Niall's father taught him about honour, about the value of a man keeping his word. And this is a tenet by which Niall has lived his life, even while training to be a Blade.
Now, however, King Ambrose is dead, and his daughter, Malinda, wears the Chivian Crown, and even as Niall is made Prime of the Blades, he's been put under dire oath to the Queen, made a spy, and about to face a challenge to everything he had been taught about honour and the privilege of being a Queen's Blade.
In this the last of the King's Blades series, Dave Duncan takes his readers on a high adventure and what will be remembered as a deeply satisfying conclusion.
When Lucius discovers he is the fabled hero tasked with stopping a dragon uprising, he sets out from his elvish home seeking to reforge an ancient sword that once killed the dragon lord, Kraegyn. But Lucius knows little about the wide world of Azuleah where he encounters dwarves, faeries, and the villainous Draknoir. With dark forces at every turn, Lucius must depend on the aid of new friends and allies from distant lands to help him reforge the Requiem Sword before the dragons usher an age of fire and darkness to Azuleah.
The Azuleah Trilogy is an epic fantasy series filled with action, adventure, and intrigue. Fans of C.S. Lewis' Chronicles of Narnia and John Flanagan's Ranger's Apprentice will feel right at home!
