Empires clash, and a fell power stakes its claim in the second in a new series from the New York Times best-selling author of the Raven's Shadow Trilogy.
For centuries the vast Ironship Trading Syndicate relied on drake blood - and the extraordinary powers it confers to those known as the Blood-blessed - to fuel and protect its empire. But now a fearsome power has arisen - a drake so mighty that the world will tremble before it.
Rogue Blood-blessed Claydon Torcreek, Syndicate agent Lizanne Lethridge, and ironship captain Corrick Hilemore embark upon perilous quests to chase down clues that offer faint hopes of salvation. As the world burns around them and the fires of revolution are ignited, these few are the last hope for the empire and for all of civilization.

New Narrator same great story!
A good continuation of the series
I'm not going to do that.
It's still the 3 main characters from the first book, with an addition of one other perspective which really is telling towards the story and the point of view of the 'other side'
Lizanne's story line drags a little bit because it's a lot more political than the rest, which makes sense for her, but for me it was like OK GET TO THE POINT. Luckily by the end, they did.
Clay and Hilemoore(I don't know if this is how you spell it, since I just listened to it) have grown in their own ways.
The new character is someone we know but his side of the story and his direction is very interesting.
When they find ''her'' and figure out where the white comes from.
Hilemoore. He sounds as he should.
Now. He is getting A LOT of hate here in the reviews because of the changed narrator. Now I will say this, the previous narrator is a very good narrator, but the issue with him is that he has no character depth. All his characters sounded the exact same, there was no diversity, there wasn't a difference between any of the males, any of the dialects, and the women sounded exactly like the other women and wasn't even trying very hard.
He would be excellent as a single or maybe 2 POV book, but not in one that has multiple.
Now Steve West,
He has a different voice for everyone, a different dialect depending where that character is from, and the Corventines(sp?) all sounded similar
So for people who are hating on Steve West, think again- he is a very good narrator, so is Steven Brand..but honestly he just wasn't up to snuff for this book.
I listened to it for many hours at once but in no way could listen to it in one sitting.
Give this book a go, if you haven't listened to the first book, please do for a lot of the things will not make sense.
Don't let the old narrator or new narrator discourage you- they are both VERY GOOD narrators, and the story really is worth the switch of voices.
Can't wait for the 3rd book, I hope it comes out in a year instead of 5 years later or something
