Overview

This brand-new omnibus is the third in a series collecting Irene Radford's acclaimed Dragon novels.

Volume I includes the complete trilogy of The Dragon Nimbus:
The Glass Dragon, The Perfect Princess, and The Lonliest Magician

Volume II includes the first two novels in The Dragon Nimbus History quartet:

Volume III includes the last two novels in The Dragon Nimbus History quartet:
The Renegade Dragon and The Wizard's Treasure

The Renegade Dragon:
Though the Great Wars of Disruption have ended, the kingdom of Coronnan faces new and equally dangerous crises: a Terran-based plague begins to spread through the outlying lands; the queen's father plots to introduce forbidden technology in exchange for the precious resources needed by his own people; and the head of the Commune of Magicians launches a campaign to gain control of all magical knowledge and power.

The Wizard's Treasure:
Journeymen magicians Marcus and Robb have been sent on a quest by Senior Magician Jaylor to find the missing dragons of Coronnan and bring them back to the kingdom. But their quest leads to a far different discovery: an ancient treasure trove, spell-protected to trap the unwary. As the two are caught by the treasure's spell, unable to aid Coronnan or themselves, other events are unfolding which may forever alter the course of Coronnan's destiny.

A letter from the author, Irene Radford:

Welcome to the world where dragons are real and magic works. If you are new to the Dragon Nimbus, pull up a chair and join us as we revel in tales that have touched my heart more than anything else I've written under any pen name. If you are returning after an absence, I am very happy to have you back.

This is a world that began with a Christmas gift of a blown-glass dragon. The dragon sat proudly on the knick-knack shelf for several months, loved and admired, reluctantly dusted, and totally inert. Then one night at dinner, my son remarked, "You know, Mom, I think dragons are born all dark, like that little pewter dragon, then they get more silvery as they grow up until they are as clear as glass." The dragon came to life for me.

Out of that chance remark came first one book, then three, five, seven, and finally ten. I built a career on these books and loved every minute of the process. These characters still live in my mind many years after they jumped into their stories and dragged me along with them.

Many thanks to DAW Books and my editor Sheila Gilbert for reviving The Dragon Nimbus a lucky thirteen years after they first debuted.

With these omnibus volumes, you can read about the dragons with crystal fur that directs your eye elsewhere yet defies you to look anywhere else. Wonderful dragons full of wit and wisdom. Magic abounds. Magicians and mundanes alike learn about their world and special life lessons as they explore dragon lore past and present. The books will be presented in the order in which they were written, and the order that makes the most sense of the entwined tales.

So, sit back and enjoy with me. And may reading take you soaring with Dragons.
