After setting out to avenge the murder of her father, a young woman with a mysterious connection to dragons finds herself caught up in a deadly struggle for power and must embark upon a dangerous journey to save herself and her kingdom. "engaging" -- Publishers Weekly (starred review). "riveting" -- Kirkus Reviews
Erynn Taylor was fourteen when she witnessed the brutal murder of her father. She should be dead, too, she knew that. But a reclusive golden dragon swooped down upon the scene—scattering her attackers and sparing her life, but ultimately denying her justice.
Two years later, Erynn’s attackers ride boldly into her kingdom for a visit with her king. But her elation at the nearness of justice turns to anger and then fear as she learns there is more to this visit than meets the eye—a conspiracy that threatens the entire kingdom—and that it just might bring her the death she so narrowly avoided. Erynn wants justice…but does she want it badly enough to die?
When the mystery of her own past makes her a target, Erynn flees the castle where she has lived since her father’s murder—setting off a manhunt that can only end in bloodshed. The question is, whose blood will be spilled?
