He goes on to win his freedom by acquiring the skills of a great warrior and weaving special form of magic with it. Tiger becomes a legend and gets the name of a sword-dancer.

After the ritual training of Del gets completed and she becomes able to control her special magic, Del travels south to search for her younger brother, who was stolen from her five years ago. When Del faces the challenges of the real world, she realizes that she is not trained enough to master the unknown dangers.

The trails that he follows during his search for the hounds lead him into Ysaa-den. Unknown to Tiger, the place is filled with deadlier perils than he can imagine. These perils pose much greater danger than the hounds.

While Ysaa-den, Tiger is hailed as the warrior who has come to put a stop to the forces that have been wreaking destruction and causing havoc on the innocent villagers. And the biggest of all the destructive forces is believed to be a dragon that they think possesses unimaginable strength. After a while, Tiger gets involved in trailing the dragon and the hounds, resulting in the intertwining of his desperate search. In order to halt the destructive forces completely and hunt the hounds all on his own, Tiger decides to climb a mountain located in a place called Dragon’s Lair. This decision comes after Tiger sees no other way of finishing the missions he has taken in his hand. At Dragon’s Lair, Tiger faces a huge challenge that might prove to be beyond the skills of a master of Southern & Northern sword-magic. In spite of knowing all the dangers, Tiger moves ahead with his plan and faces Chosa Dei’s challenge. Chosa Dei is believed to have the legacy of being a powerful force that can unmake all the forces that come to oppose him. Tiger engages in the challenge to test his skills and try to defeat Chosa Dei.

    Just finished book 3 of Karavans. Since this is NOT a trilogy, will there ever be a fourth book? It does say that Dragon Moon is coming soon from DAW books, after all, and that was, what, ten years ago?
