The Renegade Dragon:
Though the Great Wars of Disruption have ended, the kingdom of Coronnan faces new and equally dangerous crises: a Terran-based plague begins to spread through the outlying lands; the queen’s father plots to introduce forbidden technology in exchange for the precious resources needed by his own people; and the head of the Commune of Magicians launches a campaign to gain control of all magical knowledge and power.

The Wizard’s Treasure:
Journeymen magicians Marcus and Robb have been sent on a quest by Senior Magician Jaylor to find the missing dragons of Coronnan and bring them back to the kingdom. But their quest leads to a far different discovery: an ancient treasure trove, spell-protected to trap the unwary. As the two are caught by the treasure’s spell, unable to aid Coronnan or themselves, other events are unfolding which may forever alter the course of Coronnan’s destiny.

A letter from the author, Irene Radford:

Welcome to the world where dragons are real and magic works. If you are new to the Dragon Nimbus, pull up a chair and join us as we revel in tales that have touched my heart more than anything else I’ve written under any pen name. If you are returning after an absence, I am very happy to have you back.

This is a world that began with a Christmas gift of a blown-glass dragon. The dragon sat proudly on the knick-knack shelf for several months, loved and admired, reluctantly dusted, and totally inert. Then one night at dinner, my son remarked, “You know, Mom, I think dragons are born all dark, like that little pewter dragon, then they get more silvery as they grow up until they are as clear as glass.” The dragon came to life for me.

Out of that chance remark came first one book, then three, five, seven, and finally ten. I built a career on these books and loved every minute of the process. These characters still live in my mind many years after they jumped into their stories and dragged me along with them.

Many thanks to DAW Books and my editor Sheila Gilbert for reviving The Dragon Nimbus a lucky thirteen years after they first debuted.

With these omnibus volumes, you can read about the dragons with crystal fur that directs your eye elsewhere yet defies you to look anywhere else. Wonderful dragons full of wit and wisdom. Magic abounds. Magicians and mundanes alike learn about their world and special life lessons as they explore dragon lore past and present. The books will be presented in the order in which they were written, and the order that makes the most sense of the entwined tales.

So, sit back and enjoy with me. And may reading take you soaring with Dragons.
Book 3
As war rages between the armies of Coronnan and SeLenicc, an equally desperate campaign is being fought between the Commune, which uses dragon magic, and the coven, which draws its power from an older, darker source.  With the dragons vanished from the land, the only hope of saving Coronnan, the king, and the Commune lies in finding the dragons and bringing them back.  Yet this quest will not fall to the realm’s Senior Magician. A young orphan—a powerful yet untested magician—is being called by the dragons, lured with the promise of discovering his true identity.
 
Can an untested youth venture into the heart of the enemy’s stronghold and find the means to set the dragon’s free?
Book 2
Though rogue magic has long been banned in Coronnan, the loss of dragon magic has opened the way for masters of the forbidden spells to wreak havoc on the kingdom. Only if Prince Darville can tame the forces of magic and rescue the spell-trapped princess who is fated to be his bride does he have any chance to save crown, kingdom, and the dragons.

The Dragon’s Touchstone:
Three hundred years before the time of The Glass Dragon, Coronnan is a kingdom at war with itself, magic is wild, and magicians uncontrolled, each working separately for his own goal. At the height of this age of chaos, the dragons decide to intervene, making their presence known to the mortals through the healer Myrilandel.

The Last Battlemage:
Nimbulan, the last Battlemage and the founder of the school for Communal Magic, is seeking to create a permanent protection for the kingdom of Coronnan, a spell-crafted border to keep enemies out. His search for the key to this magic leads him to terrifying discovery—the dragons, the guardians of magics, are in terrible danger.

Book 1
This brand-new omnibus is the first in a series collecting Irene Radford’s acclaimed Dragon novels.

Volume I includes the complete trilogy of The Dragon Nimbus:
The Glass Dragon, The Perfect Princess, and The Lonliest Magician

The Glass Dragon:
In a realm that has always been protected by its magicians, a kingdom whose ruler’s life and power is inextricably linked with that of the dragons, a time of crisis has arrived. Someone is killing the dragons, and as their numbers diminish, magic is fading from the kingdom of Coronnan. The kingdom’s unlikely saviors are a young wizard whose magic is completely unorthodox and an equally young witchwoman who has been befriended by the last of the dragons.

The Perfect Princess:
Though rogue magic has long been banned in Coronnan, the loss of dragon magic has opened the way for masters of these forbidden spells to wreak havoc on the kingdom. Only if Prince Darville can tame the forces of magic and rescue the spell-trapped princess who is fated to be his bride, does he have any chance to save crown, kingdom, and dragons.

The Loneliest Magician:
As war rages between the armies of Coronnan and SeLenicca, an equally desperate campaign is being fought between the Commune, which uses dragon magic, and the coven, which draws its power from an older, darker source. The only hope of saving Coronnan, the king, and the Commune lies in finding the dragons and bringing them back. A young orphan is being called by the dragons, lured with the promise of discovering his true identity. Can an untested youth venture into the heart of the enemy’s stronghold and find the means to set the dragons free?
