Reaping of Ragond
A tragedy, a plague, and a dragon rider’s destiny….
Kira’s heart is broken when her stepfather dies in a dragon-riding accident. When it becomes clear that his dragon, Axel, is gravely ill, she knows she can’t take another loss. The only hope to heal him seems to rest with her mother’s old friend, who lives in the far-off city of Caravon. Kira has never left her village, but to save Axel, she’ll embark on the journey, and soon discover that he isn’t the only one sick.
In fact, a plague is sweeping through the dragons of Ragond, and no one knows the cause.
When Kira finds an abandoned dragon hatchling named Gilda, she soon comes to believe that the young dragon may be the key to the mysterious illness. After all, her mother succumbed to the sickness, but the hatchling is surprisingly healthy and eager to help Kira find the answers needed to eradicate the plague.
Both Kira and Gilda may be young, but they are far from ordinary, and as they begin to uncover the reasons for the illness, they discover a secret that threatens not only the dragons, but Ragond itself. Yet, curing the plague might not be enough to stop the dangers that threaten to overwhelm them.
The Aurium claim they want to help…but can they be trusted?
A mysterious plague started Kira on her epic quest, but dragons are no longer dying, and it’s all thanks to General Ignatius of the Aurium. He and his people have come from another world to share their magic and help the people of Ragond. They’ve even set up a school for young dragon riders like Kira. It all seems too good to be true, and Kira can’t help but feel that something isn’t right.
Though as Kira and her dragon Gilda learn more about Aurium magic she can’t help but be intrigued. And as she gets closer to the general’s son, Lysander, she’s willing to believe the Aurium are everything they say they are.
Until she discovers that, behind the glittering facade, deadly secrets are mounting. One of those secrets has to do with Kira’s very own family, complicating things even more. But when uncovering the truth leads her to discovering the dark past of the Aurium, can Kira convince the Council of the danger before Ragond is destroyed?
