For over one hundred years, women have been banned from joining the Rift Riders. No one really remembers why, or much cares, it’s just the way things are.
Or were. Because the Overworld is in trouble. The vicious kaz-naghkt are growing in strength, the dragons have hidden themselves away and humanity has only itself to turn to for help. And front and centre, the pride and protectors of the Overworld, are the Rift Riders.
With their numbers dropping and recruits become hard to find, the Riders are about to make a drastic decision – to readmit women. And standing right at the head of the line is Lady Mhysra Kilpapan, daughter of an earl, niece of the best miryhl breeder on the Overworld, and Wingborn to Cumulo.
Girl and giant eagle were born to be Rift Riders – and now, thanks to the new proclamation – they can be. But getting in is only the start of the adventure, and Mhysra, Cumulo and friends are about to discover that the Overworld is a far bigger and more dangerous place than they could ever imagine.
