Only one in a generation will be Warrior of Sky, right hand to the dragon god. I never wanted the power or responsibility, but he still picked me. To defy my dragon means death, so I must juggle duty and morality to stay alive.
But when Hale, Warrior of Water, prevents me from carrying out my dragon’s latest orders, everything changes.
Hale is everything my world is not. He’s light in darkness. He’s kind and forgiving, compassionate and understanding. Even more, he pushes me to discard everything I’ve ever known for a life I’d never considered possible.
To surrender and let him in is to spit in the face of everything my people stand for. Giving in to my desire will ensure my punishment.
How long can I fight when all I want to do is submit?
