Look for it in bookstores now!

Holly Lisle's acclaimed trilogy THE SECRET TEXTS is the epic adventure of heroes battling a resurrected evil that had nearly destroyed the world a millennium before. Now Holly Lisle take readers back to the days of that ancient apocalypse -- and to the decadent heart of a fantastic, doomed empire . . .

Glory of the Dragons

Based on a science of sorcery called Dragon magic, the Hars Ticlarim is a miraculous place of mansions built on clouds and gardens blooming diamonds beneath canopies of captive stars. But this incomparable beauty hides a dark core: Dragon magic draws its power from the agony of slaves who are killed for sorcerous fuel. And for three thousand years, no one has dared question the empire's inhuman cruelty . . . until now.

Wraith, a boy with an uncanny power, seeks the art to foment a revolution within the Hars Ticlarim. Solander, a brilliant young mage, believed he has discovered a totally new form of magic. Luercas, a sadistic noble, will commit any crime that furthers his ambition. All three are clever, resolute, driven -- and naive. For they challenge the rulers of a globe-spanning power that has endured for millennia -- rulers who will do anything to stay in power forever . . .
