Vanya is one of the best horse handlers in her regiment. She trains and retrains warhorses, never expecting or wanting more. Until the night that a dragon is dragged into camp in chains. Used to training dangerous animals, Vanya is assigned to tame and train the dragon. She's never encountered a dragon before, but is told that only a woman can train a dragon. As she attempts to reach the wild creature, it resists every trick she knows. When it breaks free and traps her beneath it, it quickly becomes apparent why only a woman can train a dragon. Is Vanya willing to truly tame the dragon?
