The Shrouded Realm is the first book of the Origin of Dragonrealm series, which is also known as Origins of the Dragonrealm.
The Vraad, a race of master wizards, rule Nimth with little regard even for the laws of nature, twisting their world to their whims. Their carelessness, though, at last forces them into a desperate plan of escape from ravaged Nimth to a mysterious world. Yet, even if they manage to overcome personal emnities and vendettas, the Vraad will soon learn that their new home, a place of dragons, will not so readily bend and, instead, could prove their master.
