Description
Having survived Jehal's betrayal, former Queen Zafir is determined to take back control of the kingdom. To that end, she seizes Jehal's wife and son as hostages. Desperate to save his queen and his heir, Jehal makes a tentative peace with the dragons of the north, and prepares to fly against his enemies.

But as politics throw the realms of men into turmoil, a far greater danger threatens. The dragons are awakening from the spells cast upon them, and returning to their native fury. They are out for revenge. And that revenge will be brutal.

        January 15, 2012
        Third entry in the series (The King of the Crags, 2011, etc.), all of which previously appeared in the U.K., about telepathic dragons who after death are reborn with their memories intact. These are not cute, lovable, compliant, Anne McCaffrey-like dragons, or wise, ancient, unfathomable, Le Guin-style dragons, but arrogant, cruel, savage, man-eating dragons, seething with rage and the urge to destroy. Other than that, almost everything going on here is mystifying if you haven't read the previous books, and perhaps even if you have. Human factions, led variously by Valmeyan, Zafir, Jehal and Hyrkallan, each as devious and merciless as the next, have conspired, plotted, betrayed and ambushed in order to seize the title of Speaker--whatever that entails. Intermittent hostilities have degenerated into all-out warfare, as warriors mounted on war-dragons contend for mastery of the skies, their dragons tamed and controlled by means of potions brewed by the alchemists. But now the potions have run out and a new generation of feral dragons has arisen, fully cognizant of their long slavery and thirsting for vengeance. So, much as they hate and despise each other, the factions must unite against this existential threat. Other elements in this ferociously explosive mix include Kithyr, a blood-mage hired to steal the dragon-slaying Adamantine Spear by the Picker, an Elemental Man and agent of the mysterious Taiytakei, a people from across the ocean; and the adventures of Kemir, a wandering mercenary who's somehow become attached to Snow, one of the awakened dragons. Both humans and dragons have personalities and obscure agendas. What they do is wildly unpredictable and always subordinate to sheer spectacle. Startling, unremitting violence at a blistering pace, where who survives, wins.

        Zafir, former queen of the Adamantine Palace, seeks to recover her throne from the usurper Jehal by seizing his family as hostages. Jehal forms an alliance with the dragons of the north, tamed by the potions of the alchemists to serve as mounts and weapons. As the contest for control of the human cities reaches its peak, news comes of rogue dragons, free of human influence and desirous of ending their species' subjugation. The vivid conclusion of Deas's epic fantasy (The Adamantine Palace; The King of the Crags) brings the essential conflicts of the series to a fever pitch, as the fully realized characters, humans and dragons alike, make a final stand. VERDICT Deas's dragons are spectacularly alien, dangerous, seductive, and beautiful, with their own nonhuman morality. Fans of dragon fiction should appreciate his intriguing interpretation, which places this trilogy in a category with Anne McCaffrey's "Dragonriders of Pern," Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman's "Dragonlance," and Naomi Novik's "Temeraire" series.
