New Release in Books
In the Service of Dragons is the continuation of Robert Stanek's
multilayered epic fantasy adventure for young adults begun with The
Kingdoms and the Elves of the Reaches and continued through The Kingdoms
and the Elves of the Reaches 2, 3, and 4. In his acclaimed The Kingdoms
and the Elves of the Reaches books, he introduced us to the story of
Ruin Mist, an extraordinary world of magic, adventure and intrigue. Now
in the eagerly awaited follow-up, he once again proves himself a
wonderful storyteller with a gift for fast pacing and believable
storylines. Already hailed as a classic, Robert Stanek's powerful series
has been enjoyed by readers all over the world.
The Elves of the
Reaches returned from exile, bringing grave news. War came to the
Kingdoms. Many perished in the turmoil and unrest. An attempt was made
to kidnap a princess and assassinate a king. Now, from the ancient past
a dark power returns. "The Fourth Wind blows across the mountain tops,"
they say. And the Twelve Clans emerge from myth and memory.
As prophecy becomes reality, the factions struggle for control, only to
further divide the lands. Some would say that King Andrew Alder
foolishly agreed to support the Elves of the Reaches, sending men to aid
their cause when the causes of all Men in all lands were being put to
the test of steel. And in the North, men back their words with action.
Against a backdrop of treachery and intrigue, murder and mayhem, the
price of freedom is high. Many will pay with their lives. Many will
succumb to imprisonment and enslavement. For when alliances shatter, old
hatreds rise anew and the plotting and scheming begin.
Bold, inventive, brilliantly imagined, In the Service of Dragons is a
novel of magic and wonder—a tale of pure excitement you will not soon
