In a world where magic is forbidden, twenty special children are given crystal heart pendants. Heirs of magic, the necklaces are not just a pretty bauble but indicative of forbidden magical blood.
Heart bearer Elissa scoffed at her brother's belief in dragons. That is until one abducted her on her eleventh birthday. Flown to the isle of Jintessa in its claws, Elissa discovers that not only are dragons real, but also the shapeshifters of legend.
Bonded telepathically to a Djinn Dragonmerger named Druzy and his dragon Mysty, Elissa is given a mission to return to Tyr and free her home from the tyranny of an emperor determined to control all magic.
Hunted by her brother, Elissa must free her people before Ellas catches up with her. Can Elissa destroy the magical barrier, without destroying Ellas in the process?
The struggle for ultimate control of magic, has begun.
