Hey, everyone! Great news: Sarah Ash's newest novel "The Flood Dragon's Sacrifice" is now available on kindle! -->…

The official synopsis: "Two rival clans. Two sacred pearls, the Tide Jewels, that can summon the Tide Dragons to protect the empire.

Two young men, Kaito and Naoki, one a Black Crane healer, the other a Red Kite shinobi, are sucked into an ancient, unresolved conflict between the gods of land and sea, when the exiled Red Kites steal the Tide Jewels and re-ignite a bitter clan war. Kaito must find a way to restore the emperor’s jewels – but how can it be done without betraying his own clan or angering the gods?"

@_____@ Wahhhhh *Getting drawn in* Any specific book you recommend for first read?

Well, my absolute favorite of her books is "Songspinners". It's a masterpiece, and if you don't like it, you probably wont fancy any of her other novels.

However, the first books I read by her were the Tears of Artamon trilogy: 1.) Lord of Snow and Shadows 2.) Prisoner of the Iron Tower 3.) Children of the Serpent Gate.These are what got me hooked on her books.

The trilogy was published in the US and will be much easier to find than Songspinners (Songspinners was published in the UK.) You could order the Tears of Artamon trilogy at a Borders. For Songspinners, you would have to buy it used online off Amazon. I did get one of my friends in Japan to order Songspinners recently, though, and she agreed with me: that it was very worth working and waiting for :D

I would say read Songspinners, then the Tears of Artamon Trilogy, then the 2 Alchymist's Legacy books. :D But if you have trouble getting ahold of Songspinners, start with the trilogy.

Man! I went to the library today to try an find these books but they didn't have any of them. I'm going to try some local bookstores next. Might have to order online.

I know that I had to special order one of the Tears of Artamon books but some I found used online for fairly cheap (amazon marketplace is my homeboy)! Don't give up! :shakefist:
