For anyone but the youngest son of the Clan Chief, slaying the fiercest flying beast on the twelve planets would be an impressive task. Not for Dras'unat. He must do so using a temperamental flying chariot from a long-dead race. But that won't stop him. He will prevail. He will take his rightful place... unless the beast, or the chariot, kills him first.
