Damaeris Timberlyn has boarded the back of a silver drake and disappeared into the mists off the seaside cliffs of the Larramis Peninsula. The dragon takes her to a place mentioned only in legend, a place known as the Dragon Continent. Once there, she becomes part of a strategic agenda developed to combat the degethozak raids prevalent across central Ansalar, a plan that will make her a skilled dragonrider in her own right. While Tallachienan departs to find Aeris and bring her home, the rest of the group continues their journey to the faelin realm of Elvandahar, certain they will find sanctuary there. Joneselia Mondemer, princess of Karlisle, doesn't share the sentiment. With their kingdoms at war, she will surely be used as a bartering tool the moment Elvandaharian warriors realize her identity. She has no choice but to leave her comrades behind and forge her own path, one that will lead her back to the dangerous place she had barely escaped a year before. At her side rides Tigerius Solanar. He feels an unnatural pull to the west, one that leads into the unknown. But for a while at least, he can travel at the side of a friend. Within the space of a single moon cycle, the group has become severely fractured. The world is fraught with peril; how will they face such adversity if they are so far apart? Even more, how will they overcome it?
