YOUNG ADULT FANTASY
If my father finds out I’m secretly raising a dragon, he’ll kill it. Thank the gods for my brother’s help. In the same breath, curse him for sticking by me as I likely dig our graves deeper with each desperate decision.
My name is Mirren, and until now, my greatest ambition has been to stay clear of our father’s temper as best I can. But all that’s changed with my dragon’s life on the line. I only have one option to keep her from starving to death...
Desperate choices must be made with the approaching Seventh Year Trials — a deadly dragon riding competition for the nation’s wealthiest youth. But I’m a far cry from a member of the elite, and a vindictive ex-noble is determined to win at any cost in a game all his own.
The charming son of a lord seems to see potential in my dragon and I, but I can’t help but wonder if it’s genuine. I’m dying to hope. But the risks are quickly outweighing the reward as the Trial’s dark history rears its head. And I’m in too deep to turn back now...

Assassinations are in motion, cities falling, and the nation's most barbaric war criminal has been unleashed astride the White Dragon, leaving no person or dragon safe...
