Is he the savior of dragonkind or the instrument of their destruction? The son of Balzurth the Dragon King--a hot-tempered youth still trapped in human form--Nath Dragon, knows what he must do to earn his scales. Dragons throughout Nalzambor are being hunted, enslaved, and killed by poachers, and the young warrior is duty-bound to venture forth into the world of orcs, elves, ogres, and men to rescue his endangered winged kinsfolk. But there are unforeseen dangers for the unsuspecting dragon prince beyond the sanctuary of the Mountain of Doom. For now the sinister machinations of High Priestess Selene and the Clerics of Barnabus threaten all of dragonkind. And in a moment of violent fury, Nath is lost to the dark side and cursed for all time. Yet one slim hope remains, as Nath--armed with the magical sword called Fang and in the company of his ally, Brenwar the Dwarf--sets out on a perilous path toward salvation. At its end, the ultimate battle awaits him, when he will have to confront the powerful evil of the Clerics and his own corrupted nature. And if Nath does not prevail, his noble race is doomed.
