The Waking Fire is set in a vibrant new world where the blood of drakes—creatures similar to dragons—is valued beyond reckoning, and can be distilled into elixirs that grant fearsome powers to those who are “blood-blessed.” The novel follows an unregistered blood-blessed as he searches for an elusive variety of drake so potent, its capture would mean unrivalled riches; the second in command of a blood-burning ironclad ship; and a young woman in a lifelong contract to a trading syndicate, whose espionage mission places her on the front lines of a newly declared war. As empires clash and arcane mysteries reveal themselves, these characters are tested again and again and soon discover that the fate of the world rests on their shoulders. The Draconis Memoria is a remarkable new epic fantasy series with steampunk flavor, full of the phenomenal worldbuilding and non-stop action that have gained Anthony Ryan a global fan base.

A book by Anthony Ryan

Anthony Ryan is a British fantasy and science fiction writer. Not much information is available about him. First of all, it should be noted that "Anthony Ryan" is a pseudonym, the need for which arose due to the restrictions associated with the position of the author. He worked for a long time in the British civil service as a researcher, a historian by training, lives in London. He began to feel a craving for writing early enough, but he took it seriously when he was already in his third decade of life. Ryan wrote his debut epic fantasy novel, Blood Song, for six and a half years, and then received rejections from literary agencies for another year (he believes that he was turned down by almost all British agents). In such circumstances, Anthony decided to try to publish on his own - through platforms that publish e-books. From August to December 2011, the novel did not sell very well on Smashwords, and from January 2012 the novel was released for the Kindle and the situation has improved markedly. When around 3,500 copies were sold on Amazon, Ryan went to editor-in-chief of Ace Books, and by the time the contract was signed in July 2012, more than 20,000 Blood Song eBooks had been submitted. Soon the rights to the British edition were bought by Orbit. The terms of the contracts allowed Anthony Ryan to leave his main job and devote his time to writing. Bibliography Raven`s Shadow: 2011 - Blood Song 2014 - Tower Lord 2015 - Queen of Fire Slab City Blues: 2011 - Slab City Blues 2011 - A Song for Madame Choi 2012 - A Hymn To Gods Long Dead 2013 - The Ballad of bad jack
