In a world where dragons are considered demons and Dragonriders are hunted and killed as witches...
A devout village-girl, Silmavalien, meets a dragon hatchling and discovers a love she could never have dreamed. At the same time, her world is ripped apart as she discovers the gods she has worshipped and everything she has ever been taught or believed is a monstrous lie. Not knowing what to believe - or even if she can trust her engaged, Noren, with her new secret - she must find a way to care for herself and her dragon, Minth, in a wild and hostile world, a world which only grows stranger as the days pass.
Raina Nightingale is the author of Knights of the Promise, first in the Kaarathlon Series, and DragonBirth, first in the Return of the Dragonriders Trilogy, with more coming in both series.
