ELEGY FOR A LOST STAR
Genre: Fantasy, General Fantasy
This fifth entry in the Symphony of Ages saga lays the groundwork for a major turning point, as Rhapsody, Ashe and their companions struggle for peace in their adopted homeland. The dragon Anwyn, imprisoned underground for three years, is awakened by the cataclysm that concluded the previous book. She remembers only the person responsible for her imprisonment—Rhapsody—and feels the need for revenge. The Firbolg king, Achmed, discovers the destruction of his glass tower and begins to rebuild, while assassins seeking vengeance stalk him.
