Filled with heroes and heroines and spanning locales of exotic adventure in a magic-forged world, the Dragonships of Vindras series fully illustrates the mastery of world-building and storytelling that has made Weis and Hickman into the bestselling fantasy co-authors of all time.
In Bones of the Dragon, Skylan Ivorson is a sea-raider of the Vindras and eventually becomes the Chief of Chiefs of all Vindras clans, an honor he truly feels he deserves as one who has been blessed by Skoval, the god of war.
But sometimes a blessing is a curse in disguise.
Skoval and the other ancient gods are under siege from a new generation of gods who are challenging them for the powers of creation... and the only way to stop these brash interlopers lies within the mysterious and hidden Five Bones of the Vektan Dragons.
It will be up to the Vindras people, as the dragon-goddess's champions, to undertake the quest to recover all Five. The fate of the Old Gods and the Vindras rests on their recovery--for this is not only a quest to save the world. It is also a quest for redemption.
Welcome to the World of Dragonships!

Hickman and Weis's new fantasy series evokes memories of Norse mythology. The gods are battling, and the fate of the Vindras gods lies in the hands of the younger generation, which is off to a bumbling start. The five sacred hidden bones of the Vektan dragons must be found and protected from interlopers in order to preserve the Vindras' way of life and independence. Stefan Rudnicki brings the characters vividly to life. He speaks with the voice of authority and sounds as if he's reciting the oral history of the Vindras. Consistent with the warrior mentality of the Vindras, Rudnicki adopts a firm tone with an undercurrent of restrained violence that is briefly lifted from time to time for sporadic moments of tenderness.
