Kait Drake never considered himself to be anything special, and neither did anyone else. All of that changed, however, the day he met Brath, a dragon recently gone rogue as a result of his rider’s tragic death. At first, the two are mortally set against one another, and Kait, after barely surviving an attack by the Rogue, sets off to warn the Dragonknight- The legendary keeper of the Conlith Avalayna and defenders against the fierce and mysterious Shadowdragons-Of the rogue’s return to the islands.|
When, in tragic turns of events, however, his abusive father kills Kait’s mother, the only person he ever cared for, everything in the boy’s world is turned on end. Rather than opposing Brath, he finds himself an ally of the beast, questing for revenge against those that wronged him, and, through oaths of blood, he discovers an aspect of the relationship between men and dragons long forgotten… The power of the Dragonblood. Made more Dragon that boy by the mingling of Brath’s blood with his own, Kait sets off, guided by the rogue, on a bloody and perilous conquest to fulfill the ancient prophecy of a long dead tyrant, to become Draca’s Heir, and unite the Rogues against a world that seeks to destroy them.
So it is that he finds himself set against the people he once revered, the Dragonknights. As casualties mount, and the tension between the Rogues and the Dragonknights continue to grow, Kait finds himself faced with a moral dilemma, to stand with the Rogues, who need him to remain united, or to end the war he unwittingly began before it can destroy the only defense that stands between and unguarded world and the bloodthirsty Shadowdragons. Either way, he must deice, before his hesitance costs him his very soul.
