Adam Rivers is still getting used to life as being the only human mated to a dragon in an enemy nest. His lover, dragon warrior Novik Grey, is always accommodating, even if there are others who want to see Adam gone. After Novik rescues a friend of Adam's, tension in the nest rises, and the humans are considering going to war against the dragons. This is enough to cause a lot of stress and anxiety throughout the dragons, and Adam doesn't want to complain, even when a few people come a little too close, sound a little too threatening. Adam wants to take some of the load off of Novik's shoulders by handling this himself, by proving that he doesn't always have to rely on Novik to save him. When the dragons get together and form a plot to get Adam out of the nest, without his or Novik's permission, Adam might just be a little in over his head.
