Jared and his dragon companion Scarlet emerge from the depths of the earth triumphant. Fire dragons once again walk the world, but will it be enough to throw off the chains of captivity binding mankind to a dismal existence?
The rulers in the floating cities tighten the noose around Jared's neck as dissent brews among the waterfolk, putting everyone he loves and protects in danger. Jared must learn how to lead and guide his people to safety. While ships from above pursue the group with powerful weapons, the fire dragons begin to bond with the waterfolk, allowing them to develop special abilities and grow their powers.
Even with his superhuman body and the increased power of bonded fire dragons, Jared and Scarlet come to a critical realization; they will never stand against the cities alone. Building alliances sends them to the far corners of the world on a quest for vengeance and justice.
