Realms of the Dragons

Raging dragons threaten to destroy civilization on Faerûn, but that hasn't always been the case. There have been times when humans and dragons have worked together to preserve life and combat evil.

Of course, that doesn't happen very often. Most of the time, they just try to kill each other and steal as much treasure as they can in the process.

This collection of all new stories by Forgotten Realms creator Ed Greenwood; New York Times best-selling authors Elaine Cunningham, Richard Baker, Lisa Smedman, and R. A. Salvatore; The Year of Rogue Dragons author Richard Lee Byers; and many more, bring the myriad sides of the dragons of Faerûn to life.

The Year of Rogue Dragons has only just begun, but the history of that powerful race of enchanted creatures is long, frightening, and beautiful indeed.

Realms of the Dragons 2

Realms rise and fall, human lives tick by like seconds on a clock, and the dragons watch from on high. But when the mighty wyrms lose their minds, when they succumb to their basest, most violent impulses, time stands still.

From the far corners of Faerûn, from the skies above and the pits below, from the imaginations of the next generation of fantasy masters, come tales of dragons good and evil.
