Thymara, an unschooled forest girl, and Alise, wife of an unloving and wealthy Trader, are among the disparate group entrusted with escorting the dragons to their new home. And on an extraordinary odyssey with no promise of return, many lessons will be learned—as dragons and tenders alike experience hardships, betrayals . . . and joys beyond their wildest imaginings.
The Cured Temple now rules over the ashes of that fallen nation. Yet some still remember Requiem. Some still carry the magic inside them. For the first time in a hundred years, dragons take flight. For the first time, they cry out the forbidden name of their kingdom: "Requiem! Requiem!"
The paladins of the Cured Temple gather their armies. They take flight on the backs of firedrakes, mindless reptiles of the sky. They seek to slay the last dragons of Requiem . . . and to erase all memory of that ancient realm. The skies burn with war, with rage, and with dragonfire. The kingdom of Requiem is reborn.

The book, sir. The Llyfr Draconius.
You'll find what you need in there, if you know how to look.
The war across the Twin Kingdoms rages on.
Queen Beulah has killed one sister and ordered the assassination of another. The Inquisitor Melyn journeys though the north-lands of Llanwennog in a merciless bid to overthrow King Ballah. Now in possession of Brynceri's ring, his power seems indestructible. Nothing can stop the invasion.
Captured by the travelling circus, Sir Benfro cannot shake their control, more powerful than Magog's malign influence. Errol Ramsbottom, left for dead, follows the trail of his friend's captors - only Benfro holds the key to Errol's beloved Martha's whereabouts. But both sides are set on a path of destruction - dragon against dragon, king against queen, man against man.
As the ancient spell that split Gwlad begins to unravel, it may be easier for Benfro and Errol to travel to Gog's world now. But what will happen when the barriers between the two worlds fail entirely? As unlikely alliances form and strategies shift, who will emerge victorious?
