Clarke's Third Law, that any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic, Dragon's Vale takes you into a world that is both ancient and set far, far away in time. Dominated by the powers of a science that has become magical where beings we would call Men, Elves, Dwarves, Mages, Orcs and more Dragon's Vale is mysterious and eternal power that works to alter the destiny of this world. The Dragon's Vale series begins with "The Book" but may unfold in other stores and notes from the author Michael Bond with ambitions to explore this world and its vast history through the adventures and sagas of a few of its many people and places.
