National best-selling fantasy legend Mercedes Lackey created a vivid, dynamic fusion of the Upper and Lower Kingdoms of ancient Egypt with the most exciting, authentic and believable portrayal of dragons ever imagined. In the second novel in Mercedes Lackey’s richly-conceived Dragon Jousters series, the dragonrider Vetch escapes to Alta, the subjugated land of his birth. There, he hopes to teach his people to raise and train dragons—and build an army that will liberate his homeland.
“Elegant, compelling…A must-read for dragon lovers in particular and for fantasy fans in general.”—Publishers Weekly
“It’s fun to see a different spin on dragons…and as usual Lackey makes it all compelling.”—Locus
