She had been raised to fight, but one decision will threaten the only life she knows.

Alexa is a warrior and she is destined to be one of the leaders in the village. Her life is full of training while she watches the skies for the threat of dragons.

When the dragons attack, wiping out most of the elders, Alexa swears that she is going to end the long-running feud once and for all. She makes a plan but her best-friend isn't going to let her face it alone.

With Zen at her side, Alexa discovers that life outside the village is very different. The closer they get to the mountains, the more they learn about the dragons and the burden they carry. Despite all this, Alexa is steadfast in one thing: the dragons must die.

Alexa soon has to face the unimaginable and risk breaking her heart to save them all.
