In the age of airships, dragons and automatons, parenthood has never been so hard.
It's been two years since Pontopa Wells escaped from the clutches of a power-hungry king and exiled to the Southlands: a continent infested with a noxious plant called secicao.
Now, Pontopa must parent her old mentor Sukina's son, Taka, and she doesn't know how to handle the task. Particularly when she struggles to live up to Sukina's name and assume the role of a dragonseer — a leader of both men and dragons.
But when Taka goes missing, Pontopa must travel to a tropical continent, where she will meet an indigenous people who can reveal to her who she truly is.
Meanwhile, the mysterious Empress Finesia is on the rise, with the power to inhabit minds and a plan to use secicao to extinguish all mortal life on the planet.
Can Pontopa rescue Taka and, in doing so, put an end to Empress Finesia's nefarious ways?
With a twisty and magmatic plot, ability enhancing concoctions, naval battles, wild weather, and automatons galore (both old and new), the much loved Dragonseer steampunk fantasy adventure continues in Dragonseers and Bloodlines.
