Keller is a seventeen-year-old shapeshifter, a panther, who goes by her last name only.
She’s an operative for Circle Daybreak and her mission is simple: find the third Wild Power who can fend off the Apocalypse.
Keller does find Iliana, and much more, as well: a dragon in the shape of a human, and her own liege lord Galen. So, she learns: dragons walk the Earth again, even if in disguise. And Iliana is as far from a serious Wild Power as Keller can imagine.
A love triangle quickly develops between the handsome princely Galen, the exquisite but bubble-minded Iliana, and Keller — who counts herself out with her favorite saying, “I’m just a grunt.”
Life has surprises in store for the cynical, embittered Keller, and her opinions of both Galen and Iliana are in for a radical change.
