The Waking Fire: The Draconis Memoria by Anthony Ryan (July 5, 2016 by Ace)

Anthony Ryan returns with the first book of a brand new saga following his hit epic fantasy Raven’s Shadow trilogy. Even though Blood Song remains my favorite book of that series, I’m interested to see what he has in store for readers next. Plus, who can say no to dragons?

Harvested from the veins of captive or hunted Reds, Green, Blues and Blacks, it can be distilled into elixirs that give fearsome powers to the rare men and women who have the ability harness them—known as the blood-blessed.
But not many know the truth: that the lines of drakes are weakening. If they fail, war with the neighboring Corvantine Empire will follow swiftly. The Syndicate’s last hope resides in whispers of the existence of another breed of drake, far more powerful than the rest, and the few who have been chosen by fate to seek it.
Claydon Torcreek is a petty thief and an unregistered blood-blessed, who finds himself pressed into service by the protectorate and sent to wild, uncharted territories in search of a creature he believes is little more than legend. Lizanne Lethridge is a formidable spy and assassin, facing gravest danger on an espionage mission deep into the heart of enemy territory. And Corrick Hilemore is the second lieutenant of an ironship, whose pursuit of ruthless brigands leads him to a far greater threat at the edge of the world.
As lives and empires clash and intertwine, as the unknown and the known collide, all three must fight to turn the tide of a coming war, or drown in its wake.”

  1. I just realized Lynn picked this too for her WoW but she showed the UK cover. Now I know why this sounds so familiar! I need to read Anthony Ryan, I feel like I’m missing out:-)


  2. Haha – too cool! We both went the same way but with alternative covers! I love both the covers to be honest and I’m looking forward to reading this to see how it stacks up – that sounds kind of awful and I don’t mean it in a bad way! It does sound really good. I saw it on NG but only US and Canada – sad am I!
    Lynn 😀


    • Yes, I saw that on NG too! Not sure yet if I want to request the ARC or just wait, since I have more than enough on my plate for the summer at the moment, lol! I think Orbit UK is pubbing it over there, right? Hope they will put it up on NG too 🙂
