Book 2 of the Dragonfate series. For one year, the land of Alturia has been calm. War's Peace is broken, the few remaining dragons remain in isolation, and the people are rebuilding from the devastation of the Dragon War. Even Hallen has begun to reconcile himself to the magic binding him to half-Ruby dragon Kyaza—a process aided by Kyaza's long absence.
However, Kyaza's return to Allysdale casts things into an immediate downward spiral. A bloodstained note arrives, bearing a plea for help from two of their missing friends, their only clue a rune describing the Uuren Mountains. They have no choice but to head east. As they travel, surrounded by allies whose motives are dubious at best, things grow worse. Nightmares plague Kyaza constantly, warning him that someone he loves will soon suffer a terrible death. Ancient magics swirl about him, dangerous and unknowable, bound to a fate that he has been expected to carry for more than a thousand years.
Soon Kyaza realizes that he is not alone in this trap of secrets and shadows: Aldri Cinderfrost, last heir of the Silver Dragons, is enslaved by his Dragonfate and following a course that will inevitably drag them into opposite sides of the battlefield. . . .
