From Goodreads:

The Dragon’s Legacy (The Dragon's Legacy, #1)
"The last Aturan King is dying, and as his strength fades so does his hold on sa and ka. Control of this power is a deadly lure; the Emperor stirs in his Forbidden City to the East, while deep in the Seared Lands, the whispering voices of Eth bring secret death. Eight men and women take their first steps along the paths to war, barely realizing that their world will soon face a much greater threat; at the heart of the world, the Dragon stirs in her sleep. A warrior would become Queen, a Queen would become a monster, and a young boy plays his bird-skull flute to keep the shadows of death at bay."

From Deborah A. Wolf's website:

"A saga of epic fantasy in the tradition of the darker folkloric tales of ARABIAN NIGHTS, THE DRAGON’S LEGACY is a journey of life and loss, of hope and heartbreak, sorcerers and swords and sand:

Deep in the heart of the singing desert, Zeeranim are fading from the world. The Mothers bear few live babes, their warriors and wardens are never more than a step ahead of slavers eager to carry off children, and the vash’ai, the great cats who have called the people kithren for as long as there have been stories, choose to bond with fewer warriors each year.

Now the sorcerous Dragon King in Atualon has stretched forth his hand to take one of their own, claiming young Sulema as his daughter. For the king is dying without an heir, and as he fades so does his hold on atulfah, the magic that sings the dragon to sleep.

Far beneath the world’s heavy shell Sajani Earth Dragon slumbers on, as she has since the beginning of song. Her sleep is fitful, her dreams troubled. Akari Sun Dragon sings a song of life and love, but from deep in the darkness of her dream come whispers of war, and of death.

For the shadows conceal dark truths: there are those who wish to keep the dragon trapped in endless sleep, regardless of the cost; those who would tap her power over time and space for their own; and those who would have her wake, so they might laugh as the world burns."

I really don't know much about this book - which is also the first in a new saga - or what to expect, but I am super intrigued by its description and think this sounds amazing. I also think that cover is completely badass, as I am a huge sucker for dragons! Let April arrive already!
