Doughall Maxton heads into the unknown, rocky terrain west of his clan home in search of his brother, Seumas, who is a scholar coerced into traveling by a silver-tongued herald. Needing to be certain he remains well, Doughall uses his tracking skills to follow him. He finds a massive burned out area and tracks he’s never before seen. Following the strange markings, he comes to a river crossing and stumbles upon a blue…dragon. Doughall does what any warrior would do. He attacks. The beast traps him, but doesn’t kill him. Instead, he talks, calling himself Simeon, and offers his aid. What the dragon wants in return shocks Doughall, but he’s not completely opposed to the beast’s desires. Still, Simeon is a dragon, a creature Doughall had never known existed. Could he be trusted?
