Stephen Deas re-write of his second book in the Dragon trilogy, The King of the Crags is finished. The book should will released in April 2010 and will eventually be followed by The Order of the Scales. Here's the blurb by the way :
Prince Jehal has murdered, poisioned and betrayed his way to the top. There is a new speaker for the realms, his opposition has been crushed, now he just has to enjoy the fruits of power. And yet ...He feels more for the wife he married for power than perhaps he should and his lover knows it. And out in the realms those loyal to the old regime are still plotting. and there are rumours that the Red Riders, heralds of revolution and doom are on the ride. And still no-one has found the famous white dragon. The dragon that, if it lived, will have long since recovered from the effects of the alchemical liquid fed to the the dragons of the realms to keep them docile, to block their memories of a time when they ruled and the world burned ...
In the meantime, Deas posted on his site his gazetteer, a new map and an excerpt from The King of The Crags. The gazetteer is 180 pages of stuff about the dragon-realms geography and people. I updated my map index and here are the other links :
