War of the Dragon Tribes

Once there was tentative peace between the dragon tribes . . . but now they are locked in a war that has spread across the whole world.

The laws of succession for all the dragon tribes state that a queen may be challenged at any time to mortal combat by her daughters or sisters. If she wins, she remains queen; if she dies, her challenger goes on to rule in her place.

But eighteen years ago, Queen Oasis of the SandWings was unexpectedly killed by a human, who ran off with most of her treasure hoard. The queen’s death left behind three daughters, an empty treasury, and a power vacuum.

The three potential queens have been fighting bitterly ever since, drawing all the other tribes into their terrible war. It’s not hard to get dragons to fight one another, especially when all the tribes know that the SandWing treasure is out there somewhere, waiting for a fortunate dragon to reclaim it.

But some dragons feel that enough blood has been spilled in this war. An underground movement, the Talons of Peace, is working to bring lasting peace to the dragons’ world. It all starts with a prophecy delivered by a seer of the mysterious NightWing tribe.

The prophecy tells of five dragons with a destiny . . . but as is often the case, not every dragonet wants to have a destiny . . . and not every dragonet will do as they’re told, not even by the forces of prophecy.
