Long ago, dragons were hunted to near extinction by the Order of St. George, a legendary society of dragon slayers. Hiding in human form and growing their numbers in secret, the dragons of Talon have become strong and cunning, and they’re positioned to take over the world with humans none the wiser.
Ember and Dante Hill are the only sister and brother known to dragonkind. Trained to infiltrate society, Ember wants to live the teen experience and enjoy a summer of freedom before taking her destined place in Talon. But destiny is a matter of perspective, and a rogue dragon will soon challenge everything Ember has been taught. As Ember struggles to accept her future, she and her brother are hunted by the Order of St. George.
Soldier Garret Xavier Sebastian has a mission to seek and destroy all dragons, and Talon’s newest recruits in particular. But he cannot kill unless he is certain he has found his prey—and nothing is certain about Ember Hill. Faced with Ember’s bravery, confidence and all-too-human desires, Garret begins to question everything that the Order has ingrained in him—and what he might be willing to give up to find the truth about dragons.
Bright, energetic, and as rebellious as she is beautiful, Ember chafes at the restrictions placed upon her by TALON. It doesn’t help that her brother is a good little follower, convinced that TALON knows best. But when a rogue dragon offers her a chance at a different life, and a dragon hunter threatens everything she holds dear, she will have to choose between the brother she loves and the life she has always dreamed of.
Young, handsome, and gifted with a silver tongue, Dante Hill is everything a hatchling of TALON should be. He has the seemingly innate ability to blend in, befriend, and subtly influence any group of humans. He is also a firm believer in the tenets of TALON, that dragons are meant to rule, and that the most important thing in the world is to ensure the survival of their race. Now, if only he could get his sister to believe the same things…
Trained to be an infiltrator and saboteur by TALON, Riley quickly grew disillusioned with the nefarious nature of his work and the moral ambiguity of TALON. He fled the organization and went underground. But unlike many Rogues, he swore to help his people, and get more dragons out from under the iron claw of TALON.
Garret Xavier Sebastian
Orphaned at a young age and raised by the Order of Saint George, Garret has been brought up to be the perfect soldier. Trained almost from birth in multiple martial arts, combat arms, and military tactics, he is the Order’s most perfect weapon. Until, that is, he meets a young dragon who will shake the foundations of the beliefs he has spent his entire life fighting for.
Tristan St. Anthony
A loyal soldier of the Order of Saint George, Tristan is a trained sniper and true believer in the Order’s mission. The veteran of many hunts, Tristan will face his most dangerous mission not in the wilds of the Amazon, but facing off with a pair of hatchlings on the breezy California coast, where he will have to make the most difficult decision of his life: betray the Order, or betray his best friend.
