The second in the Chronicles trilogy, this is a good follow-up to Dawnthief, with the introductions of dragons adding to Barclay's already booming armoury of raring-to-go action. ( )
  Tselja | May 2, 2010 |
Too many dragons is very, very bad.

After defeating the nasty bad guys in the first book, the Raven have another large problem. They have opened a rift which will allow a whole bunch of interdimensional dragons through to do a lot more than trash the joint and eat a few cows.

To help stop this they must develop a relationship with a powerful dragon clan and come to some sort of arrangement. This leads Hirad Coldheart into a personal relationship with the dragon leader. These dragons are actually pretty interesting characters, with their own politics and society. Not to see there isn't a bunch of mercenary band swordplay, etc., as per the first book.

The enthralling sequel to DAWNTHIEF takes the adventure into a new dimension. The Raven must fight to help the dragons of the Brood Kan defend the dimensional rip opened in the skies of Balaia by the casting of Dawnthief. And then they must somehow close the rip. And all the time the Wesmen are rampaging through Balaia, laying waste to its cities and besieging the mages of Julatsa in Dordova.
