The first book in a new romance epic fantasy trilogy, in which long-banished dragons, revered as gods, return to the mortal realm
"An intriguing world, forbidden romance, unique magic, and of course, as many dragons as your heart could possibly desire.” —Tara Sim, author of The City of Dusk
“Tight, tense, smoldering, and wonderfully queer." —Mike Brooks, author of The God-King Chronicles
“Dragons have never been so sexy.” —Kate Dylan, author of Mindwalker
Long ago, humans betrayed dragons, stealing their magic and banishing them to a dying world. Centuries later, their descendants worship dragons as gods. But the "gods" remember, and they do not forgive.
Thief Arcady scrapes a living on the streets of Vatra. Desperate, Arcady steals a powerful artifact from the bones of the Plaguebringer, the most hated person in Lumet history. Only Arcady knows the artifact's magic holds the key to a new life among the nobles at court and a chance for revenge.
The spell connects to Everen, the last male dragon foretold to save his kind, dragging him through the Veil. Disguised as a human, Everen soon learns that to regain his true power and form and fulfil his destiny, he only needs to convince one little thief to trust him enough to bond completely--body, mind, and soul—and then kill them.
Yet the closer the two become, the greater the risk both their worlds will shatter.
