world at war and believe he can keep his dragon side under control so no innocents gets hurt. A bandit family lives on his lands. When they kill a farmer he burns them and their house out of existence except for their leader Treion and one of his friends.

Only Maia is left of her family; she becomes a herbalist to his people. Treion becomes a bandit and draws other to his banner but when he is caught and claimed by Lord Sarnia because he killed the man's mistress; much to his own surprise Karadur rescues him and punishes him. He offers him his freedom if he works for him for one year. He also takes Maia as his mistress and only she can lift him up from a depression when a trusted friend leaves his service for reasons unknown to him

Elizabeth A Lynn, a master fantasist, has written a beautiful adult fairytale starring a dragon who lives much of the time as a man and interacts with humans more than he does his own kind. The nature of the bond between Karadur and the outlaws is one that will probably be examined in a future book because there are relationships that need to be revealed. Karadur is the main protagonist who spends his time killing his enemies, avoiding war coming to his territory and trying to insure his tenants are treated fairly. Maia who loves him dares much to make him whole again. DRAGON'S TREASURE is a priceless treasure.
