Ayrik thinks of himself as just a boy waiting for his father to return from the army.
Gnash is just a dragon who's known nothing but slavery his entire life.
When fate brings the two together, both find more in themselves than they ever imagined.
Stolen by Gnash, Ayrik's destiny is for the belly of a baby dragon, having everything taken from him, with nothing to his name when he faces his destiny and steals the final power from the evil of the empire.
When Gnash steals this annoying boy, he finds he's stolen more than he expected.
Their meeting sets both on adventures they never expected and starts something bigger than both of them.
