As a child, Asha’s mother told her ancient, forbidden stories – and the telling of them killed her. Later Asha repeated those stories, and summoned an ancient dragon which almost destroyed her city, leaving Asha horribly scarred. Older now, and a dragon-slayer, she may have a way to both atone for the deaths she caused and to escape an arranged marriage. Her father will free her, in exchange for the head of kovu, the ancient dragon. And the only obstacle in her path is a defiant slave-boy . . .
