What would you do if a dragon fell from the sky? Dragons don’t exist, and if they did, they certainly don’t fall from the sky. Or do they? Claire Evans is a small-towner from Indiana faced with this exact situation. When a dragon crash-lands in her corn field, she goes gallivanting off to rescue it.
This incident triggers a chain of events that sweep our heroine into a complicated plot to destroy the kingdom of Dragonwall. Dragonwall is a kingdom unlike any other, with brooding dragons that can turn into men, Sprites who hide within magical forests, greedy Gobelins, and so much more. Lurking in the coldest reaches is a powerful sorcerer whose only desire is to bring about a past long forgotten, a past that favors those of magical blood and condemns those who are not worthy. To achieve these means, he would annihilate an entire species.
Claire finds herself thrust into an old-fashioned world similar to those she's grown up reading about, one of fantasy, politics, and intrigue. A lifetime of books hardly prepared her for what is to come. She must face unimaginable difficulties, and in so doing, discover secrets about herself. All the while, there is one obstacle that stands in her way: the King of Dragonwall. Claire needs him on her side if she is to succeed. Can she show him the truth and earn his trust?
The King of Dragonwall is not like those before him. Troubled and temperamental, he is scarred by more than the events that shaped him. Worst of all, he is mateless. With no queen and no heir, his subjects are demanding he abandon tradition and marry into nobility. But with the rising threats upon his borders, Gobelin unrest to the east, and talk of an even darker terror to the north, he will soon have far greater problems than that of finding a wife…
