A few feet away, a large flat, circular, dark stone, about the size and shape of Isabella’s head, rested in the center of the wall. There were petroglyphs etched into it. Twisting lines depicting winds. Jagged lines for mountains. Lines scrawled back and forth to make rivers. Stick people tending tight, curly lines: crops.

And in the center of the stone, a small, wingless dragon aloft in a sea of clouds. Jagged lines—lightning—sprang from it. Rain—long, straight lines—fell from it.

Alijandra leaned closer, peered at the etched figure of the dragon. Ran a finger along it. “It’s Pearl,” she said.

The story of the dragontamer’s daughters continues. After finding and tending a small, injured dragon, sisters Isabella and Alijandra try to keep “Pearl,” as they call her, a secret. But others find out, and want Pearl—and her powers—for their own purposes.

As time goes by, the girls learn more about those powers, and about Pearl. But time is running out for them, their family, and for Pearl herself. Soon, they will be forced to contend with the native people on whose lands they live. With the ambitious governor whose soldiers hunt the girls’ father. With a man who has no name but wields immense, eerie powers. With Pearl’s yearning to fulfill the journey that accidentally brought her to the girls. And with their own dreams and wishes for a life they once lived—and might live again.
