For decades the lands of the Ironship Syndicate have been defended by the 'blood blessed' - men and women able to channel the powers contained in the potent blood of wild drakes. Elite spies and assassins, their loyalty has established the Syndicate's position as the greatest power in the known world.

Yet now a crisis looms. The drake bloodlines are weakening, and war with the Corvantine Empire seems inevitable. The Syndicate's only hope of survival lies with the myth of a legendary drake, whose powerful blood might just turn the tide of the war - if it even exists.

The task of hunting down this fabled creature falls to Claydon Torcreek, a petty thief and unregistered blood blessed. He's handled many valuable things in his time (most of them illegal) but nothing as priceless as his nation's future.

    Comments about The Waking Fire:

    This book is enthralling from the first few pages. Even better than the author's first trilogy this novel engages the reader with 3 story threads told from very different perspectives. It finishes with all protagonists in precarious situations and leaves the reader gasping for more. I loved this book - an unusual take on the fantasy novel and full of high adventure and wonderfully compelling heroes.
