War and destruction loom large in this exciting, standalone second volume of an epic fantasy trilogy by two USA Today bestselling authors
USA Today and New York Times bestselling authors Mercedes Lackey and James Mallory continue The Dragon Prophecy, which began with Crown of Vengeance. Set in a masterful fantasy world filled with elves and demons, unicorns and goblins, and mages and warriors, this entertaining fantasy continues the legend of Vieliessar Farcarinon, the first High King.
As Vieliessar confronts the first waves of the forces of Darkness, her destined Bondmate, Runacar, leads a rag-tag group to war.
