Billy and Tai-Yu's battle in the fairy realm of Oryona is at a stale mate, but another one looms in the realm of the Elves, a battle that will send Deseray, with a heart broken by Billy, on a the quest Mother Wong has setup for her. Deseray must make decisions that will not only change her life, but could cause the fall of Elvonia, the realm of the Elves, sending into slavery to the Black Witches, and the shadow. Along the way she must save the lives of a princess, a small girl who watched the death of her mother and father, and try to convince the elves that their dragon guardian is not their enemy. And if this is not enough, she must come to terms with the fate destiny has in store for her. In the end she not only has to find out who she has become, and how her new fate will change the fate of her new niece, Ming-mei. But she must choose between love and duty to the Gods. In this part of the tales of the Dragon Realms their defense lays in the hands of a small young woman who is sill trying to decide who she is, and why she must always be left to defend for herself. Is there not someone out there who will defend her?
