Aldric too was an honourable man, not only as the Albans defined the word, but also as the Prokrator himself regarded it. That made him deadly dangerous, a whetted blade poised and ready to fall. But where? On his captors? Or on the king who had betrayed him?
In the service of the crook-shouldered King Rynert, Aldric has been dishonoured and sold into the Drusalan Empire in an example of Machiavellian statecraft.
Here in the hated Empire, he lies at the mercy of those who have loathed him and all he stands for, for generations.
But Aldric is a High-Clan Lord, skilled in the art of the sword, a scholar and an expert in Art Matic, a warrior who has seen the best and seen the worst.
And even in the Drusalan Empire there are allies which include Ymareth, The Dragon.
The Dragon Lord is a gripping epic fantasy adventure from renowned author Peter Morwood. It is the third of the Book of Years Series.

“A tale heavy with menace and brilliantly thought out.” Liverpool Daily Post
