From "New York Times" bestselling authors Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman comes "Rage of the Dragon," the action-packed third book in their Dragonships fantasy series.
Skylan Ivorson is the gods-chosen Chief of all Vindras clans. But the gods from whom the Vindrasi draw their earthdwelling power are besieged by a new generation of gods who are challenging them for the powers of creation. The only way to stop these brash interlopers lies within the Five Bones of the Vektia Dragon--the primal dragon forged during the creation of the world--which have been lost for generations.
With the Gods of the New Dawn amassing a vast army, Skylan finds allies in former enemies. Calling upon the ogres to fight their common foes, the Vindrasi soon find themselves in the middle of an even larger war. Skylan and his Vindrasi clan must sail the Sea of Tears into the heart of the Forbidden Empire of the Cyclops, to implement a cunning yet delicate plan that risks his life and leadership at every corner. But a new enemy lies deep in the sea, one who draws upon powers never harnessed by land dwellers.
Master world-builders Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman, who have entertained generations of fans with the Dragonlance series and the Death Gate Cycle, prove they're at the top of their game.
Tracy Hickman has been writing and exploring fantasy and science fiction since the 1970s. Tracy eventually became a New York Times bestselling author (with Margaret Weis) of numerous series such as Dragonlance, the Death Gate Cycle, Darksword, and Rose of the Prophet and other series. Together with his wife Laura, Tracy has created Dragonlance and Ravenloft games and, more recently, their own fantasy series, The Bronze Canticles. Song of the Dragon and Citadels of the Lost are the first two novels in The Annals of Drakis. Tracy and Laura live in the Salt Lake Valley of Utah and have four grown children.
Praise for Bones of the Dragon:
“Weis and Hickman again demonstrate their talent for world-building and for creating likable yet flawed heroes. This Norse-flavored series opener should have a large following.” —Library Journal
“Weis and Hickman have created a believably human story out of their mix of saga and sorcery.”
