The colonies of Mistria are in turmoil. They face wars between
the competing empires and and insurrection from natives and
colonists alike. Prince Vladamier is a Norillian noble, and Nephew
to King Richard. He has little political power, but struggles to
ensure the colonists interests are represented back in the court.
The one thing he does have is a wurm... one of the few existing
"dragons" from a clutch of eggs discovered in the old world,
hundreds of years ago. As Mistria swirl into chaos, Vlad is married
off to an old world princess. This new alliance is supposed to help
supply money and mercenaries to put down the various insurrections.
But, nobody suspects that Vlad's wurm is about to undergo a change
that will impact the worlds delicate political balance...
