The centuries-old prophesy of the One is being fulfilled, and the ancient dragon clans are coming out of hiding to remake the world. The king of the magic users will stop at nothing to be sure the prophecy is fulfilled the right way–with his oppressive government ruling. As they struggle for power, Haylwen (14) and her brother Cadarn (16) just happen to be caught dead center.
The One will drag us back in
the world with humans again.
One from each of we the Three

and all that we safely hide.
To our worlds he brings new rage
to return a golden age
infinite to all and Three.
