This omnibus edition features a brand-new short story, “Learning to Dream”! Plus:
During the Last War, Gaven d'Lyrandar hunted powerful dragonshards in the world's most dangerous places. But on one mission the danger proved too great, and he found an ancient artifact whose power filled his mind with strange visions of impending doom.
Exiled from his House, spurned by his family, Gaven has spent years locked in the island prison of Dreadhold, the most impregnable fortress in all the world. He has whiled away the years on the verge of madness, his only companion a hated war criminal who seems all too interested in Gaven.
But when a bold prison break sets Gaven loose upon the world and in the company of a desperate band of outlaws, his strange dreams begin to make sense. The shards of vision begin to form a pattern, a fulfillment of the ancient Prophecy of the Dragons. As Gaven becomes both hunter and hunted, he must put the pieces together before it is too late, before the Storm Dragon awakens to shake the foundations of the world.
"It takes power to seize power. And the dragons have power to spare."
For millennia, the dragons have watched the great events of the world unfold, nurturing and destroying entire nations when necessary, always guided by the Draconic Prophecy.
But now, the younger races are seizing their own destiny. Mere mortals have taken a hand in the Prophecy -- and a select few think they have found a way to harness the power of the mighty dragons for their own ends:
The Dragon Forge.
Gaven Lyrandar, Exile and Storm Dragon, stands on the edge of two destinies: Master of the Dragon Forge -- or its slave.
Eberron’s fragile peace is crumbling. Armies gather, and for the first time in generations, dragons rise to war. And the one man at the center of it all, the prophesied Storm Dragon, lies helpless, his powers stripped away, his mind teetering on the edge of madness.
Gaven d’Lyrandar—exile, outlaw, and the Storm Dragon himself—may be the one person able to stop the impending dragon war. But he can’t remember who he is. Wounded, tormented, and hovering on the brink of madness, Gaven’s friends—and even a few enemies—have to save him before it’s too late.
The Eberron setting’s first hardcover trilogy, James Wyatt’s The Draconic Prophecies introduces readers to new lands and new cultures and brings about political changes to the hit setting. It tells the story of a once-proud hero fallen to disgrace and madness, who must learn to wield extraordinary powers to save those he loves, and to keep the world from sliding back into decades of warfare.
“Every James Wyatt novel I read is a delight—may there be many, many more!”
—Ed Greenwood, Author and creator of Forgotten Realms
