'Fabulous . . . Sure to be another fantasy classic' Huffington Post UK 'The world Ryan has created for his new dragon adventure is a joy to visualise' SciFiNow Claydon Torcreek is a Blood-blessed, able to channel the powers contained in the blood of wild drakes. While his brethren serve as elite spies and assassins, Clay prefers the life of a small-time criminal in the dangerous slums of Carvenport. Yet war is coming, and it seems Clay is going to end up on the losing side - unless he can track down a legendary drake, whose powerful blood might just be enough to achieve victory.

This book examines waking life and its history and language as if it were abardo state rather than ultimate reality. Bardo is at once prose poetry, intimate memoir, and anthropological inquiry"--Provided by publisher.
