Dragons once again inhabit the world of the Rain Wilds. But unlike their ancestors, these creatures are half-formed, flightless, and unable to feed or care for themselves. Their only hope for survival is to return to Kelsingera, their ancient, mythical homeland. Helpless to make the dangerous trek along the toxic and inhospitable Rain Wild River alone, the dragons are accompanied by a rag-tag group of human keepers. Overcoming tragedy, hardship, fear, and mistrust, the dragons and humans form deep, abiding bonds that unite them in unexpected ways.

But those bonds will be severely tested during the journey’s final days. The lost city can only be reached by flight—a test of endurance and skill beyond the strength of these stunted creatures. Desperate and losing hope, they must search the depths of their ancestral memories for the knowledge that might save them. But time is running out, not only for the dragons, but for their human keepers as well.
