A fire-breathing dragon and a traitorous female dragonrider nearly burned two kingdoms to ash. Now, any such “demonic” acts are subject to the new king and his witch hunters. Kira, a girl restrained by the new Order and her king father who commands it, wishes to shred the restriction against female riders. She yearns to be chosen, and her last remaining hope is the dangerous notion that courage matters more than Order.
When Solon hatches, he is barely recognizable as a dragon. His body is twisted by the markers of a disease believed ended after the Traitor’s War, twisted but not broken. He can fly. When the crowd mocks him, that’s exactly what he chooses to do, landing beside Kira. She is chosen.
Labeled more nursemaid than rider and awaiting final judgment of Solon’s fate, Kira and Solon have less than a season to prove he’s not infected, and she should be permitted to truly ride. But riding in defense of the kingdom’s people takes on a far different meaning when they discover the real purpose of the Order is to burn accused witches alive.
