A dragon’s trust. A clan divided. A god’s command.
Half-elf Oracle Aviana must complete an impossible task—unify her broken clan. Fractured during conflicts centuries before her time, they’ve lost their ways, causing Aviana’s existence, once seen as sacred, to be a living hell. At twenty years of age, and now an adult according to their customs, all she wants now is for them to see her as worth more than her blood. And the dragon god, Akorith, has just the plan.
A connection since birth to the mighty entity, his whispers have followed her dreams, speaking of an era long forgotten—one he needs her to revive, or a great darkness will consume all. To do so, she’ll have to complete a task her mother started before her disappearance: gain the trust of two dragons who now see her as the enemy.
Only problem? She’s not permitted to leave the clan’s territory. Any movement outside of town and she’s monitored. And such a task, even from a god, would be seen as treasonous. To make her task even harder, her mixed-blood nature begins altering her physical appearance, ensuring she’ll gain more enemies than allies if she doesn’t learn to conceal or control it.
And when she finally meets these two dragons, ones her mother had come to care for greatly, Aviana must make the most difficult choice of her life…
