Before the dragons left, they took with them a human child as hostage. Tia has been raised by the dragons and considers them her family. She is appalled to learn that her own human mother is one of the sister-witches who are now the despotic rulers of Tulay.

In this first exciting adventure, Tia goes after the jewel that gives its possessor the power to control beasts. The second story, The Opal Quest, is published in March 2013.
