Jace, a high-wire acrobat in a traveling circus, thought he knew the thrill of adventure. But when he meets Belen, a strange girl with no memory of her past, he soon discovers how much more adventure--and danger--awaits him. Not long after Belen joins the circus, a wizard arrives and stops the show--not by magic, but by accusation. Belen is not human, he says: she is a shapeshifting dragon, who destroyed a nearby town.
As Jace and Belen set off in a race against time to clear Belen's name and recover her memory, mysterious forces conspire to throw them off track. Can Jace learn to fly through the air with the greatest of ease--on the back of a dragon--before time runs out?
In the next installment of R.D. Henham's series inspired by The New York Times bestseller A Practical Guide to Dragons, a new hero polishes the tarnished reputation of a noble silver dragon.
