Jennifer Roberson has moved forward in her writing a great deal since she began her career. Basically I bought the Cheysuli books (her first) because I enjoyed the Tiger and Del books so much. (That was a mistake). I read all the "Sword" books of Tiger and Del. I can't remember much about their plots, which is sad, because I read them only a couple of years ago. It may be my memory which at the time was a bit faulty from a car accident, or it may be that the actual plots had little to set them apart from most sword-and-sorcery type stories (which I like very much). It was probably a bit of both. What I do remember, and what probably would have encouraged me to read all the Tiger and Del books again, was the sarcastic yet caring interplay between Tiger and Del. It's hard to build characters as believable as this. I hope Roberson continues to write as well as this and better in her later books. I think she has conspicuous talent.
