Nearly a hundred years after the Ice changed the face of our world, the people of Moline work to reclaim the frozen land. When real, honest-to-goodness dragons take up residence in the hills outside of town, the citizens are at a loss for how to deal with a problem the government won't believe exists.
David Anderson knows very little of the world outside of his family's farm, until Callan, an assistant healer from the southlands, arrives in Moline and begins to teach him of a world he never knew, full of books and ideas, and history long forgotten. When Callan is found in the arms of another man--a crime in this post-Ice world--David learns a frightening truth about himself, and the difference between what is legal...and what is right.
When trouble hits the nearby town of Crawford, David and Callan discover the seeds of a plot that affects not only their home, but towns just like Moline across the world. Now they must fight to save their home, not only from the dragons, but from a government that wants them dead!
