Nero has always aspired to be an astrologer in the royal court of Incendium. When he divines a portent about the pending royal marriage, he makes the perilous journey to the capital city, only to be kept from delivering his tidings in time. Worse, Nero is assigned the task of pursuing a dragon princess bent on taking vengeance upon her reluctant groom, a feat he knows can't be done. His dream appears to be lost forever—until the captivating princess Peri surprises this unlikely advisor.
Nero's Dream is a short story set in Incendium, which should be read after Wyvern's Mate.
