Genres: fantasyhistorical fantasy

It is the waning days of the Russian monarchy. A reckless man rules the land and his dragons rule the sky. Although the Tsar continues to send his reign of fire to scorch his enemies ― Jews and Bolsheviks ― instead he lays waste to his entire country.

Even dragons are cannot quell the conspiracies arising around the Tsar, from the ranks of the oppressed, political operatives, and one nameless functionary watching power slip away. Even the Tsar’s foreign-born wife believes that his tactics are tantamount to evil.

But revolution is in the air ― and the Red Army is hatching its own weapons.

Praise for The Last Tsar's Dragons

“Vivid, gripping and actually riveting as the Red Danger takes a whole new meaning here. Loved it.” ― The Book Smugglers

“In essence, Yolen and Stemple create new origin or ending tales for key people of the Bolshevik Revolution in 1917. The dragons, though a real part of the story, are also a metaphor for power, and the story becomes as philosophical as entertaining.” ― Grasping for the Wind
