I liked the books in fact I stayed up all night to finish the second one. Rhapsody was a little two perfect at times, but that is what made her "her". Being a romance fan I didn't mind the sex scenes and they were not overly graphic. I would love a continuing story about Grunther and Alcmed. It's not a masterpiece but is worth reading.

Rhapsody is, in a nutshell, not your typical, standard book. Sure it has the usual heroic battles and has the normal love story. The hero, however, is female. Now you are probably, shaking your head saying, "That's not special." but I feel that having a female lead is a thing that brings something special to Elizabeth Haydons book. I see a lot of opinions in Rhapsody that wouldn't ordinarily be present in a novel with a guy lead.

I have been reading fantasy for close to twenty-five years now and I am often asked why this genre of book. Is it the epic struggle between good and evil? (The F'dor vs. humanity) Is it the transformation of an unwilling hero into a mighty champion or even sovereign? (Rhapsody to a demigod) Maybe it's the new faces in newly formed worlds and all of the politics and beauty that are parts of them. Maybe it's a combination of all of that, and on the bright side, this book has all of that, and some very interesting twists on some pat ideas i.e. lost races, lost islands, dragons, magic etc.
