Researcher Anne Crosby came to Russia to solve the mystery of amnesiac Ivan Krempenski. Instead, she became part of the mystery. Never a believer in the paranormal, Anne discovers Ivan’s true dragon form–and her own.

Anne made dangerous enemies when she stole the power of the dragons from the Russian government. The FSB is hunting her. Allies have been turned into traitors. And her tenuous grip on power depends on her finding the missing people who complete her court. If she can find them in time, there is a promise of immortal joy. If she can’t, then the dragons will once again become slaves.More info →
