They must stay or go…
But danger will soon follow.
Surrounded by intense dragon wars brewing in the skies the newly full-fledged members of Talon, the brothers, Grey Cloak and Dyphestive, are faced with a decision. Seeking greener pastures will surely bring about pain and suffering, but Grey Cloak wants no part of his new role in the secret dragon war. Pushing his reluctant brother to move on, the brazen youths are determined to keep their dark secret to themselves while seeking fortune of their own.
But as the mystery that surrounds the blood brothers begins to unravel, a darker fate intervenes.

Thrust into a competition against the deadliest students from around the world, Jace must lead his team of friends to victory. If he fails, all of humanity will be bound to the will of the Scaled Council.
And if the dragons don’t defeat the Empyreals, dark forces within human society just might.
The heretics have stepped up their attacks, pushing the Shadow Phoenix clan to the brink of annihilation. A conspiracy of the wealthy and powerful threatens to enslave a very special group of students. And the Inquisition has dark plans for the Eclipse Core.
And, like his core, Jace is splitting at the seams. Torn between the need to stop the Grand Design from falling into clawed talons and his quest to find his mother and the answers she carries, the young warrior must dig deep within to overcome the forces aligned against him.

Something his new dungeon fairy seems suspiciously excited about.With his favorite adventurer, Blake, slowly accepting his new powers as a Specter of Balance, Ryan learns being a darkness dungeon means a lot more than just bones, zombies, and skeletal fight club. Apparently, the power granted by God of Death encompasses much, much more.
Unfortunately, Ryan learns the hard way that some things should remain dead…

So when a dicey faction entices him with companionship, he ignores the grim warning signs.
Even as Kyril’s power grows within the group, he’s left out of the crew’s dangerous plans to derail the authorities. And when being accepted comes at the expense of making questionable choices, he fears his newfound friendships aren’t worth the deadly price.
Can Kyril master his new magic before his shady companions send him to his doom?
