it was ok
Read in April, 2006

** spoiler alert ** Positives: the tree, the final quarter (ish) of the book and especially the conclusion.

Negatives: the massive amount of new (and mostly irrelevant-in-the-end vocabulary), the majority of the first half.

Verdict: Read it, because you know you need to know how they got there, and how Korval came to be. But then you can shelve it and go back to better stories like I Dare and Scout's Progress.

An e-mail I got the day I was reading it said "I picked up and read the first 20 pages of Crystal Dragon. Is it a SF novel or BDSM porn?..."

Sadly, my reply was "Yeah, it reads like the Lackey/Anthony book in some ways - they bother to go all the way to "bonding the submissive (male) through sex" to the female ::sigh:: It really isn't very good. Though the parts with Jela and Cantra aren't a total waste of time.

... I'm going to finish it before I give up and consign it to the shelf behind Tomorrow Log. (I'm on page 250)"
