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.

Are the realms completely taking over.

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

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.
