THE WAKING FIRE by Anthony Ryan

The following review originally appeared at Fantasy-Faction.com.

In the first book of this new series, Ryan introduces readers to a fascinating world where nations have been replaced by companies, and the most precious resource available is the blood of a drake, which can be used by Blood-burners to fuel their magic. 779 more words

The Waking Fire by Anthony Ryan - Review

Published: July 5, 2016

Publisher: Ace

Genre: Fantasy

Pages: 592 (Hardcover)

My Rating: 3.5/5.0


The Waking Fire is set in a vibrant new world where the blood of drakes—creatures similar to dragons—is valued beyond reckoning, and can be distilled into elixirs that grant fearsome powers to those who are “blood-blessed.” The novel follows an unregistered blood-blessed as he searches for an elusive variety of drake so potent, its capture would mean unrivalled riches; the second in command of a blood-burning ironclad ship; and a young woman in a lifelong contract to a trading syndicate, whose espionage mission places her on the front lines of a newly declared war. 530 more words
