Dragons Unremembered: Volume I of The Carandir Saga
David A. Wimsett, author
Baras they named him, the dragon who betrayed all. Subdued, he lay under a spell woven eons before by the magical crown of the monarchy of Carandir. Once, he could have swept aside the enchanted threads when he vied for control of the world with an army of sorcerers named the Barasha, the servants of baras, along with discontented dragons and demons. In his sleep, Baras dreams of what might have been. The visions fill him with hatred of all things that walk alive beneath the sun, for he will never know such again. At the same time, rage consumes him for all things that die and so depart this world, for that escape is not his to have. Most of all, they fill him with a seething hunger for vengeance against Carandir and all its people. Endlessly the dreams weave, until a voice comes to him; one he should not be able to hear, for the wizards said they were all destroyed. From beyond the fog, a servant calls, “Master. The time has come.” As the Barasha secretly plot to release Baras, rival baronies, unaware of a threat that would consume them all, threaten civil war. Among those drawn into these webs are twin brothers Prince Ryckair and Prince Craya, one of whom is heir to the crown, though which will not be known until the brothers reach the age of twenty, and Mirjel, daughter of a powerful baron who is bound by decree to marry the brother who becomes king. Dragons Unremembered is the first volume of The Carandir Saga, a tale filled with magic, dragons, wizards, sorcerers, fantastic beasts, battles and political intrigue. Set in an immersive world peopled with character of different genders, colors and ethnicities, there are unique cultures, lost legends, forgotten lands, poetry and music.
