series. I'll probably go back and finish it at some point, but her
new series goes back, wisely I think, to her strengths in second world
"Heritage of Power" is a spin off from her "Dragon Blood" series.
As her introduction notes, she left most of her major characters from that
series in a pretty good place and now introduces two new main leads with
their own problems.
Telryn "Trip" Yert is a pilot in the Iskandian air force mostly tasked
with fighting pirates in the somewhat backwards eastern reaches of
the country. Suddenly called to the Capital by the semi-legendary
General Zirkander for a special mission, he finds that the rumors
of trouble to the west are more than true: Dragons are back in the world,
the kingdom's only dragon allies have vanished, and the Capital and
surrounding areas are under daily dragon attack. Trip is not sure
why he was chosen, especially as he always trys to keep a low profile
on anything to do with magic as his mother was hung (non-judicially, but
just as dead) as a witch.
Rysha Ravenwood is a bookish and possibly brilliant young woman who
has decided, in the wake of Zirkander's well publicized exploits
in saving the kingdom from invasion and then dragons, to break with
her noble family and join the Iskandian special forces. She has
just started the training, doing OK, if not outstandingly well,
when she too is summoned by Zirkander.
The assembled team, which includes some welcome faces (and blades) from
"Dragon Blood" has the mission to a) Find a historic dragon killing sword
believed to be currently in pirate hands and b) Find the portal dragons
are using to return to the world and close it with extreme prejudice.
This book sees them off on "a" and is entertainingly done. Buroker's
heroes tend to banter in a way people don't anymore when any joke gone
bad can get you fired and are generally fun to be around. She usually
has a "budding romance" subplot, and here you'll not be surprised to
learn it is the two viewpoint characters, not that there's a lot of
time for romance in between skulking and blowing things up. The series
title appears to refer to Trip, who it seems obvious (though not yet to
him) is most likely a half-dragon though how that could be possible
given the historical dearth of dragons remains to be seen.
This is a new-ish set of characters, with some ones you may know if you have read the rest of the Dragon Blood series.
The adventure is longer than just one book. The first part is covered in Dragon Storm. Pirates, new ones, are back and this time they’re on the islands and the “pirate king” happens to have a sword that they need.
And with Kaika, Duck and others you may know (Jaxi!), Trip and his friends attempt to get that sword. And because it’s a Lindsay Buroker book, they do so with humor, action and seriousness and fun. And definite pilot chatter.
Anyway, as I expect from this author, a very fun and exciting read. I do enjoy her books in this universe and her other fantasy universe (emperor's edge). This is written as a great entry point into this universe as well. There are many stories that come before, but you do not need any of them to happily read this, and I believe you will be caught up in a fun new world within a chapter or two!
If you have read other books of her's set in this universe, her quality is most definitely up to par and you will find many familiar much loved characters appearing and being their normal amusing selfs, even if they are not the main focus.
In conclusion, I enjoyed this book. I think you might too if you enjoy fantasy.
