Carmen wants to graduate. But the emperor wants her dead. Her classmates might, too.
At least she has a dragon on her side.
Carmen is days from graduation at assassin school. She’s desperate to finish ahead of her twin brother and the rest of the class. They’ve been trained to hunt using giant black swans, but Carmen has discovered a dragon. All she has to do is get on his back.
One problem: he’s killed everyone who gets near him.
Then the Emperor declares war on assassins. Graduation night is about to become the fight of her life.
