To save the future, they must delve into the past - and unravel a timeless mystery that might just turn the tide once and for all.

Ryan concludes the Draconis Memoria epic fantasy trilogy (after The Legion of Flame) with an ending riddled with political intrigue, bloody battles, and magic. Using shifting perspectives and points of view, Ryan continues to expand this visually rich landscape as he builds up to an all-out battle for the fate of the world. As the White Drake's army wreaks havoc, leaving ash and death in its wake, small-time criminal Claydon Torcreek and master spy Lizanne Lethridge rally their allies. Relying on their powers and knowledge, this ragtag group moves against the Drake, hoping to turn the tide of battle. But saving the world means the secrets of the past must all come to light. Ryan skillfully navigates multiple narrators to unveil a world steeped in magic and on the brink of destruction. Both the characters and the setting are irresistible right through to the end.
