Princess Azmei died for her country three years ago–or so everyone but a trusted few believed. Having survived assassination attempts, the desert, dragons, and a treacherous plot designed to destroy her entire family, Azmei has finally managed to save her kingdom.
Now she has to save the world.
Azmei travels to Amethir, whose prince she promised three years ago to marry. With her is Hawk, the man who loves her, and Yar, the Voice of Dragons. They carry a terrifying message for the king of Amethir: the gods are waking and the world is about to shake.
Prince Vistaren of Amethir has also received a frightening warning, this one from a powerful stormwitch–weather magic is failing. Patterns of storms are beginning to build outside their prescribed season. While the Stormwitch Academy officially denies any problems, there are hints of trouble yet to come.
Azmei and Vistaren know they must act. But the king refuses to listen to them and the land is beginning to tear itself apart. Facing pirate attacks, seadragon swarms, and a strange woman who uses magic in a way no stormwitch should, Vistaren and Azmei know they must find a way to set things right.
But what price is too high to save the world?
The Weather War continues the story of Princess Azmei of Tamnen and Prince Vistaren of Amethir that was begun in Stormsinger and continued in Stormshadow and Stormseer. Reunite with favorite characters Yar, Voice of Dragons, pirate captain Arama Dzornaea, stormwitches Lijka and Kinnet Ardelis, and General Lozarr Algot. Meet new characters along the way: Count Kedar Ebb, stormwitch Eldry Karayan, and The Scavenger–a mysterious old man who talks to the gods!
The Weather War will be followed by Witchery’s End, projected to be the last of the 5-book Storms in Amethir series.
