Ash Blake, a student at Ansullivan Dragonar Academy, has the unique ability to ride anyone's dragon. His own dragon, Eco, is even more unusual than he is: for unknown reasons, she was born in the form of a beautiful girl!
Ash hasn't had much time to figure out the mystery of Eco's appearance. Ansullivan is under attack by a kind of dragon no one's ever seen before―one that smells like death and regenerates when injured. As if that's not enough for a young dragon rider to deal with, the student council is recruiting, and a tempestuous member of the royal family is about to pay Ansullivan a fateful visit.
