Rise of the Blood Masters is the fifth book in the Dragon Stones Saga and the second book of the Chronicles of Tallin trilogy. This book was released on September 30, 2014. 

Tallin and Duskeye resume their journey through Durn, searching for ways to save the dragons from extinction, with the help of Tallin's wise and magically-adept aunt, Mugla. Promising discoveries have been made and alliances forges, but the threat of Balbor, a country ruled by a tyrannical High Priest, has become too great to ignore. Meanwhile, the dwarves have their own troubles, overrun and chased from their home by invading Orcs, vestiges of the former emperor's forces. A looming threat and ever-entangled connection between the two grows, with Skera-Kina at the heart of it at every turn. In the midst of the growing tensions and instability, Tallin will be faced with an ugly truth about his family, Balbor's violent history, and just what is required of him if he wishes to save the dragons. 

This book is preceded by The Balborite Curse and is followed by Kathir's Redemption, which was released in February 2015 and concludes the trilogy.
