Also by Stephen Deas from Gollancz: The Adamantine Palace The King of the Crags The Thief-Taker’s Apprentice CONTENTS The Blood-Mage 1 Kithyr The Eyrie-Master 2 A Ba. Also by Stephen Deas from Gollancz: The Adamantine Palace. The King of the Crags. The Thief-Taker’s Apprentice.

Stephen Deas was born in 1968. He once set fire to Wales. Well one bit of Wales. This volume is the bleak finale of a trilogy "red in tooth and claw". While each of the books can stand on its own, reading all three adds depth and resonance. The action is propelled by the needs and wants of the characters both human and dragon. And actions have consequences.

Perfect for all fans of Anne McCaffrey's Dragonriders of Pern seriesAs the various factions fight for control of the Adamantine Palace, mankind's nemesis approaches. The realm's dragons are awakening from their alchemical sedation and returning to their native fury. They can remember why they were created and they now know what mankind has done to them. I enjoyed these books, dragons with an awareness, and somewhat human qualities makes for really good reading, the book is full of drama happiness sadness, and war. Can't wait to see who survives. Are the realms completely taking over.

She could smell them from a hundred miles away, except it wasn’t a scent that taunted her but thoughts. Human thoughts ass of gibberish. Other little thoughts popped up, scattered around her. Bright pinpricks of sentience. Humans lived everywhere. Even here in the barren deserts, they eked out an existence in tiny knots and clusters. Wherever there was water there were more of them. Water was one of the few things a dragon needed.

This one understands. Snow stamped on the ruins of the alchemist house and the whole mountain seemed to shake. I feel them in there, Kemir. I will clear away one of their holes.

Two men of the Adamantine Guard stood at the doors of the Speaker’s Tower, but if anyone looked closely, they might have seen that something wasn’t quite right. Even though the guards stood with their eyes staring open into the darkness, they were fast asleep. Kithyr had done that to them before he left the shelter of the Glass Cathedral, the black misshapen lump of stone that rose behind him They were only ornamental anyway, those guards. He stepped past and forced the huge doors behind them open, just wide enough to slip inside

The Memory of Flames, Book III. by Stephen Deas.

The Memory of Flames, Book III.

To read this book, upload an EPUB or FB2 file to Bookmate.

It has the same elements as its predecessors: darkness, intrigue, murders, dragons and political schemes. However, this time the characters don’t engage as much in these political schemes, as they are forced to face the consequences of their earlier scheming. If you’ve previously read any of the books in the Memory of Flames trilogy, I highly recommend reading this one as well.

As the various factions fight for control of the Adamatine Palace mankind's nemesis approaches. The realm's dragons are awakening from their alchemical sedation and returning to their native fury. They can remember why they were created and they now know what mankind has done to them. And their revenge will be brutal.

If you like dragons ala Anne McCaffrey or Ursula K. Le Guin stay away from this series. If you are looking for something to read while waiting for George R R Martin to publish the next volume in his series, give it a try. This volume is the bleak finale of a trilogy "red in tooth and claw". While each of the books can stand on its own, reading all three adds depth and resonance. The action is propelled by the needs and wants of the characters both human and dragon. And actions have consequences.

Battelogue. Competently written. I have absolutely no desire to read further than the first trilogy once it was obvious it was going to more of same.

Prince Jehal stole the show in this book. I loved the heart pounding anticipation, there were some letdowns and some major character deaths and some mysteries that are still to be discovered.

A good fantasy book, it moves fast and is not very long, less than 400 pages. Give it a try . .
  • Shou
Not nearly as good as the first two books in the series, characters do a lot of talking to themselves and the chapters that focus on the sell sword character will put you to sleep, just skip those chapters

I enjoyed these books, dragons with an awareness, and somewhat human qualities makes for really good reading, the book is full of drama happiness sadness, and war. Can't wait to see who survives. Are the realms completely taking over. Who's coming from over the sea a book and I can't wait wait to read the next one is a good one.

Very slowly everything happens.
Unfortunately, I got sucked in by reading the first book, and curiosity got me through the second an third. Lame
