The Daughter of Prophecy has joined with her Regalta. Jarvis's ships have conquered the lands of men. Now the islands of men are enshrouded in darkness stunting the growth of plants and animals. Supplies flow from Jarvis's islands, but are they safe? Monsters fill the villages and cities. Are they mutated cannibals of the once peaceful fishermen?
Meanwhile in the land of the syln, Jarvis launches an attack on their biggest food producing island. His new allies pour in, ones that are immune to syln magic. Jarvis struggles to deal with the implications of these supernatural beings.
Can Levet turn the tide against the dragons, or is she hampered by crippling headaches every time she has to defend herself?
Cindar lays eggs by the dozens and already the islands are filled with new terrors. Dragons are appearing on all islands, harassing their defenders or learning from the citizens.

A queen must fight to save her people but from the inside. When the story opens, Queen Beverlea is in hiding from Jarvis and his men, who have conquered her land. What remains of her family are forced into seclusion, and Beverlea flees, taking a position as a baker in a brothel so that she can be close to her people. Meanwhile, the Prophetess Levet is getting news of what is going on in the different lands as she and her fellow travelers speculate on who will take sides and where. GREEN TUNICS OF NOON reads much like a feudal era story but rife with magic, fantasy, and dragons. But things are amiss. The sun is gone. The humans and animals are changing. The dead are restless. Shamblers seek out the regulars. No one is safe.
I love fantasy sagas. The world-building is intriguing and Ms. Osborne has given us some strong female characters that I always enjoy and her scenic descriptions made it easy to picture what was going on. However, for me, this wasn't an easy read. It's a dense story with a tremendous amount going on and I found myself having to go back and re-read sections when I felt like I'd missed something and that inability to immerse myself in the story was distracting for me (but that may not be the case for others).
Victoria Lynn Osborne's GREEN TUNICS OF NOON is book 2 of The Great Wyrm Saga, and while I didn't read book 1 and didn't have any difficulty understanding what was going on, it does lay the groundwork for this multi-book saga.
