To reach greatness you must step on bodies, and many brothers lie trodden in my wake. I’ve walked from pawn to player and I’ll win this game of ours, though the cost of it may drown the world in blood…

The land burns with the fires of a hundred battles as lords and petty kings fight for the Broken Empire. The long road to avenge the slaughter of his mother and brother has shown Prince Honorous Jorg Ancrath the hidden hands behind this endless war. He saw the game and vowed to sweep the board. First though he must gather his own pieces, learn the rules of play, and discover how to break them.

A six nation army, twenty thousand strong, marches toward Jorg’s gates, led by a champion beloved of the people. Every decent man prays this shining hero will unite the empire and heal its wounds. Every omen says he will. Every good king knows to bend the knee in the face of overwhelming odds, if only to save their people and their lands. But King Jorg is not a good king.

Faced by an enemy many times his strength Jorg knows that he cannot win a fair fight. But playing fair was never part of Jorg’s game plan.

Dragons once again inhabit the world of the Rain Wilds. But unlike their ancestors, these creatures are half-formed, flightless, and unable to feed or care for themselves. Their only hope for survival is to return to Kelsingera, their ancient, mythical homeland. Helpless to make the dangerous trek along the toxic and inhospitable Rain Wild River alone, the dragons are accompanied by a rag-tag group of human keepers. Overcoming tragedy, hardship, fear, and mistrust, the dragons and humans form deep, abiding bonds that unite them in unexpected ways.

But those bonds will be severely tested during the journey’s final days. The lost city can only be reached by flight—a test of endurance and skill beyond the strength of these stunted creatures. Desperate and losing hope, they must search the depths of their ancestral memories for the knowledge that might save them. But time is running out, not only for the dragons, but for their human keepers as well.

City of Dragons – Prologue
