Vampires crave dragon’s blood. I’m the only guy who can deliver the goods.
My name is Fynn Drake.
I used to be the leading expert on dragon language and behavior. That was before vampires attacked my city. They killed hundreds, including my wife and precious daughter. But the vampires spared me. Why me and not the others? Because they deem my dragon expertise useful.
I’m their slave. Their henchman. Their broker. Dragon’s blood heals vampires from lethal injuries and even allows them to walk in daylight. It makes these monsters almost invincible.
This time when I arrive at a dragon colony to barter for vials of blood, they offer me a dragon child named Ishtar. She’s a mutant marked for culling, fated to be murdered by her own kind…or fed to the vampires.
But the notion of handing a helpless child— any child— over to bloodsuckers is too much to bear. Because I know that the vampires will devour this innocent young fledgling down to the last drop of her prized blood.
I will do for Ishtar what I could not do for my own daughter.
I will save her… or I will die trying.
