The ancient dragon-who existed eons before the written word-emerges as the only shape capable of containing the massive weight of the migrating souls and spirits converging for the ultimate contest. With the help of the Companions and their Concubines, the immensely gifted former Performer, Ruby, and her forever mate try to bear their progeny into a world where a powerful Trickster would see them fail.
The Companions, guided by the everlasting but elusive deities become allies in the quest to bring forth a new and viable race. The dragon twins themselves will be either the beginning or the end. Life is a cycle. Paradise and Hell are merely a dimension apart.
