Description

Empires clash and a fell power stakes its claim in the second in a new series from the New York Times bestselling author of the Raven's Shadow Trilogy. For centuries, the vast Ironship Trading Syndicate relied on drake blood--and the extraordinary powers it confers to those known as the Blood-blessed--to fuel and protect its empire. But now, a fearsome power has arisen--a drake so mighty that the world will tremble before it. Rogue Blood-blessed Claydon Torcreek, Syndicate agent Lizanne Lethridge, and ironship captain Corrick Hilemore embark upon perilous quests to chase down clues that offer faint hopes of salvation. As the world burns around them, and the fires of revolution are ignited, these few are the last hope for the empire and for all of civilization.show more

Review quote

Praise for The Waking Fire "The Waking Fire is a marvellous piece of imagination with plenty of twists, a refreshingly different setting and excellent world-building. A great read."--Mark Lawrence, author of Red Sister "A bright and magical world for you to explore along with the wonderfully woven prose as a guide through what is sure to be another fantasy classic."--The Huffington Post (UK) "Part Indiana Jones, part Pirates of the Caribbean and part Mistborn. It's got wonderful, memorable characters and great action...I loved it."--Django Wexler, author of The Guns of Empire "A fascinating world run mostly by corporations, where much of the power comes from dragon blood, provides a compelling backdrop for this sprawling epic fantasy...Breakneck pacing and sheer wonder keep the story compelling."--Locus "Ryan handily juggles draconic fantasy, espionage and steampunk naval fiction with realism and effortless skill."--Publishers Weekly "Ryan, author of the bestselling Raven's Shadow trilogy, is back with the first novel in a new trilogy that delivers on action, adventure, espionage--and dragons...This book will leave readers eagerly awaiting the sequel."--Booklist (starred review)show more
