On her first assignment out of the Academy, young healer and scholar, Shannon Macaulay is summoned to the struggling kingdom of Regone to see to the wounds of a young but crippled king. When the unwanted attentions of an aggressive knight and the sudden appearance of a hated dragon turn her world upside down, she decides to take matters into her own hands even if doing so proves dangerous.
Finding herself strangely drawn to the company of the dragon, Gnaw, Shannon must force herself out of her safe world of books and botany to come to the aid of her unexpected ally in a strange kingdom, cursed by a fateful encounter with a dragon and the loss of a beloved prince. Can she learn to put aside her fears, and perhaps sacrifice her deepest desires, to help a friend and restore a family?

Inexperienced but determined, the young scholar, Shannon, answers a call to heal a king wounded by dragons – and pokes her own head into a nearby dragon’s lair. She finds an unexpected kindred spirit in Gnaw, a sarcastic dragon with his own agenda. With a crude knight fixing to lop off the dragon’s head, Shannon works against her royal employer to keep Gnaw’s head at the end of his neck, instead of displayed over the palace gate. Now she and Gnaw must face wicked knights, flying monsters that steal memories, a prince determined to marry Shannon, and ultimately, the curse of the Dragon itself.
