"Lord Regent Geder Palliako's great war has spilled across the world, nation after nation falling before the ancient priesthood and the weapon of dragons. But even as conquest follows conquest, the final victory retreats before him like a mirage. Schism and revolt begin to erode the foundations of the empire, and the great conquest threatens to collapse into a permanent war of all against all. In Carse, with armies on all borders, Cithrin bel Sarcour, Marcus Wester, and Clara Kalliam are faced with the impossible task of bringing a lasting peace to the world. Their tools: traitors high in the imperial army, the last survivor of the dragon empire, and a financial scheme that is either a revolution or the greatest fraud in the history of the world"-- Provided by publisher.

I accidentally picked this up not noticing that it was the 5th and final book of a series, and I still found it engrossing. I think I'll go back and pick up Abraham's earlier stuff.

A conclusion to the popular series finds Cithrin, Marcus and Clara using spies, a survivor and a financial scheme to secure a lasting peace in their war-decimated world as the nation of Carse is surrounded by the armies of Lord Regent Geder Palliako.
