Noonshade - James Barclay

Too many dragons is very, very bad.

After defeating the nasty bad guys in the first book, the Raven have another large problem. They have opened a rift which will allow a whole bunch of interdimensional dragons through to do a lot more than trash the joint and eat a few cows.

To help stop this they must develop a relationship with a powerful dragon clan and come to some sort of arrangement. This leads Hirad Coldheart into a personal relationship with the dragon leader. These dragons are actually pretty interesting characters, with their own politics and society. Not to see there isn't a bunch of mercenary band swordplay, etc., as per the first book.

3.5 out of 5
