Dragon Wing volume one of the Death Gate Cycle
Dragon Wing volume one of the Death Gate Cycle Author:Margaret Weis & Tracy Hickman Ages ago, sorcerers of unmatched power sundered a world into four realms-sky, stone, fire, and sea--then vanished. Over time the magic weakened. Magicians learned to work spells only in their own realms and forgot the others. Now only those few who have survived the Labyrinth and traversed the Death Gate know of the presence of all four realms..... more ».and even they have not unraveled all the mysteries of their severed world.
Dragon Wing is the tale of Arianus, the Realm of Sky---a world of airbone islands where humans, elves, and dwarves battle for control of precious water. In this war, one human assassin know as Hugh the Hand ignores all boundaries in his deadly travels. When the Hand agrees to assassinate a king's son, he does not expect the unusually likable child prince who is to be his victim. Nor is he prepared for Prince Bane's servant, who seems to know more than his share about magic...and the world. And when the Hand's dragonship wrecks in the realm of the dwarves amidst a revolution, he begins to question his assignment. But when he finds himself in the company of a man even more secretive than himself, Hugh finally realizes there is much more at stake than the life of a chile...and perhaps more than the fate of a world.« less
