I slipped off the back of the dragon and landed softly behind the guard. He had not expected anyone to touch down there. And so he fell.

The betrayal was beyond imagining.

And now Carmen has two things on her mind: survival and revenge. No, make that three. Because she cannot figure out exactly where she stands with the mighty dragon Brax. He is the most powerful creature she has ever had to face. And riding him is a constant, dangerous adventure.

But she better figure him out quickly. Because the emperor and his forces are hunting down her fellow assassins one by one. She's going to need all the help she can get.
