Kara can call birds. All she has to do is think
and they alight on her. Eventually she found that not everyone could do that. Surely that couldn’t be why the king’s men came to her father’s steading to take her to the king, could it? It is said that dragon’s are kin to birds, and if Kara can call birds, then she should be able to call dragons. That’s why the king wants her. He has promised his love, Lady Signy, that he would avenge her brother’s death, and her brother was killed by dragons. The only way the country can get an heir to the throne is for King Orrik to kill at least four dragons. So he needs Kara’s help.
Kara doesn’t think she can call the beasts…and if she has the ability, she doesn’t know how to do it. But if she doesn’t, Prince Rog has her friends Rath and Myrra…and he would kill them, too.
