Rated 0

The Draconis Memoria, Fiction, Fantasy

The action-packed start to a thrilling new epic fantasy series from New York Times bestseller Anthony Ryan, author of BLOOD SONG.

The new star of British fantasy returns with THE WAKING FIRE, a thrilling new epic fantasy of exploration and adventure, spies and assassins, explosive magic and the battle for empire.


Claydon Torcreek is a bareknuckle brawler and small-time thief, who cares little for matters of empire. Yet the failure of his latest heist (not to mention some old-fashioned blackmail) has left him with no choice but to accept a dangerous mission in service to his country.

War is coming, and Clay is almost certainly going to be on the losing side . . . unless he can hunt down a fabled creature whose valuable blood might just turn the tide - if it even exists. Clay has handled many things in his time (most of them illegal), but nothing as priceless as his nation's future.
