Overview

A new swashbuckling epic fantasy by New York Times bestselling author Margaret Weis and Robert Krammes.

The known world floats upon the Breath of God, a thick gas similar to Earth’s oceans, with land masses accessible by airship. The largest of these land masses are ruled by the rival empires of Freya and Rosia. Magic is intrinsic to the functioning of these societies, and is even incorporated into their technological devices. But now a crucial scientific discovery has occurred that could destroy the balance of power–and change the empires forever.

Praise

“Longtime writer Weis joins with video producer Krammes for this first book in a new fantasy series, The Dragon Brigade. Magic is intrinsic to the world of Aeronne, where continents float on a gaseous material known as The Breath. Majestic dragons are just some of the fantastic creatures found in this epic tale of adventure, secrets, schemes, and plots. The characters are detailed, from actions and motivations to wardrobe, and fully developed… Of interest to Weis’s fans as well as lovers of fantasy and adventure stories.”
—Library Journal

An imaginative military fantasy about empires in deadly conflict.”
Barnes & Noble

“Margaret Weis & Robert Krammes have written a grand epic fantasy reminiscent of the early Shannara books. Magic is emboldened in objects and large percentages of the populace can use it. Readers will feel they are visiting another world mindful of the English French medieval war period; but also filled with paranormal creatures; some are allies of mankind while a few are indifferent and the rest are belligerent. The key characters are fully developed, but most important is the magic of the first Dragon Brigade saga seems real.”
