Publisher's Summary

“A fast-paced adventure combined with an engrossing mystery, all set in a unique and original fantasy world. I can't wait to find out what happens next!” (Martha Wells, Hugo-award winning author)

In this sequel to For the Killing of Kings, Howard Andrew Jones returns to the Nine Realms of the Dendressi in Upon the Flight of the Queen to continue this imaginative and fun epic fantasy trilogy.

While the savage Naor clans ready to march on the heart of the Five Realms, Rylin Corimel infiltrates the highest of the enemy ranks to learn their secrets and free hundreds of doomed prisoners. His ailing mentor Varama leads the Altenerai corps in a series of strikes to cripple the Naor. Kyrkenall, Elenai, and the kobalin Ortok ride for the storm-wracked shifting lands to rekindle the alliance with the winged lizards known as ko’aye, the only possible counter to the terrible Naor dragons. Meanwhile, the queen is delving further and deeper into the magic of the mysterious hearthstones, in a frantic attempt to save the realms that just might doom them all.

Praised for his ability to write modern epic fantasy that engrosses and entertains, Howard Andrews Jones delivers a sequel that expands the amazing world, relationships, and adventure that he introduced in the first book of this series.

An Action-Packed Thrill Ride!

Mr. Jones picks up right where he left off with his excellent "For the Killing of Kings" and cranks the action up to eleven. This series has been a refreshing take on a genre obsessed with putting out gigantic tomes that could benefit from some significant edits.

The action here is heart-pounding and quick. The downtime is filled with interesting bits of lore and effective humor. I highly recommend this series.

Just as awesome as book 1!

Book 2 of this series was just as wonderful a read as the first. We lost many good characters in this war but that is what war is about, death. I am very excited for book 3 since the Queen will need to be dealt with and will they find the other trapped altin?. A resurrected goddess of pure energy sounds very dangerous for the living so will the queen succeed? My only regret is I didnt wait for all 3 books to be out first before beginning the read. I like to read them straight thru so that the story is crisp in my mind but hey this was too good to wait.

Fresh imaginative fantasy world, timeless themes

Couldn't put it down. Well written and well narrated. The world building was excellent. The author imagined a unique fantasy world with compelling characters and an intriguing approach to how magic works in their world. The islands of stable reality separated by seas of shifting unstable unreality makes for a world that lets the imagination roam. I wish this becomes a movie some day.
