Bargaining with dragons proves perilous when every word uttered holds the weight of destiny.
In the chilling expanse of the Cadore Mountains, Dira finds herself entangled in a precarious deal with Brundar, a dragon who shows an unnecessary interest in her plight to endure the harsh winter alone. Eager for food and shelter, she strikes an agreement with the enigmatic creature: she'll keep the young dragon he mentors in check, and in return, she'll be provided with sustenance and refuge.
Seemingly clever in convincing Brundar that his knowledge of human survival is unnecessary, Dira expects the negotiation to be a challenge. But to her astonishment, the dragon concedes without the slightest protest.
A mere two-minute conversation seals the pact, leaving Dira with an exasperating warrior determined to educate her and a war she never sought to join.
As the ramifications of her hasty agreement tighten their grip, Dira finds herself entangled in a web of dragon designs, each pulling her future in different directions.
The bargains she's struck chafe, and she's left with a heart-wrenching decision: unravel the intricate knots she's tied or venture into making a bargain of her own—one that might lead to a shattered heart, caught between the love of one man and the hate of another.
Dragons hold sway over destinies, and promises weigh heavily on the souls entangled in their grasp. As alliances shift and passions ignite, Dira must navigate the treacherous waters of her choices.
Will she find a way to unshackle herself from the binding bargains before it's too late, or will she risk everything for a future entwined with a dragon's bargain and a man's promise?
Embark on this dangerous adventure with Dira in this standalone Solstice Dragon World novel where coming under the eye of a dragon will command a precarious view.
