Only the invasive blue dragon flowers in her garden belie Marni's secret. She is the niece of the king and the daughter of a dragon. When events force Marni to claim her rightful place as princess in her uncle's court, King Roderick eyes the dragon-born girl with suspicion, blaming her for the enchanted, rapidly encroaching woods that are destroying his kingdom. Will the king kill Marni, as he did her mother, or will Marni get her revenge first? A rich, compelling fantasy for the wild at heart.
