Anna Dyer, dragon squire of House Dradón, has dreamed of one thing her entire life: having her own dragon. Like her father and mother before her — like all dragon riders of Dávanor — she can think of no greater joy than joining with a dragon, training for war, and waging battle for truth and honor in the sky. Anna expects to wait a long time for her dream to be real, but when a dragon foal is born blind on the same day that Dragon Master Khondus uncovers a treasonous plot that threatens the heart of House Dradón, Anna and her blind dragon become the only ones that can save their High House and protect the world of Dávanor from open war.
Peter Valerianos Fane served in the Silver Legion’s artillery corps for over forty years, rising to the rank of Peer Colonel under High Lords Bellános and Dorómy Dallanar. His most well-known actions took place on Colodóx, Batládea, and Ebum – all in the service of the High House of Remain. In retirement, Colonel Fane spends the majority of his time on the great library world of Genonea, where he lectures on military theory, ancient Davanórian war poetry, and moral philosophy. He winters at his clan’s hereditary estate on Egáton with his wife, his family, and a small flock of messenger dragons.
