Since Queen Karigan's death, the dragon ryders and their dragons have been labeled traitors. Bearing the burden of a crime they did not commit, Shogun and his dragon, Zeima, flee for their lives. They take refuge inside the Forest of Ferrês just as they are on the verge of collapsing from exhaustion. Once mighty hunters, they are now the prey.
Death takes on the face of a dark figure stalking them from the shadows. Will Shogun survive facing the greatest evil the world will ever know?
What is a ryder without a dragon—is he even a ryder anymore? Find out in this 8th installment of the Tales of Ferrês story series.
