Tao and Kai's journey has been long and at last they have arrived at the Dragon Haven – but what they find is not the sanctuary Kai has described. Are they unwelcome? Will they be made to leave? It seems they will be forced straight back into the clutches of the murderous nomad leader Jilong, who is intent on vengeance. How can Tao keep Kai safe? Being a Dragonkeeper is so much more difficult than Tao could have imagined. But when things are at their worst, help can come from the most unexpected places. And the least powerful can become a mighty force. Perhaps there is a place for dragons in this world after all.
