First in a brand-new fantasy saga by the co-creator of Dragonlance Once humans had magic and an alliance with dragons. Now they and the other races have been enslaved by the Rhonas Empire-the elves-and can't even remember the world the way it used to be. But thanks to the intervention of one determined dwarf and the human slave warrior known as Drakis, all of that is about to change.
In the towering launch of Hickman's Annals of Drakis high fantasy series, Drakis, a lowly human warrior-slave, is content to fight for the empire of elves as they crush the last dwarf king. However, everything changes when a captured dwarf jester shatters his master's well of power. Abruptly released from implanted memories, Drakis and his comrades realize to their horror that their beloved masters are in fact cruel tyrants. The dwarf insists that Drakis is the liberating hero foretold in legends, and soon they are all on the run. While word spreads of the rebellion, conspiracies twist and turn as the reluctant Drakis finds that fate has forced him onto a path that may indeed awaken the storied dragons but destroy everything he values. With this volume, bestseller Hickman (The Immortals) creates memorable characters and realms of immense richness, while holding the reader enthralled with exhilarating action.
