enthralling epic fantasy July 9 2011
By Harriet Klausner - Published on
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.

The empire-shattering adventures of Drakis continue Feb. 1 2012
By Holly Scudero - Published on
Format: Hardcover
The escaped slave Drakis and his companions have followed the sound of dragonsong to the northern lands, only to discover that dragons are real! They're also dangerous, and their flight from this new foe send the group to an unknown land. Drakis must bring the magic of Aether back to the lands they now find themselves in. Doing so, however, will mean working together, difficult due to the secrets and mistrust swirling around them all, and trusting in an arrogant young guide who surely has other motives. Meanwhile, former Iblisi Inquisitor Soen knows his fate is tied to the escaped slaves, and he must find them before his own enemies in the Rhonas Empire find him.

"Citadels of the Lost" is the exciting second book in the Annals of Drakis series, and like its predecessor, it does not disappoint. All of the characters readers know and may or may not love from the first book are back, and the story only gets more intricate as it goes on. Hickman writes with authority, masterfully and flawlessly switching between different points of view and keeping this novel flowing towards an epic conclusion that only promises more to come in the next book. A must-read for fans of the fantasy genre.

Following through the Folds... Feb. 7 2014
By The Mad Hatter - Published on
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...
Not the Traditional... April 10 2015

I am a huge fan of Weis and Hickman and began reading this series while waiting for the 4th book on the Dragonships of Vindras series. The Annals of Drakis series is not your usual fantasy series in that the races that are encountered differ from the traditional version of some of the fantasy races. Once you get past that, the series is decent. Not the best work by Tracy Hickman but worth the read.
