She longs for a better future.
Avery Tanglewood has had enough of rearranging her life for the sake of others. After years of taking a backseat to her family’s needs, she’s ready to strike out on her own. If only she knew what she wanted to do with the rest of her life.
He’s a prisoner of the past.
For hundreds of years, Xavier has used his dragon magic to protect his Highland clan inside a pocket of space called the builgean. Generations have enjoyed years of peace and prosperity cut off from the modern world, thanks to his unique abilities. But when a fairy trickster captures him and claims his throne, his refuge becomes his prison.
Can they free each other from the chains that bind?
Avery agrees to journey into the builgean to persuade Xavier to help with the crisis in Paragon, but she finds a mysterious stranger in his place—a problematic complication, considering she can’t leave the pocket without Xavier’s assistance. Although she finds a way to release the dragon from his imprisonment, he refuses to return to the outside world with her, insisting on winning back his land and his clan first. At first Avery protests, but the longer she spends in Xavier's magical world, the harder it is to remember the reasons she should return to her own.
