Got at a library book sale. To share.

The dragons Earth, Water, Fire and Air were raised from the elemental energies at time's beginning to create the World. When they finished their task, they were supposed to sleep until World's End. But long before that time the dragons began to wake....

Now Earth and Water and their human guides, Erde and N'Doch, have been drawn through time to a devastated future America where the dragon guide Paia has been transformed into his high priestess. Yet it is not Fire who has summoned his brother and sister. The call has come from another, and the reason is all too clear. Fire has chosen to become a god instead of a guardian. And the dragon Air is nowhere to be found. Can Earth and Water, Erde and N'Doch force Fire and Paia back to the path they are fate to follow? Can they find and rescue Air? Or will Fire's rebellion doom both the dragons and the world they guard?

This set of post-apocalyptic cultures were my favorite setting in the series, and really helped recapture my interest. I suspect part of it was having more room to expand on it, since this book is about 200 pages longer than the previous ones, but the author also seemed to do a better job of showing, rather than telling via info dump monologues, the effects of the time and cult-like environment Paia is living in. Despite the extra length, the pacing improved.

Having a larger cast of characters to play off each other lets them develop further, and it is nice to see some of the changes as our characters mature and learn more about their mission, the changing world, and time periods they are in. Most of the side characters here feel like they are really just here to move along the plot, but I found a lot of them enjoyable anyway.
