Henry has no idea where he’s going or how he’s going to get there, but when he turns eighteen at the end of the summer, he’s gone.
If the dragons don’t kill him first.
Since the end of the Dragon War, two hundred years ago, humans have survived by following one simple rule—don’t cross the border. Henry doesn’t plan on crossing the border, but he needs an escape. To forget his ex-girlfriend. To avoid his annoying best friend. To escape his mom and their endless fighting. And sitting on the edge of the boreal forest, looking over the frozen tundra, turns out to be a great place to get away.
Until the dragon attacks.
After he survives not only the fiery encounter, but several hours passed out in the arctic cold, Henry wakes with no memory of the time he lost and leaves the border, both angry at the dragon and vowing never to return. But Henry can’t stay away. He can’t forget the last thing he remembers while face to face with the beast; her song.
Henry needs to know what she did to him, but gets more than he bargains for when the dragon decides to learn more about him, in a way he never could have imagined.
A way without escape.
