Trailblazer. Role model. Troublemaker.


Jin wants none of these labels, but she knows as the first female dragonrider in the Tang empire, there’s little chance of escaping them. Especially as she has secretly broken one of the oldest taboos of dragonriding: she is blood bonded to her jade dragon, Rayshan.

But when her wing is sent to the kingdom of Khitan to hunt down the empire’s most feared dragon, Baikalan, her reputation will be the least of her concerns. For Jin discovers a plot far more insidious than any of them had anticipated, one that will threaten the empire itself and pit her against a formidable enemy only she can defeat. But at what cost? And when Rayshan manifests his gift, an unexpected and rare dark power, will it be the key to their salvation, or the end of Jin and everyone she loves?
