But there are creatures more terrifying than dragons. Maybe because it was the most grim and miserable thing Hambly could think of. I honestly wish I had never read this book. Demonspawn from a dark dimension have learned to drink the magic-and the souls-of mages and dragons alike, turning their victims into empty vessels.

Jenny will question everything she trusts and believes in. And John will embark on a perilous quest for the only things capable of defeating such powerful demons--even more powerful demons . . .

I have no objections to sequels if done well, and Ms. Hambly can do them well, as evidenced by her Darwath Trilogy and "Those Who Hunt the Night"/"Traveling With the Dead". However, this "semi-sequel" to her brilliant "Dragonsbane" should have been left on the shelf. Terrible things happen to her protagonists, the witch Jenny Waynest and the reluctant hero-scientist John Aversin, and to their 12 year old son, Ian, in a dreary, hopeless world. Neither fortitude, intelligence, or honor wins the day; only a screamingly-obvious plot device, the flawed gem which holds Jenny's soul (and who doesn't see that coming from the first instant) allows a partial measure of physical, but not emotional, victory to occur. The book is such a downer after the brilliant "Dragonsbane" that the author was compelled to state -- right in the book -- that a sequel to this one would be forthcoming. However, unlike this one, which I rushed to buy in hardcover, I'll wait for the next one to get to paperback. Not recommended, but her other books -- particularly the ones I mentioned above and "The Ladies of Mandrigyn" -- are.

This fantasy is a sequel to "Dragonsbane", and Morkeleb the
Black is in of danger of turning into a smarmy, cocker spaniel type
dragon (a la Anne McCaffrey) in "Dragonshadow", but Hambly
writes him out of that undignified fate.
Unpleasant but wondrous
adventures are the daily lot of Lord John Aversin, Dragonsbane, and
Jenny the Wizard as they attempt to rescue their son Ian from
Folcalor, the king of the Demons. Jenny has the added handicap of
being possessed by a demon herself, while her true self is trapped in
a wizard's gem. This book could be subtitled, "When Bad Things
Happen to Good People"...
Luckily, there is a sequel,
"Knight of the Demon Queen". I hope it has a happier ending
than "Dragonshadow", but with Hambly you never know. She is
one of the true originals in this hackneyed genre. Her dragons,
demons, gnomes, heroes, and heroines will leave you spell-bound and
wanting more, no matter how it ends.

"To save a dragon is to slave a dragon." This tale of love, family, loyalty and great magic is truly a soul--wrenching journey. Depths of emotion weave these memorable characters into a tapestry of such exquisite beauty it is a must-read for anyone who loves magic and dragons.

I didn’t enjoy this book as much as I did the first. This one felt bulky and slow. But the characters are like able, and I’ll likely continue to see what happens next.

This is the sequel to Dragonsbane.. I have all three books in this series and I completely loved the first one, though it one of the best books I've ever read and I fell in love with the characters..
I read the backs of the two other books and put off reading them for the longest time, I was so afraid that terrible things would happen in them to the characters I had grown to love. Well I finally did read them and well I was right..
I have this dilemma which is a mental thing but I have a hard time seperating fiction from fact to some extent. This book was absolutely torturous. Well-written definately, but I had to drag myself through it without stopping to cry and scream and all that. Of course the instant I finished it, I HAD to start the next one which did a little better for me but not much.
Overall though this book is incredibly depressing and heart-breaking but it is very well-written and I would easily give it five stars did it not depress me so much.
The other thing I found wrong with it is minor and my opinion, was the state of the dragons. Dragons I look on to be massively wise and powerful beings (and they are in the book) but I believe them to be more a force of Light and definately not so dang susceptible to being possessed. That's me though. That almost made it seem less real to me.
If you can keep your suspension of disbelief reined in a bit for this book I highly recommend it.. but read Dragonsbane first, no demons in that one AND it has a happy ending. If you can't take bad things then ONLY read Dragonsbane, like I should've, silly me..

I enjoy the battle between good and evil, and Hambly goes to great lengths in book two to highlight the depth of the evil. While I found some scenes more explicit than I expected, I think she does a great job setting up the evil powers. This is a much more powerful enemy than faced in book one.

You really want to read the Winterlands Series in order. If you haven't already read it, go back and read the initial book, "Dragonsbane." You're going to love the characters in this gripping fantasy.
A good sequel to "Dragonsbane" but not quite as outstanding as the first book
