Our setting is the rather desolate kingdom of Damar about which we know little except1 The heirs to the throne are called sola male or sol female It should really be the other way around or at least that would make it easier to follow for those of us who speak Latin2 The Damarians have occasionally suffered dragon infestation Dragons in this world are unreasoning beasts Forget about bonding with one and riding it3 They don t like witches in this land or people from the North and people from the North are often suspected of witchcraft without causeOne suspected witch was the dead second wife

magical Gift has never manifest Everyone in Damar is bronzed and black haired except our tall awkward fair skinned redheaded heroine She feels terribly alienated at court with no friends save her cousin Tor the heir to the throne girls cannot inherit in this kingdom Tor is in love with her but she s too immature to figure it outAerin took a dare from a mean female cousin to consume a plant that would supposedly kill anyone but a member of the royal family and this made her sick for months While laid up she discovered a book on dragon slaying that included a recipe for a balm that warded against dragon fireOnce she recovers Aerin spends most of her time training and bonding with an old lamed war horse named Talat who becomes her loyal steed when she finally tests out the dragon proof balm against a minor worm in a small villageWord of their first victory spreads in spite of dragon slaying not being a proper occupation for a princess and soon every village wants Aerin to deal with
