Publisher's Summary

"Killing a man isn't an easy thing to live with, no matter the cause."

Erik Tarverro is a skilled blacksmith, a better swordsman—and hated for his mixed aeradi parentage. Denied mastery of his craft in the human city he grew up in, he accepts a risky contract from a dangerous stranger.

With new enemies at his heels, he leaps at the chance to join his father's people in the sky city of Newport. Despite his human blood, he finds his place among the aeradi: heir to an ancient noble family.

His duty leads him to sailing the skies and learning what it means to lead soldiers. But Erik's enemies will have blood, and the peace between his people and the Draconan dragon riders is like a powder keg. All it would take is one spark—and dragons will fly on his newfound city in the sky.

it's hard to get invested in "perfect" characters

It's hard to root for a character whose primary traits is that he is good at everything and is lucky beyond reason. An expert blacksmith, fighter, politician, commander. Lucks into his role as chief good guy, lucks out of attack after attack on his life, lucks into the right place at the right time.

The setting does make up for it a little, but a character who never fails at anything and retains the moral high ground is just boring

A Glynn Stewart clasic brought to life by Furlong

Although you can tell this is one of Glynn's earlier works, the story is still fantastic. The narration by Gary breaths life into these characters as no other could.

An old favourite.

One of Glynn Stewart's early books which I am very happy to find is now in audio format. I only hope enough people enjoy it which will encourage him to write a sequel, if not a series.
Narration by Gary Furlong was excellent.
I will happily listen to this again.
