In the Service of Dragons
In the Service of Dragons is a fantasy series written by
Robert Stanek originally as a young adult story. It
was first published in March, 2005.
== The Novel ==
In the Service of Dragons is the continuation of Robert Stanek's multilayered
epic fantasy adventure for young adults begun with The Kingdoms and the Elves of
the Reaches and continued through The Kingdoms and the Elves of the Reaches 2,
3, and 4. In his acclaimed The Kingdoms and the Elves of the Reaches books, he
introduced us to the story of Ruin Mist, an extraordinary world of magic,
adventure and intrigue.
== Synopsis ==
The Elves of the Reaches returned from exile, bringing grave news. War came to
the Kingdoms. Many perished in the turmoil and unrest. An attempt was made to
kidnap a princess and assassinate a king. Now, from the ancient past a dark
power returns. "The Fourth Wind blows across the mountain tops," they say. And
the Twelve Clans emerge from myth and memory.
As prophecy becomes reality, the factions struggle for control, only to further
divide the lands. Some would say that King Andrew Alder foolishly agreed to
support the Elves of the Reaches, sending men to aid their cause when the causes
of all Men in all lands were being put to the test of steel. And in the North,
men back their words with action.
Against a backdrop of treachery and intrigue, murder and mayhem, the price of
freedom is high. Many will pay with their lives. Many will succumb to
imprisonment and enslavement. For when alliances shatter, old hatreds rise anew
and the plotting and scheming begin.
