Book Description

For the first time ever, Keriya Soulstar is truly happy. She’s a hero among the Galantrians; she’s been reunited with her dragon, Thorion; she’s even daring to think she’s found a place she can call home. Things are good.


Unfortunately, things beyond the towering walls of Irongarde are most definitely not good. The Allentrian states are still gearing up for war, and when a surprise attack reveals that Thorion is sick, Keriya’s happy life crumbles apart.


In a race against time, Keriya and her allies must delve into the past if they want to save her dragon’s future. And as she uncovers unpleasant secrets about the dragons’ role in the first great war against the Shadow, she realizes her battle has only just begun.
