Publisher's Summary

War and madness cast shadows over the lands dragons once ruled.   

Geder Palliako's star is rising. He is a hero of Antea, protector to the crown prince, and darling of the court. But storms from his past are gathering, and with them, a war that will change everything.  

Cithrin bel Sarcour founded a powerful bank on stolen wealth, forged papers, and ready blades. Now every move she makes is observed, recorded, and controlled. Unless Cithrin can free herself from her gilded cage, the life she made will be for naught; war may provide just the opportunity she needs.  

An apostate priest sees the hidden hand behind all: a long-buried secret of the dragon empire threatens everything humanity has built. An age of madness and death approaches, with only a few doomed heroes to stand in its way.

  1. The Dragon's Path

Phenomenal Sequel to an Incredible Fantasy Novel!

I purchased the audio books of this trilogy to enjoy revisiting the series without having to read the paperbacks I own. These novels are fantastic, every page jumping to life with excellent mystery, characters, action, and plot twists at every turn of the next page. I cannot recommend this enough. The narrator perfectly captures the author's intent with feeling and professionalism.
