Secret of the Dragon

Dragonships of Vindras (Volume 2)

Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman

Tor Books

New gods are challenging the old high god, Torval, for rulership of the world.  The only way to stop these brash interlopers lies with the five Bones of the Vektia Dragons—the five primal dragons hidden away by the dragon goddess, Vindrash, during the creation of the world.  Without these dragons, one of the new gods, Aelon, cannot seize power.  The only hope of the Vindrasi lies in finding the dragon bones before the followers of Aelon can use them to destroy the old gods.  But the Vindrasi gods have a traitor in their midst…
 
In the land of mortals, Raegar, a Vindraisi turned Aelon warrior-priest, searches for the spirit bones.  The gods have a champion of their own—Skylan Ivorson, sea-raider and high chief of the Vindrasi clans, and sworn enemy to Raegar.  But Skylan is a prisoner on his own ship. The ship’s dragon, Kahg, has vanished and some believe he is dead.  Skylan and his people are taken as captives to Sinaria, where they must fight in a game known as the Para Dix. The fates of men and gods and are dragons are rushing headlong to destruction. Skylan can stop the calamity, but only if he discovers the secret of the dragon.

Chapter1

BOOK ONE

The Vindrasi believe that every person has his own wyrd, as does every god. The wyrds of men and gods are intertwined, often to the detriment of man, for the gods are all-seeing, whereas man is blind. But sometimes the gods discover that foresight is a curse, not a blessing. For though a god may believe he is sure of the future of creation, no god can ever be truly confident that what he sees will come to pass, for no god can dictate the actions of men.

For men are free to choose. And thus men may unwittingly unravel the plans of the gods. . . .

REVIEWS

Praise for Secret of the Dragon

Praise for Bones of the Dragon
 
"Weis and Hickman, known for their Dragonlance role-playing game and novels, the "Darksword" series, and the Death Gate cycle, again demonstrate their talent for world building and for creating likable yet flawed heroes. This Norse-flavored series opener should have a large following."
--Library Journal 
 
"Weis and Hickman (Dragons of the Highlord Skies) have created a believably human story out of their mix of saga and sorcery."
--Publishers Weeky
