New religions are giving power to these brash interloping young gods, and the only way to stop them lies with the five bones of the Vektia Dragons—for these bones hold the primordial power of creation and destruction.

In the land of mortals, Raegar, a Vindraisi turned Aelon warrior-priest, searches for the spirit bones. Torval has a champion as well—Skylan Ivorson, sea-raider and high chief of the Vindrasi clans, cousin and sworn enemy to Raegar. But Skylan and his people are captives in Sinaria, where they must fight for survival. The fates of men and gods and are rushing headlong to destruction. Skylan can stop the calamity, but only if he discovers the secret of the dragon.

Praise for Secret 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 on Bones of the Dragon

“Weis and Hickman (Dragons of the Highlord Skies) have created a believably human story out of their mix of saga and sorcery.” —Publishers Weeky on Bones of the Dragon
