Sea Dragon HeirBook - 2000
It is a world in transition, where the powers of the gods have taken shape as dragons, and strive in alliance with mortal men. The Lord of the Fire Drakes has conquered and taken the crown, the lands and the powers of the Lords of the Sea Dragons, the Palindrakes. The young heir was forcibly sworn to the service of the Lord of Fire, but his mother vowed that the secret magics of the sea would not be lost, just hidden until the power could come again.And now it has, called back to the world by a twin birth to the Palindrakes -- Pharinet and Valraven, brother and sister who embody the spirits of the first Sea People to bring power to Earth. Valraven is forced by his ancestor's oath to take up service to the Emperor in the decadent capital city, but Pharinet is free to explore her heritage, the legacy of the Sea. Their secret passions will bring both death and a new hope for freedom to the Palindrake lands, and a restoration of the power of the dragons of the sea.Storm Constantine's Wraeththu Trilogy has been a cult bestseller in trade paperback, with its powerful gothic sensibility, and wildly imaginative plot. Now at last she has returned to that wild energy to create a new, compelling fantasy world. Sea Dragon Heir is the first of three books.
