Sometimes it all just goes wrong.
After the Lady of Battles orders a hopeless mission into gargoyle territory, only Captains Vaspara and Sorac survive.
Now that they have escaped and everyone back home thinks they're dead, the two captains see a once in a lifetime opportunity to escape their bloody destinies.
But where can a succubus with a conscience and a firedrake who only wants to fly off into the sunset with his closest friend go to be safe?
It might be foolish to wish for a quiet life after close to two thousand years of warfare, but Vaspara is nothing if not stubborn, and together, she and Sorac are determined to start a new life elsewhere.
Unfortunately…there's just one other problem.
Sorac has a clutch of fourteen eggs hidden under the Battle Goddess's fortress, and firedrakes never abandon their young.
If they want to escape once and for all, they need to find a way to rescue his clutch.
There's a third problem.
A deadly djinn guards the nest.
