England is overrun by dragons, but most people are blissfully unaware. Only the members of the Blue Order, blessed with preternatural hearing, are able to hear the dragons. Charge, by the Pendragon Treaty, with keeping the peace between human and dragon kind, the Blue Order sees to the dragons needs and keeps their secrets from society at large.When the first major dragon egg laid in a century is stolen from Pemberley, the Pendragon Treaty and the entirety of Great Britain is threatened. If the egg hatches without human presence, the dragon will turn wild and grow to ravage the countryside.
Dragon Keeper Fitzwilliam Darcy and his companion dragon, Walker, must do whatever it takes to recovery the egg, including following the Derbyshire militia to the quaint market town of Meryton. When the egg does not arrive with the militia, he is forced turn to local Dragon Keeper Bennet and his daughter Elizabeth for help.
Among Dragon Keepers, Elizabeth is exceptional. She shares a unique bond with dragons that few have ever had. That makes the Blue Order’s directive to assist Mr. Darcy particularly difficult to follow. Haughty, arrogant and rude, how can she trust him to care for something as precious as the first fire drake to hatch in three centuries?
But assist him she must. The fate of England hinges on their ability to work together to recover the stolen egg before it hatches.
