Overview

Epic fantasy in the tradition of Guy Gavriel Kay and Jacqueline Carey. “A world of large-scale epic fantasy... This is a rare find and not to be missed.” New York Times bestselling author Barb Hendee.

In the heart of the singing desert, the people are fading from the world. Mothers bear few live children, the warriors and wardens are hard-pressed to protect those who remain, and the vash’ai—the great cats who have called the people kithren for as long as there have been stories—bond with fewer humans each year. High above, the Sun Dragon sings a song of life and love while far below, the Earth Dragon slumbers as she has since the beginning of time. Her sleep is fitful, and from the darkness of her dreams come whispers of war… and death.
 
Sulema is a newly minted warrior of the people and a true Ja'Akari—a daughter of the unforgiving desert. When a mysterious young man appears in her home of Aish Kalumm, she learns that the Dragon King is dying in distant Atualon. As the king fades, so does the magic that sings the Earth Dragon to sleep.



There are those who wish to keep the dragon trapped in endless slumber. Others would tap her power to claim it for their own. And there are those who would have her wake, so they might laugh as the world burns.

I will definitely be reading more of this series.

This is a fantastic debut from a new author! Her world building is both detailed and lyrical and her characters come to life on the page. True, this book is definitely the setup for later books, but if the promise stays true, it will be a kick-ass series.

Skip this one - nothing new here. The plot is rote and formulaic. The animal "companions" have been done so many times before and so much better. I don't really care what happens to these characters and so won't be purchasing any future books in the series. Too many books and too little time to waste on "B" list books. My grade for this one only C+. Tor used to be #1 in new authors for fantasy and more and more new releases by Tor are falling short. I consistently find better writers and stories from Orbit so far in 2017!

This book was really good; I couldn’t put it down and finished it in three days. I think the author weaves an intricate story and there are several characters I enjoyed, especially Jian. It made me laugh, it made me cry, and it made me excited to read the next novel. I think that her world is different than what is out there; there is a lot of diversity. You don’t find much like that in any other stories. I can’t wait to read the next story and I hope they consider putting this on the big screen, I could totally see this being a movie adaptation.
