The dragons are gone, the powerful magics that broke the world diluted to little more than parlour tricks, but the kingdoms of men remain and the great game of thrones goes on. Lords deploy armies and merchant caravans as their weapons, manoeuvring for wealth and influence. But a darker power is rising - an unlikely leader with an ancient ally threatens to unleash again the madness that destroyed the world once already. Only one man knows the truth and, from the shadows, must champion humanity. The world's fate stands on the edge of a Dagger, its future on the toss of a Coin . . .

Review quote

Abraham weaves several characters into the story, each with their own flaws and ghosts that haunt them. Character development is quite deft and the author provides believable, fallible, and interesting players on his stage . . . THE DRAGON'S PATH is an enjoyable read that holds great expectations for the series * SF Signal * THE DRAGON'S PATH is a winner. The characters are engaging and well-motivated, the plot intriguing * The Wertzone * THE DRAGON'S PATH is a tremendous novel and Abraham deftly mixes the classic foundations of the genre with a sophistication expected of him and rarely found in the work of his compatriots * A Dribble of Ink * THE DRAGON'S PATH is a first superb installment in a series that has established itself already in my top level of current ongoing fantasy series * Fantasy Book Critic * Everything I look for in a fantasy * George R. R. Martin *
