Journey with Tiffin to retrieve a dragon scale to save his aunt and the realm!

At fourteen, Tiffin is an expert horseman. His job is to tend the family’s goats and shoe horses in his father’s smithy. He longs to become an etherae – a group of individuals with the ability to wield elemental powers over earth, plants, food, and more. Anyone is welcome to study at the prestigious academy, but only a few become great. However, his responsibilities prevent him from enrolling.

A sickness spreading throughout the land, and it is always fatal. The only known cure is made from a rare dragon scale plucked from the deadliest of the dragon breeds, and no one can find the dragon let alone get close to it. When Tiffin’s aunt succumbs to the illness, he must retrieve the rare dragon scale for the antidote.

Tiffin has no guarantee that if he’s successful his aunt will survive, but he rides fearlessly toward the lair. He has less than a fortnight to find the scale, return, and hope that the potion can be brewed in time.
