Descriere RO

With Havemercy, Shadow Magic, and Dragon Soul, the acclaimed writing team of Jaida Jones and Danielle Bennett has fused magic and technology into something that can only be termed ā€œmagicpunk.ā€ Their distinctive style, featuring a chorus of quirky first-person narrators and brilliantly sophisticated world-building, has won these young writers the plaudits of fans and critics.

In the Volstov capital of Thremedon, Owen Adamo, the hard-as-nails exā€“Chief Sergeant of the Dragon Corps, learns that Volstovā€™s ruler, the Esar, has been secretly pursuing the possibility of resurrecting magically powered sentient robot dragonsā€”even at the risk of igniting another war. That Adamo will not allow. Though he is not without friendsā€”Royston, a powerful magician, and Balfour, a former corpsmanā€”there is only so much Adamo and his allies can do. Adamo has been put out to pasture, given a professorship at the University. Royston, already exiled once, dares not risk the Esarā€™s wrath a second time. And Balfour, who lost both hands in the climactic battle of the war, is now a diplomat who spends most of his time trying to master his new handsā€”metal replacements that operate on the same magical principles as the dragons and have earned him an assortment of nicknames of which ā€œSteelhandsā€ is the least offensive.

But sometimes help comes where you least expect it. In this case, from two first-year university students freshly arrived in Thremedon from the country: Laurence, a feisty young woman whose father raised her to be the son he never had, and Toverre, her fiancĆ©, a brilliant if neurotic dandy who would sooner share his wife-to-beā€™s clothes than her bed. When a mysterious illness strikes the first-year students, Laurence takes her suspicions to Adamoā€”and unwittingly sets in motion events that will change Volstov forever.
