Publisher's Summary

The Rise of the Dragon and the Fall of Kings

Lord Regent Geder Palliako's war has led his nation and the priests of the spider goddess to victory after victory. No power has withstood him, except for the heart of the one woman he desires. As the violence builds and the cracks in his rule begin to show, he will risk everything to gain her love or else her destruction. 

Clara Kalliam, the loyal traitor, is torn between the woman she once was and the woman she has become. With her sons on all sides of the conflict, her house cannot stand, but there is a power in choosing when and how to fall. 

And in Porte Oliva, banker Cithrin bel Sarcour and Captain Marcus Wester learn the terrible truth that links this war to the fall of the dragons millennia before, and that to save the world, Cithrin must conquer it.

Brilliant

For those missing the space the Expanse used to fill this series will definitely help.
No its not scifi and its not as sprawling or intricate but its got the bones of characters that
will remind of Amos and Holden. The main female character is unique a genius for finance
and the psychology of treachery in the body of a sylph. The tyrant a bumbling Peter Sellers
caricature that you can't help but feel sympathy for even as he murders without any sense of
complication or self hate.
The one complaint I have is not for these entertaining and engaging works its for Audible.
For whatever reason the last book of the series isn't available here. Well it is available elsewhere.
I guess they don't want people to get it here. Again money and its games. Guess its fitting.

Fantasy political thriller?

The way Daniel Abraham translates the principals of banking and government in his fantasy world is brilliant. Coupled with likeable characters and solid action, this is a fantasy series I'd recommend to anyone.
