Enchanted for thousands of years, the shapeshifters known as the Dragon’s Tooth Warriors have awakened to find the world a vastly different place. Their leader, concerned for their morale, dares to take them on a mission to confront the fullness of everything they’ve lost.
Little does Drake realize that this dangerous mission will give him a renewed purpose. And if they succeed these Pyr will have to question everything they thought they knew about the past—and confront a quest for the future.
This short story featuring the Dragon’s Tooth Warriors developed from scenes edited out of Whisper Kiss. It is the beginning of Drake’s story, which continues through the Dragon Legion Novellas (Kiss of Danger, Kiss of Darkness, and Kiss of Destiny) then culminated with his firestorm in Firestorm Forever. It’s available on its own in a digital edition, and is also included in Here Be Dragons in both print and digital formats.
