Bahr, the god of Fire and War, is terrorising the land. Nothing can stand before him and Beren faces everything he loves being lost.
After witnessing Bahr's devastating power, Beren despairs, until the mysterious king of the Eldarkind offers him one glimmer of hope - but it comes at a cost. To have any chance, Beren must have faith, set aside his lifelong differences, and place his trust in the dragons who destroyed his home and family. Unless he does so, they are all doomed.
As Bahr's vengeful eye turns to their hostile alliance, their differences threaten to divide man, Eldarkind, and dragon. Can Beren forge the strongest allies from his bitterest enemies before Bahr destroys them all?
Discover how the epic fantasy tale begins in this prequel, The First Crown: A Caledan Novelette. If you liked The Lord of the Rings, The Inheritance Cycle, or the Books of Pellinor, then you'll love the Books of Caledan series.
The kingdom of Caledan is thrown into turmoil by the queen's murder. Her heir, Soren, flees with a price on his head after being framed for the killing by his uncle Zaki, who seizes the legendary throne of the Dragon Kings and rules with an iron fist to crush dissent. However, suspicion is rife following Zaki's ill-omened coronation and a crime ill-fitting the beloved Prince Soren.
Now a fugitive roaming the wild, Soren has lost everything. He tries to reconcile his grief and determine how he can reclaim his throne when fate has left him with just one old man, but the odds are greatly against him. If no-one follows him, or believes his innocence, is he worthy to rule?
Across the kingdom, Soren's cousin Eve takes matters into her own hands and journeys to the ethereal Eldarkind on his behalf, however this reveals her own inescapable fate. As she comes to terms with the gift and the curse of magic, Eve risks her life to help Soren.
Soren has defeated his usurping uncle and the semblance of peace has returned to Caledan, but surrounded by the twelve noble houses of Caledan, King Soren can trust few. In the shadows, treasonous thoughts grow. When news of Zaki's presence in Roher reaches Soren, can he ally all of Caledan to his cause - and keep them?
Zaki has not given up on his plans to regain Caledan's throne. First he must prove himself to Harad, the mighty king of Roher, but Zaki will stop at nothing to gain the support of Roher's army, march on Caledan's borders and take back the throne of the dragon kings.
War returns to Caledan, but a greater threat looms. The pact is broken. The Eldarkind are fading. The dragons war amongst themselves. A power too terrible to name grows in the North, and He seeks revenge. Only Eve stands in His way - but can she stop magic as old as time?
Caledan is caught in the middle of a warring dragon clan, and Soren is powerless to save his people, or stop the attacks, but worse is coming. The elementals are rising. If Caledan is not destroyed by dragon fire, it will be obliterated by the ancient elemental magic.
Soren despairs as the alliance between men, Eldarkind and dragons falls apart. Strife and fear are rampant, and his inability to stop the rebel dragon attacks undermines the peace he has worked so hard to secure.
As the rifts between the three races grow, Soren, the Eldarkind and the dragons must defeat the rebel dragons and rebuild their pact to have any chance of facing the greater threat of the elementals; for once they rise, it will be too late.
