I'm glad you're liking the series! And no, you haven't missed anything. Essentially, the Erin Elalese are a people in exile, and the relevance of that will become more apparent in the next book, Red Tide.

Incidentally, if you're interested, I have a short story up at Tor.com featuring Luker from When the Heavens Fall. It's called "There's a Devil Watching Over You" and it has it's own page here on Goodreads. If you look up my profile, you should see a link to it.(less)

Dragon Hunters by Marc Turner
“As it happens I’ve spent a night and a day going through your records. Fascinating stuff.” Kempis took a roll of parchment from his cloak and tossed it onto the desk. “You know what really bugs me?” Enli steepled his hands. “I’m on tenterhooks.” “Anolamies.” “Anomalies?” “Them too.”
