From the Publisher:
In a Dragaera reduced by Adron's Disaster, an experiment in wizardry gone horribly wrong, to a shadow of its former self, the descendants of Khaavren, Pel, Aerich, and Tazendra join forces with a surviving Phoeniz heir named Zerika to once again take on the enemies of their Empire, in the sequel to The Phoenix Guards and Five Hundred Years After. Reprint.
Annotation:
This swashbuckling fantasy takes place a few hundred years subsequent to FIVE HUNDRED YEARS AFTER, and begins a new trilogy, THE VISCOUNT OF ADRILANKHA. Piro, the Viscount in question, is the son of Khaavren, hero of THE PHOENIX GUARDS and FIVE HUNDRED YEARS AFTER. At the conclusion of the latter book, the Emperor was assassinated and the Orb, both the source of sorcery and of imperial rule, vanished. The Dragaeran Empire is still without sorcery and a ruler. A warlord, the Dragonlord Duke of Kana, determines to become Emperor by right of conquest. Opposing him are Piro and sundry companions, who are charged with accompanying Zerika, the newly discovered rightful heir to the Dragaeran Throne on a dangerous quest to recover the Orb and thus assume imperial power.
Author Bio
Steven Brust
Stephen Brust provides further evidence of Minnesota as a hotbed of science fiction and fantasy activity, joining Neil Gaiman, Poul Anderson, Clifford D. Simak, Gordon R. Dickson, Emma Bull, Will Shetterly, and others who also live, or lived, there. Much of Brust's work has been a part of the complex Dragaeran Empire series. Beginning with JHEREG (1983), the series follows the saga of the assassin antihero after whom the series is named. Brust's Hungarian ancestry infuses the series, which is set in a kind of alternate world version of Eastern Europe where dragons and magic are commonplace. Equally influenced by the works of Alexander Dumas, Brust has also written several novels in this series based loosely on the Three Musketeers, THE PHOENIX GUARDS (1991) and FIVE HUNDRED YEARS AFTER (1994). Brust is also a musician has recorded a solo CD (which he has stated on several occasions will be his ONLY solo CD) of folk music, and several CDs with the groups, including Cats Laughing--a marginally well-known (in the sf community, anyway) neo-folk band. In 1992, he combined his interests in music and fiction with THE GYPSY, a novel co-written with Megan Lindholm that was released as a CD-ROM containing music the band Boiled in Lead, featuring another Cats Laughing member, Adam Stemple--who, himself, is the son of fantasy author Jane Yolan.
