Who Dares to Tame the Dragon? When Magic Battles Nature -- Which Shall Prevail?

The River Bilcad is a Dragon indeed. It is a monster but poorly restrained by the complex network of canals built to control and harness its raging waters and protect the people of Mishbil. Princess Zaryas, youthful viceroy of the city, learns, quite literally, that the ground has shifted under them all. Slow movements in the earth have raised the canals higher that the river, rendering them useless. Mishbil will slowly die of thirst. A brash young Magus named Xerlanthor comes forward with a daring plan: to use muscle and magic to dam the river and refill the canals. He seeks to win favor for his plan even as he strives to win Zaryas' heart. Ruler of a people that love to gamble, Zayras must bet everything, not knowing if her choices will lead to a double triumph--or a double disaster.

Meet the Author

Brenda W. Clough does far too many things, including journalism, cooking and the fiber arts. Her books include The Crystal Crown, The Dragon of Mishbil, The Realm Beneath, The Name of the Sun, How Like a God, Doors of Life and Death, and a children’s novel, Impossumable Summer. Recent e-books inclide Revise the World and Speak To Our Desires. She has been a finalist for both the Hugo and the Nebula awards. Locus Magazine said of her work, "Clough brings myth and science and plain human existence (complex as all get-out) together for what proves to be a fine blend, and a very good read, offering physical, psychological, and metaphysical insights into the human condition, along with the sometimes delightfully outlandish action that drives the best of pulp fiction." The New York Times Book Review says, "Ms. Clough has an appealingly cheeky imagination."
