Synopsis

Sid can’t seem to catch a break.

Between his council demanding to go to war and Jens watching his every move, he can barely breathe.

When one of the dragon babies shows up at Sid’s house, he does everything he can to keep her from being spotted but sometimes even the best laid plans can go awry.

Meanwhile, Isa isn’t speaking to Liam and he sees danger all around her. When one of the guardians dies, Liam must go against Isa’s wishes to protect her and secrets come out that were best left unsaid…

First Chapter

Flying never induced anxiety in Sid before, but heading home this morning, it sure did. They left Sequoia and Murdoch behind, not knowing when he’d see them again. Not only that, but he’d received four reports of new attacks from a small band of green dragons. Not all resulted in death, but most did. They only attacked when a dragon was flying solo.

Sid touched down in their backyard with a breath of relief, and Aspen scrambled off his back. She hadn’t said a word to him all morning. She would eventually, and when she did, he would make her understand why sending the babies into hiding was necessary. He thought, for sure, she’d see the reason in it, especially with the green dragons randomly killing, but she stormed into the house and slammed the door.

Sid changed into his human form and collapsed onto a patio chair. The last time he’d sat out here, he’d been teaching Liam and Damon how to make steaks on the grill. They’d burned three of them, produced two raw pieces, and cooked one perfect steak. He missed his son. The ache in his chest was ever-present.

He stared off into the tree line, watching the clouds float lazily by. A small speck was flying straight toward him.

What now? He wasn’t ready for more bad news. It was likely news of another attack by those green dragons.

He stood and debated whether or not to turn into a dragon. If he didn’t recognize the form in a few moments, he would. It was smaller than most. Maybe a river dragon. But it looked darker than a river dragon. He thought for a second it might be Baden, but the dragon was bigger than him.

The clouds shifted and illuminated the dragon, and Sid’s stomach dropped out.

A tiny green dragon landed in front of him. One he knew quite well. This was no river dragon.

“Pepper! What are you doing here?” She could’ve easily been killed on her way. Or seen. He couldn’t believe she’d take such a risk.

She cowered in front of him. Please, Your Majesty, don’t be angry. I heard you and Sequoia talking last night. I don’t want to go deeper into hiding. I want to stay here with you and Aspen.

He tried to keep his voice level. “Who saw you leave?”

No one.

“Did anyone follow you?”

I…I…don’t think so. She trembled on the ground, her head lowered.

Sid looked around his yard. For all he knew, Jens saw her fly in. Perhaps he was wrong to keep his enemy close.

“I need you to change into your human form, quickly.”

She did as she was told, and Sid breathed a sigh of relief. Her wide green eyes looked up at him in fright, and her bright red hair exploded around her head. He didn’t know what on earth he would do with her.

He knelt before her.

“Pepper, it’s very, very important you listen to me. I will not bring you back to Sequoia because it’s too dangerous. By following me, you have put all your brothers and sisters at risk. I need you to make me a promise. Can you do that?”

She nodded solemnly.

“I need you to promise me that until I tell you so, you cannot turn into a dragon. You must remain human. Do you understand?”

“Why?” Her voice quaked a little.

“Because there are some very bad people who want to kidnap the green and purple children. We are trying to protect you, but we can’t do that if you take unnecessary chances. As long as you stay a human, they can’t tell what you are.”

“Will they know I’m a dragon?”

“No. For now, just stay human, and I’ll let you know if there is anything else I need you to do. Your brothers’ and sisters’ lives depend on you.”

Sid hated putting that much pressure on a child, but he had no choice. She had to know the risk she’d taken.

This was one more complication he didn’t need right now.
