Warlockry has been rare in Ethshar . . . until The Night of Madness, when a mysterious object falls from the heavens, sending out a wave of magic in the form of a dream. All who have the dream awaken in panic. But some of them also awaken to the power or Warlockry.

Throughout the land these newly made warlocks wreak havoc; looting and rioting, petty personal revenge, and uncontrollable madness run rampant. Worse, people are hearing a mysterious, irresistible call from which they never return.

Into this chaos steps the power-hungry Lord Faran, who seeks to use his new warlock powers to overthrow the government and take possession of the throne.

Who will dare to oppose him?

Review quote

Watt-Evans explores the theme of whether any man can single-handedly right all the wrongs of the world, and whether any man can ever know what true justice is. This, plus a unique concept of the nature of dragons, how they come into being and their true relationship with humans, makes Dragon Weather far more than just another sword-and-sorcery tale. Orlando Sentinel

Watt-Evans lives up to expectations . . . well-told . . . a fantasy of high quality and considerable interest. Booklist on Touched by the Gods

The pacing is excellent, the epic proportions and strangeness fascinate. . . . This novel is great fun, with intrigue, adventure, magic and horror. Publishers Weekly on Touched by the Gods
