Faeri has something no one else does: the ability to sing power into objects and direct that power to her will. For more than two decades she and the obsidian dragon paired with her, Chrysanthemum, have been traveling Aneri, using her song to give gifts to everyone they come across that will make their lives easier. But then the fabled enemy in the stories, the Nightmare, shows its hand, trying to taint Faeri’s gifts and make them a snare to the souls of those who keep them.
Just when Faeri is convinced that her song is worse than useless, a conflict with nightmare creatures reveals Chrysanthemum’s fire as a bane to the Nightmare. . .
A standalone novella and prequel to the Return of the Dragonriders Trilogy (DragonBirth, DragonWing, and DragonSword).
