Overview

A thousand years before the Winter War, Elgo, prince of the Vanadurin, killed the Dragon Sleeth and returned home with the fabulous wealth from the dead beast’s lair. But there was more in the bounty than gems and gold, for the treasure was cursed, and in time it brought death to noble and peasant, war between Man and Dwarf, strife and destruction beyond reckoning. 
 
Now, generations later, as the conflict continues, the great Dragon Black Kalgalath, in league with the Wizard Andrak, appears to avenge Sleeth’s death and claim the Dragon-cursed hoard. Against this unholy alliance, two sworn enemies set forth to find a legendary long-lost weapon: a warhammer of incalculable power that may be the only hope of victory. But neither the Warrior Maiden Elyn nor the Dwarf Thork is prepared for the dangers awaiting them on this quest....

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“[Dragondoom] was really a pleasant surprise, quite possibly the best book that I’ve read in a while. With the great plot, strong characters, atmosphere, and all the other characteristics required for a good book, I’d say that this is probably as close to a perfect fantasy novel as I’ve read.”—SF Site
 
Library Journal
Driven by a desire for glory and the lure of dragon gold, a young Vanadarin prince slays the dragon Sleeth and begins a chain of events that brings two kingdoms to the brink of war. An unusual love story provides the focus for McKiernan's latest classic fantasy tale set in the world of ``The Iron Tower'' trilogy and ``The Silver Call'' duo. Recommended.
