Steal the Dragon Discussion
« on: August 01, 2007, 12:46:27 pm »
Okay excited. I've been on holidays and found "Steal the Dragon" in this rather super bookstore I stumbled across. Fabulous! Now All I need is some time to recover from my holiday to sit down and read it. :D Still on the lookout for "When Demons Walk" and "Masques".

You should be able to get Steal the Dragon online or at a book store. The other would be harder to get as it's out of print.

I could order them, but it's kind of like a treasure hunt. I'll go into this out of the way bookstore or used book store and explore. Sometimes I get lucky and find a book on my list...other times...the hunt continues.  :)

Much as like the Mercy series I am pleased to see others looking into her other works.  I now own all but one of her books and found them all worth the effort.

Should one read Steal the Dragon before When Demons Walk?  I have the latter, but haven't found the former.

Dragon comes before Demon chronologically, but it's irrelevant, because each of the books in this world involves different characters at considerable distance from each other.  All of them take place in seperately created countries, Ms. Briggs is so good at world building.

There is an over arching chronology and important world events that link the books (think more the election of a president and the course of a war) but, while there may be some spoilers, it shouldn't affect your overall enjoyment of the stories.

Which is to say, go ahead and read When Demons Walk.  It's one of my favorites of her early work.

Excellent!

While at work the other night, I did a search for all books by "Briggs, Patricia" and Steal the Dragon didn't come up.  When I did a title search, it came up, but it seemed to have listed her as 'artist' and not 'author'. 

Just something to be aware of if you are recommending the books to people.

I've read that there are no dragons in this book, does anyone know why the title is "Steal the Dragon"?

Yes, as it happens.  There's a game, somewhere between chess & 'D&D' called 'Steal the Dragon' played by a couple of the main characters.  The phrase has significance to them.  Oh, and to the plot.
Also, 'Masques' is rediculously hard to find, a copy can run over $200.00 on ebay.  Check used book stores & friends' libraries for it, or grit your teeth & wait for the polished up version with sequel Ms. Briggs is working on around the edges of the Mercy & Charles & Anna books she's contracted for.
