Rage of the Dragon: Book 3 of the Dragonships of Vindras
Margaret Weis & Tracy Hickman
Tor, $25.99; 362pp
Release Date: April 24, 2012
This is the third in the series and while it is readable on its own, reading the first two volumes helps immensely.

Skylan and his crew are sailing away from the burning city of Sinaria , hoping to escape his cousin and the troops dispatched to return him. He has just discovered that his friend the ogre, Keeper is dead, apparently murdered but Skylan doesn’t want to say that. He also needs to decide what to do about the ogre ships closing on them. They had hoped to use Keeper’s help to convince them to fight together against the ship piloted by his cousin Raegar.

Without giving up too much, the ship sinks and they are taken by the Aquin, a hidden race of humans that live on islands that require extensive underwater movement to enter.

Skylan and his betrothed Aylaen have a quest that supersedes their desire to return home. They must acquire all five spiritbones of the Vectia dragon. The story is engaging and you have one bit of knowledge that makes it encouraging. It is narrated by Farinn the youngest of the humans questing after the spiritbones.

Highly Recommended ~~ Bob LaPierre
