We'll publish them on our site once we've reviewed them. Continue shopping. An only child of divorced parents, I discovered very young that siblings and best friends were available at all times between the pages of favorite novels. It was not at all unusual for three generations—grandfather, mother, and daughter—to gather in the living room and while away the hours engrossed in our books of the moment. This environment also helped foster Roberson's enjoyment of writing. By age fourteen, she had already completed her first novel and received her first rejection slip.
Even though she was hurt by the rejection, she did not allow it to quell her desire to be published. During the next fourteen years, she wrote three more unpublished novels before settling into the fantasy genre.
Her first fantasy series, "Chronicles of Cheysuli," was begun while in college; it was during her final semester that she received notice of the sale of her first book, Shapechangers. Shapechangers was followed by seven other novels in the series. The Cheysuli are a race of people in which each member has the power to communicate with a given animal through telepathy and the power to assume that animal's form.
The series chronicles the struggles between the oppressed Cheysuli—banished by a jealous ruler after his wife left him for his bodyguard, a Cheysuli—and a race called the Ihlini. The story continues over several generations, with many love affairs and rivalries as well as much use of sorcery and supernatural power. James Guide to Fantasy Writers. Roberson is noted for creating strong female characters, both in the "Cheysuli" series and the "Sword-Dancer" books. Roberson has said she wanted to feature characters who would help break the traditional, sexist female role that had often been assigned by other fantasy authors.
The novelist explained: "I wanted to write about a man who, in meeting up with a strong, competent woman in the same line of work, has his consciousness raised during a dangerous journey that taxes them physically as well as emotionally. When they meet, Del is wanted for killing the man who trained her in the art of sword-fighting. She also is searching for her brother, who was taken prisoner by a band of criminals who murdered their parents and raped Del. Over the course of the series, Tiger joins Del in the quest for her brother and on her journey to face her accusers.
Along the way, they meet demonic dogs, powerful wizards, false messiahs, and various other strange beings who inhabit their desolate world.
