Amber, the Lady Dragon, has been promised a fifty-year reign over Rizkaland and nothing can stop her from claiming it. But when you’ve lived six thousand years, fifty is such a pitiful number. Only one person can keep her from making this reign permanent – the Tela Du, a girl who shall share Amber’s face.
The last thing Petra wants is a magical world interrupting her plans for a normal life, let alone an ultimate battle against the Lady Dragon with only one prophesied survivor. She has her childhood best friend, Reuben, at her side, but she’s not sure if he’s more of a help or a hindrance right now. Though she’d much prefer to just return home and forget about this whole crazy affair, things change when she discovers that the world has surprising connections to her own family – including her sister who disappeared without a trace two years before. Still, Rizkaland can’t possibly expect her to risk her very life, can it?
From Lady Dragon, Tela Du
Rintaya’s “house” proved to be a doormat.
At least, that’s all that Petra could see even remotely resembling a home, when Rintaya stopped walking and declared that they’d arrived. It did not even remotely resemble the castle she’d promised.
“Is your house magic?” asked Reuben.
“What do you mean?” asked Rintaya.
“It’s just that, normally, when someone says castle, I picture a large fortress with lots of towers, maybe a moat with a small sea monster in it, definitely some heavy walls, and I don’t see anything like that here.”
“Oh,” said Rintaya, nodding slowly. “Then I suppose I do understand your confusion.”
“Does ‘castle’ mean something else here in Rizkaland?” asked Petra.
“Oh, no,” said Rintaya, shaking her head. “Indeed, your definition is pretty much spot on for what we describe as well.”
