Currently the fourth story in the ‘The Book of Deacon’ series.
When i first read ‘The Book of Deacon’ several years ago, this short story wasn’t available and the difference is very noticeable when you go straight into ‘The Book of Deacon’ from this short: it’s a much better beginning. So, IMHO, a must read for anyone before starting ‘The Book of Deacon’.
As with ‘The Rise of the Red Shadow’ this story also tells us of one of the ‘Chosen’ prior to the events in the main story. It also does dragons really well, and any book that does dragons really well is a great book. We liked this one very much.
