Lord Kildas Lakast of the Raven clan is cursed by the mysterious People of the Dragon.  Everyone he has ever known, including his wife and children, must beware the perils of the fire demons or be burned.  To relieve the Curse of Fire, Kildas must travel into the enchanted Andagaran Mountains and find an egg of a dragon.

In the meantime, Tomis Dukar and his friends are attacked and held hostage by brutal Outlanders.  The Outlander leader, Thorolf, threatens to take the lives of the Prince and Princess of Upper Ungal if the Crown of Creation is not given to him.  With this Crown of the Gods, Thorolf could rule the world.  Tomis is tempted to use his magic to kill Thorolf, but if he uses this blessed gift of the gods to bring death, the Prophecy of Peace will no longer hold true and the Brother of Death will prevail.  Tomis’ cunning and the Curse of Fire may be all that can save him and the people of Ungal.

Generations of war has devastated the land of Ungal.  The people are forced to endure constant violence and turmoil.  But there is hope.  The oracles reveal the Prophecy of Peace.  It is foretold that the Third Dragon will set the Prophecy in motion and eventually bring peace to the land.

Our hero, Tomis Dukar, is the third son of King Haban Dukar, descendant of the ancient Dragon clan.  Tomis is fated to be the Third Dragon of the Prophecy, but his father has his own ideas of how the Prophecy is to be fulfilled.  King Haban sees Tomis as a threat to his ambitions.  Especially when he learns Tomis has the magical ability to heal or kill with a mere touch.  So before Tomis can fulfill his destiny, he must survive the evil of his father.

Blood is drawn; the choice is made.  Tomis begins his journey when he is still a young boy.  He is rescued by a common soldier, who has some magical ability to sense the thoughts of others.  An enemy of the King, Lord Kildas Lakast of the Raven clan, aids Tomis against the King’s soldiers.  Sisters of an order of magic protect him from the magic of the King’s necromancer.
