For centuries, dragons and half-dragons have hidden themselves away, bound by a treaty that forbids them to reveal their existence to the human public. But now, on the outskirts of Philadelphia, that ancient peace is coming unraveled. And the world will never be the same. Isis Va is more than a millenium old, powerful, and founder of the Red Glade. Some people believe her to be a goddess. She'd really rather they didn't. Isis's daughter Ezri has been trained to heal, but she still knows violence better than anything else. When the two Red Glade women meet the Darkhan army, their cultures collide. They butt heads on questions small and fundamental alike. Whether it's succeeding in helping the Darkhnit prepare for war, or merely hurting all involved, Isis doesn't know.That question won't be answered until they must join forces to face the threat of Nash, his army of Movrekt half-dragons, and all of the machinations he has set in place to keep the world in chaos, and himself at the head.

Wandering to the furthest reaches of the islands, he finds an undeciphered standing stone north of Aberdeen and follows the first footsteps on the edge of a long-lost Ice Age land in the North Sea.As Canton walks the modern terrain, slowly understanding the ancient signs that lie within and beneath it, he weaves a gentle tale of discovery, showing how, beyond the superficial differences of life-style and culture, the ancient inhabitants of the British Isles were much closer to the present-day one than we might imagine.
