Elegy for a Lost Star sets the stage for a major turning point in the Symphony of Ages series.
The dragon Anwyn - who has lain for three years in deathlike sleep in a grave of rock and black coal - is freed by the cataclysm that concluded Requiem for the Sun. Disoriented and confused, she remembers only two things: the person who trapped her in dragon form and locked her in the grave - Rhapsody - and an all-encompassing desire to wreak vengeance. Meanwhile Achmed, the Firbolg king, resumes rebuilding his shattered home while a guild of merciless assassins set about taking revenge on him for the killing of their leader. A horribly deformed but magical being finds its way through a carnival of freaks to the palace of an evil despot, who sees in it the potential to be the instrument by which his plans of conquest and brutal domination of a continent will be realized.
With the rise of new leaders, good and evil, the long-awaited birth of the Child of Time, the dark plans of assassins and rulers, a confrontation that shakes the relationship of the Three, and a battle to the death between two dragons of unimaginable elemental power, the seeds of chaos are planted for a war that will, by its end, consume half of the world.

My mom introduced me to the world of audiobooks with the Hobbit when I was a child and I've been hooked ever since!
The continuing story of the characters I love! It picks up right where it left off and you find out more back story and continuing story of all the amazing characters.
Meridian is finally born! and Achmed finally fesses up about his love for Rhapsody! I also like the story about Constantine and the stone statue.
I love how well Kevin T. Collins sings all the different songs in the book. Makes me wish he also had a soundtrack album!
I always love her books and there was plenty of action that left you hanging that I had to hurry up and finish!
My only complaint is one of the main villains and plot devices was really weak *dragon* and it could have been removed from the story and I don't think anything would really change. Other than that fantastic as always!
Tell us about yourself!
Good character development. Great narrative. Love the comedic parts. Great story. A bit too windy sometimes.
