       Additional Information  
     
      Karadur and Tenjiro are twin sons of Kojiro Antani, the dragon lord of Ippa. But only Karadur, whose name means "fire-bringer," bears the blood of the dragon in his veins. His younger brother, Tenjiro or "Heaven's hope," was second out of the womb and is the weakest and smallest of the two. As the twins grow to maturity, Karadur is anxious to attain the promise of his blood and transform into the dragon he is capable of becoming. But Tenjiro, who bears the scars of Karadur's claws, resents his older brother and, on the eve of Karadur's transformation, steals the talisman that makes the change possible. That same night he disappears, fleeing to a distant, icy realm where he will reemerge as a powerful wizard bent on destroying his older brother. But Karadur, lord of Dragon Keep, is prepared to go to war against Tenjiro, and it's likely only one will survive.

    Elizabeth A. Lynn, winner of two World Fantasy Awards, has written her first novel in thirteen years, proving once again that she is one of the fantasy genre's most respected and enduring voices. In Lynn's new novel, twin boys are born to the dragon king of Ippa, though only one-Karadur Atani-is born of dragon blood. But Karadur Atani will never become a dragon, for his bitter twin brother steals his talisman and leaves him trapped in the body of an ordinary man. As a powerful wizard rains death and destruction on the people of Ippa, Karadur Atani leads his warriors into war-to challenge his wizard brother and to reclaim his destiny.
