Henry of Hicktonshire loved the scent of dragon feces. On her dying bed his mother said to him, "My son, you possess a gift that no other person in this world has. Follow your heart and your nose!" Thus, he became a dragon handler in the Kingdom of Krappolia.

When a rare aquamarine dragon is stolen at the Dragon Unveiling and Bestowal Ceremony, Sir Gareth of the Knight's Triad is sent on a quest to find it, and Henry must accompany him. During their adventures, Henry will endure hardships beyond his imagination. He will see war and death and learn that peace is never truly permanent.

Love, friendship, and queer encounters await him.

Will he survive in this cruel world?
Will he find the missing dragon?
And most importantly, will Henry ever fulfill his lifelong dream of opening a perfume shop?

That all depends on his knowledge of the scent of dragons...
