The long awaited second book of the critically acclaimed, best-selling Reemergence is here.
With an important diplomatic visit to the troll nation just days away, Tesser receives a phone call with dire news from Sin City. A bus is found in the desert; filled with the husks of dead bodies killed by something far from human.
Unable to break away from the crucial meeting with the ancient troll kingdom, he dispatches his brother Ambryn; the dragon of death in his stead.
Ancient mistakes are finally ripening like rotten fruit, and the black dragon must rush to the December desert of Nevada to harvest his own missteps before they transform an entire city into a necropolis before the world's eyes. And this time Ambryn doesn't have the help of his sister Kaula, so his task may be nearly impossible. At least now he has Mr. Doyle, Spoon, and a dark man with darker deeds in his past from old Europe on his side.
Not all change is good. Welcome to the Reemergence.

Wonder if there is going to be more in this series. Hope so there are 7 dragons he can write about. This book had all the adventure, action, magic like the first book had. Ambryn is on the war path w/ vampires. They take the battle to Vegas where the vampires have set up shop. Ambryn teams up w/ Mr. Doyle, Spoon, and a werewolf. there is a twist at the end that I didn't see. Good book I want more.
when I read some of the reviews I was nervous but it was a very good story. Chris is able to build character depth in a short time and that makes everyone seem like better characters.
worth the time to read or listen to.
i really liked Ambryn more than Tesser. He is not as arrogant and is actually more caring. I hope the next book will include more of his character.
Definately a good series of books, and I look forward to I'm assuming a Zaod book next if there are any. Vampires vs dragons who would have thought the story could work so well. Great book a little slow in some spots but the characters have been great so far. I wonder if Ambryn listens to emo or heavy metal more?
This is book 2 in the Reemergence series. (I believe there are just two books so far but hopefully each dragon will get their own book.) There are actually seven dragons in the world and this second story is mainly about a dragon named Ambryn.
These dragons are quite different than you expect (due to the author's incredible imagination) and yet they are also everything wonderful you expect of a dragon too. I don't like to give away the story in a review but I'll give you a teaser- Have you ever thought of a dragon in Las Vegas?!
I enjoyed this book very much but not as much as the first book Tesser. This story was a bit "darker" but still fun.
Believability in the storyline. I care about the characters and the narration is great. I can wait to spend more time in this alternant version of our world.
I am an infomaniac...seeking insight, clarity & understanding...
what can I say but as I grew near to finishing book two I'm bugging Chris about book three! sure here has a new baby girl but...
I can see that this universe has lots of opportunity and eagerly await the next... arrrrrrrrggggg!
since Anne McCaffrey's! I hope this trilogy will be expanded to a full series! Lots of action, surprises and, yes, ethics!!! The shapeshifting dragons are amazing and it would make Awesome movies! great job by author and reader
Chris Philbrook did it again, this is a great sequel to Tesser, the story is brilliantly character driven with the perfect balance of action. James Foster was made to perform Chris Philbrook's books, his performance is flawless. I cannot wait for the next creation!!!
I really enjoyed this second audiobook in the Reemergence series. This time the story focuses on Ambryn, the dragon of death. As one would expect from death, he is not as friendly and outgoing as Tesser (the dragon of life, who was the main protagonist in book one) but in the end you can not help but love this plague spitting dragon who loves his niece and is determined to correct his and Kaula's biggest mistake, the cheaters of death. He is very focussed in his hunt to destroy the vampires, but it turns out to be not as straight forward as he expected. I loved his grumblings about Tesser, his internal debates as to how he should act, who he liked and trusted, and as to why he shouldn't just kill everyone off and start again. The narrators deep, strong voice suited Ambryn well, it seemed to rumble as he spoke and gave the feeling of age and power. I liked the new characters that were introduced, they weren't perfect, they had flaws, had made mistakes and were trying to correct them. Agent Spooner and Mr Doyle are great characters, you became attached to them in the first book and you like them even more in this second one. This is an exciting, fast paced, action packed story with great characters, intrigue, surprises and some heart break too. It can be read as a stand-alone but you will get more from it if you read/listen to the first book as well. I hope the author continues this series, as he is building an interesting world that I would love to hear more about.
