But the fledgling wyrme has its own guardian in the shape of the beautiful, brave and dangerous Thrace. Thrace and Micah should never mix - but the magnetism between them is strong.

“This rollicking story of love and dragons kicks off the new adventure series from the creators of The Edge Chronicles . . . Intricate drawings match the imaginative language”
“Original fantasy in an overcrowded genre can be difficult to find, but Stewart and Riddell have struck story-telling gold”
