Lalit is a weak being in the world of magic. He is part of a race that, though gifted with wings and power, is very fragile. The race has no name, but the creatures are ofter called sprites or pixies. Anything along those lines, really. The only thing that gives these beings any sort of strength is that when one is born, a dragon egg is hatched and given to the child. The dragon lives by and protects the child, an unbreakable bond between both creatures. Lalit and his dragon Bane work for the Queen as messengers. When a trip that should have been easy and quick turns into a nightmare of kindnapping, ransoms, and extraordinarily handsome captors, Lalit must fight for their lives and his dignity.
