An ex-spy's quest for redemption leads her into an uneasy partnership with a genetically-engineered dragon.

For decades, an elite group of spies within the CIA has kept the existence of magic secret from the world. Katrina Harris counted herself among their number, until a drunken brawl with a co-worker got her fired. She’d do anything to re-enter the thrilling world of supernatural espionage—even infiltrate a terrorist cell without backup. 

Dr. Phyllis Harper has an Arctic fortress, a dozen magic-wielding soldiers, and a flock of genetically-engineered dragons capable of knocking American warplanes from the sky. All she needs are pilots. A chance encounter lets Katrina talk the doctor into recruiting her. If Katrina escapes Harper’s fortress with intelligence, she can convince her old bosses to take her back. 

But neither magic nor science can prepare Katrina to have a dragon in her mind. A creature cunning enough to ferret out all her secrets . . . and one whose own fierce memories tell Katrina she might be working for the wrong side.

I'm liking this story. I like how you start off the beginning with music of the violin, because that's a dramatic start that seems like it's leading to something. Great so far

What a cool concept! And your writing style flows very smoothly. I love the way it all sounds very plausible. The little detail about Indigo appearing to managed the CIA's financial assets in particular stood out to me as cool worldbuilding.

This is similar to some of the future stories I am writing. Enjoying this so far, looking forward to some serious action.

I haven't started to read this yet, but already I must say that I LOVE the title--which is pretty rare for me. Not many stories intrigue me just from the title so well done in that department!!
