Shianna finds a tiny wounded dragon in the woods. To save its life, she must travel to Tremada, a world ruled by dragons and gnomes. Much to Shianna's surprise, the dragon Azdar turns out to be king of Tremada. Here she becomes embroiled in a battle to the death when she unwittingly befriends the enslaved gnomes who believe her to be their saviour. Torn between loyalty to Azdar and her belief in justice, Shianna must choose a side. To add to the complications, Karelle, Azdar's egg-sister, will stop at nothing to topple her brother and rise to the throne. This fantasy from a new and exciting author is as much a journey of self-discovery as an exotic adventure, full of intrigue, a bloody battle, and the ultimate compromise.
