Dragon’s Treasure by Elizabeth A. Lynn

Dragon’s Treasure is the sequel to Elizabeth A. Lynn’s Dragon’s Winter, but it’s readable on its own. I read Dragon’s Winter when it came out several years ago, and so I was a little hazy on the backstory in Dragon’s Treasure, but it went fine. I was happy to revisit the characters, and Lynn has left the door open for an additional volume, which I hope appears in due course.

Although the gay love angle is downplayed in Dragon’s Treasure, I’m amazed as always at the women authors who do gay relationships so well: Marion Zimmer Bradley, Mary Renault, Patricia Nell Warren. Lynn adds a bit of sado-masochism in some of her books (notably Sardonyx Net, one of her science fiction novels).
