Astrid assumed all dragons should be killed – until she met one that changed her mind.
In the medieval Northlands, a dangerous family seeks power.
They slaughter all who get in their way.
Children’s rhymes hint at what’s to come, but no one recognizes the danger at hand.
Astrid doesn’t know she holds the key to this power.
She’s just a blacksmith who makes swords for dragonslayers.
But Astrid has a dark secret …
A dragon once chewed her up and spit her out.
She hides the old scars covering her body through shapeshifting.
But the time for hiding is over.
