Tylya Lansing is an average eighteen-year-old with one exception—her ultimate goal is to learn the Secrets of the Ways and become a Keeper of Dragons, but first, she must find a crystal scepter that has been lost for decades in a rugged Sierra Nevada canyon. If the powerful myra crystal has not been shattered then she may get the chance to travel to her grandmother’s homeworld of Lantamyra—a world ruled by dragons who know the Secrets of the Ways and how to access the power of the crystals.
She has heard stories of Lantamyra from her grandparents since she was a little girl and always assumed these were just fantasies to entertain her. When her father dies in a rockslide while looking for the scepter, she asks her grandmother for the truth. Lenora tells her that the scepter is a device that can open a doorway to Lantamyra, but she must keep it a secret. No one can know—not her boyfriend Josh, or more importantly her mother, a no-nonsense businesswoman who does not know Lenora Lansing’s origins.
Josh assumes that Tylya is looking for gold and worries about her being in the canyon by herself, so he accompanies her on the day that she finds the scepter. With no way to hide the device, she tells him the truth and enlists his help with the preparations to return her grandmother to Lantamyra. When she tells him that she intends to go too, he is devastated. Trying to talk her out of it does not work, so he secretly devises a plan to go with her.
After arriving on Lantamyra, Tylya is summoned to audience with Queen Gaia Jade and requests to enter the training to become a keeper. She knows that the Labor of Ways will be difficult, and the mind link with the crystals could be dangerous, but she will come close to death and sacrifice much before she becomes a Keeper of Dragons.
