Shy realizes that she is lucky to be taken in by her grandparents after her father dies - but life above an antique store in Slade's Corners, Wisconsin, is not exactly where a teenage girl wants to be. One day while going through boxes of her father's boyhood stuff, Shy comes upon a rare old set of dragon puzzles...all of which are missing pieces. Her grandmother recalls the fantastic tales Shy's father would tell about his travels to lands of dragons and adventure. She always thought that these fantasies were inspired by the dragon puzzles Shy has found. Shy realizes that by mixing and matching the different sets she can complete a dragon puzzle that combines all of the others. Upon doing so she is whisked away to ancient Babylon, where she must continue the duties of her father's legacy as a servant to the dragon, and a saviour of the world.
