In the beginning, there was the Namsara: the child of sky and spirit, who carried love and laughter wherever he went. But where there is light, there must be dark--and so there was also the Iskari. The child of blood… and moonlight. The destroyer. The death bringer. These are the legends that Asha, daughter of the king of Firgaard, has grown up hearing in hushed whispers, drawn to the forbidden figures of the past. But it isn't until she becomes the most feared dragon slayer in the land that she takes on the role of the next Iskari. Followed by "The caged queen". For senior high readers. 2017.
