Akrist has done the impossible-bonded with a dragon-and word is spreading.

Betrayed, broken, and banished, Akrist is left to wander the wilderness in search of his lost love, Yara. But he's not alone. Against all odds, he has bonded with Nardiri, one of the world's last dragons.

In this stunning sequel to Under the Lesser Moon, author Shelly Campbell brings us the heart-wrenching conclusion to Akrist's journey. In a cruel, unforgiving world, Akrist must navigate what it means to be marked as both a Speaker-a leader chosen by Nasheira herself-and an outcast. Haunted by the sacrifices of first-born sons, he fears the world cannot be changed, even with a dragon's help. But if he does nothing, the cycle of sacrifice will begin again when the moons touch.

Review quote

"Lush emotions, vivid characters, and a world with history-I didn't want this journey to end." -Essa Hansen, author of Nophek Gloss

"Stunning. The world building is some of the best I've ever read, and the main character, Akrist, has left me with a permanent ache in my heart. Set in a brutal, often merciless world, the story kept me breathlessly turning pages to the very end." -Julie Eshbaugh, author of Ivory and Bone

"A compelling story like none other, told in an incredibly crafted world." -Dan Vadeboncoeur, Co-host of the Media Nerds podcast

"Despite (or maybe because of) the unrelenting darkness, this book was gripping. I found myself willing everything to be alright." -Mug Full of Books

"Campbell creates scenes with incredible detail and deep understanding." -Brittni Brinn, author of The Patch Project

"In addition to the fantastic character development, the world-building is exceptional. It's a well-layered and immersive world, and I found the creation myth and its influence on society to be particularly fascinating." -One Book More

"The world that Akrist and his clan lives in is not a friendly one. Survival is a day to day struggle with the possibility of death at every turn... Campbell has created a new world that is both cruel and beautiful." -Never Enough Books

"Fantasy stories are usually made up of massive sentences and lots of flower writing, but this was simpler in the sense that the messages were conveyed through a much more authentic lens, that of a young boy growing up in a world that didn't want him." -Read to Ramble

"That was dark." -Personal Opinions of a Fangirl

"This is recommended for anyone who is sick of waiting for the newest Game of Thrones book, because seriously. That's taking a while." -A Lovely Little Book Blog
