"Hope is a poison. One drop can consume you and make you believe in things that will never happen. It must be crushed before it is allowed to take root." - ??? Brennda Axel knew it would be tough to join the School of Dragons as a Berskerer while her people were at odds with Berk. She must fight past suspicion and distrust with her Skrill, Bolt, as she proves to everyone she can be depended upon. Just as she seems to have succeeded, she meets someone who will turn her whole world upside down. She has never felt anything so real in her life, but can she really trust Harald Forkbeard? When the truth comes out, it may be too late. Part 1 of a four part series following the School of Dragons expansions.
