Publisher's Summary

Seventy-five years ago, the dragons fell from the sky. We thought they were just meteorites - six terrifying explosions rang the world like a bell. When the dust settled, we went on with our lives as though nothing had happened.
More than a decade later, five of the eggs hatched. The dragons that emerged were small and weak. They kept to the shadows, working in secret to persuade people to do their bidding, offering magic as payment and reward. Years passed...and still we didn't notice the evil growing in our midst.
The war began suddenly. Survivors called it the "apocalypse" - nine billion people killed in an afternoon. Then the dragons revealed themselves, burning huge swaths of what remained, taunting and mocking and murdering the survivors.
Four leaders arose: the Wizard, the Dragon Rider, the Monk, and the Dragon Slayer. Allied with the rebel dragon, they waged war for years until they, too, were defeated, scattered, or killed.
When the war ended, only one dragon remained...but that single dragon was enough to plunge the world into tyranny.

A brilliant beginning!

I listened to Mr. Wells's Sovereign of the Seven Isles series and really enjoyed the books. He's brought his ability to tell a great story to a whole new level with this book however. He creates a mesmerizing post-apocalyptic world combining sci-fi and fantasy in a brilliant and original way and pulled off one of the most enjoyable books I've read or listened to in a few years. I have the second book downloaded and eagerly await starting it. I would recommend this book to any fan of the sci-fi or fantasy genres and I believe it's a great book for anyone who enjoys a good story to grab up even if you typically don't follow these genres. Give it a try, I guarantee you won't regret it!
