In the age of airships, automatons and secicao, it’s been two years since the nefarious Empress Finesia commanded the rise of the immortal black dragons in East Cadigan Island.
Now, back in the Southlands, Pontopa Wells is taking strong medications to keep Finesia from taking control of her mind. Meanwhile, up north, the power-hungry King Cini has created a factory that can deal out war automatons at astounding rates.
Can Pontopa lead men and dragons into battle against them, when her medications numb her telepathic connection to the dragons?
Especially when Alsie Fioreletta, the right hand of Empress Finesia, seems to have other plans.
When Chris Behrsin isn’t out exploring the world, he’s behind a keyboard writing tales of dragons and magical lands. He was born into the genre through a steady diet of Terry Pratchett. His fiction fuses a love for fantasy and whimsical plots with philosophy and voyages into the worlds of dreams.
