A chill brushed Kathleen’s back. She shook herself and looked around at the camp, still quiet as before.
She looked into the grey stillness beyond the trees. Callum stood in the fog, silently watching her. She drew in a sharp breath. “Callum!”

When her father and the other villagers organize a search party for the dragon that preys on their homes, Kathleen enlists the help of her mysterious friend, Callum, to find the dragon first. What she does not know in her quest to save the magnificent beast, is that Callum has his own reasons for wanting to kill it.
