Book Description

July 5 2011 Annals of Drakis Series (Book 2)
The Rhonas Empire of elves is built upon a thirst for conquest, disdain for other races, and an appetite for hedonistic self-gratification. They have complete control of the Aether — the mystical substance that fuels their magic. One use of this Aether is to compel total obedience of the slaves drawn from the races they have defeated. But there are legends that tell of a time when humans and other slave races were free and dragons flew the skies. And they speak of a hero who will return to lead an uprising against their masters: a human named Drakis. When Aer magic, the magic of nature itself, is wielded by Jugar, a captive dwarf, it signals the start of a rebellion straight from legend. In the ensuing chaos, the former warrior-slave Drakis Sha-Timuran, with a small group of slaves, flees for his life and freedom — lured by a melody that conjures visions of dark wings, scales, and fire. Following the melody he alone can hear, Drakis stumbles on the truth behind the legends: the dragons are real! Can they survive the dangers of this treacherous realm and bring the truth behind the legends to the army of rebellion?

5.0 out of 5 stars If you liked Song of the Dragon, then you WILL like this book Oct. 4 2012
By Kurt A. Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
In this sequel to Song of the Dragon, Drakis has now reached the far north, perhaps out of reach of the elven Rhonas Empire. But, instead of finding answers, he seems to be finding more questions. And worse, this is no safe haven for Drakis and his followers. Now, they need to find their way back south to something like "home."

But also, this is the story of Soen Tjen-Rei, the now elven ex-Inquisitor, is still looking for Drakis, in the hopes that he can redeem his position in the Iblisi. But, following the pilgrims who seek Drakis that he might lead them to freedom from the Rhonas Empire, he begins to lose his focus. What should he do, and what path should he follow? Things seem much less clear than before.

First off, I must say that I loved Song of the Dragon, and was very happy to get the second book in the series. I disagree that this book stands entirely on its own. If you don't read the first book, you will lack a key understanding of just what Drakis is up to, and the ending will feel very muddy and unsatisfying. So, am I telling you to not read the book? Heavens no, I am telling you to read BOTH books! So far this is a great series, and I cannot wait for the next book in the series.

I like its interesting races, with the humans and dwarves being just what you would expect, but the elves being excitingly different. And, I really like the lion-man manticores and the four-armed chimerians. The story itself has lots of great action, with interesting monsters (especially the drakoneti and dragons) and great fight scenes.

If you liked Song of the Dragon, then you WILL like this book. I highly recommend this wonderful series to all fans of great fantasy literature!
5.0 out of 5 stars enthralling epic fantasy July 9 2011
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
The Rhonas Elven Empire kept expanding using Aether magic to win battles and conquer countries and destroy the humans. They made slaves of mortals, manticores, goblins and other species using torture and other indignities while using magic to keep control of the slaves who love in a dream world. When the Aether Well in the Western Provinces fell at the House of Timuran the slave Drakis and others were free to remember. The people want to believe Drakis is the man from the prophecy who will gather an army and crush the disdainful Elven oppressors.

To prove his companions wrong, he takes them to a place where the dragons are to come, but Drakis knows that is a myth. He is shocked when a thousand dragons arrive and the group is forced to go through a portal. Drakis's companion Ethis shuts the portal and they figure out that they are hundreds of miles from where they were months ago. The journey back is filled with action, betrayal and warfare with the dragons playing a significant role. The Rhonas Emperor wants Drakis returned to him as he is the rallying point for 60,000 people who want freedom from the Elven odious yoke.

The latest The Annals of Drakis avoids second book syndrome as the story line stands on its own yet expands on the action and social cultures established in the first entry (see Song of the Dragon). Readers will be enthralled by the story line as the Rhonas Empire is similar to the Roman Empire with client states though there are differences especially involving how slaves are treated and other once free sentient species. Drakis may be the man of the prophecy but even if he is not he is bodacious as a leader seeking freedom for all. Citadels of the Lost is what epic fantasy is all about.

4.0 out of 5 stars Following through the Folds... Feb. 7 2014
By The Mad Hatter - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Escaping recapture, journeying across very different lands, and meeting new races and characters. This was a great follow up to book 1 pushing Drakis and company further from the Elves and their Iblisi agents. The chaos and political mistrust that bleeds through the elves pushes them north while the army of the Prophet continues to grow with pains. But their leader turns out to be a pleasant welcome even if an odd fit.

I rather enjoyed the actions of where things started and ended. Now the only downside was that it became predictable as to what would happen between the main characters with Drakis by books' end. So knowing it was coming made it a little tough to believe the characters would choose what they did and the reader believing in the reason.

The end story for Drakis and group for this one fell short but the journey into the land of the Dragons was a good one and the end of that journey left you wanting so much for the next book as things appear to be on the verge of a very exciting end to the trilogy. The potential had been set...
