Zoe is finally beginning to come into her Wyvern powers and is loving the use of her newfound abilities (and hasn’t stopped making lists, either!). It’s been a quiet summer: the adult Pyr have made a treaty with the mages, there’s been no sign of Kohana and Zoe’s 16th birthday is on the way. Only two things are dragging Zoe down: not being able to tell Meagan her secret and not hearing from Jared all summer. She’s come up with a list of three things she wants for her sweet 16: a grudge match with Kohana, a tattoo and a chance to see Jared.
When Zoe’s family is falling apart and her best friend think she’s a liar and hates her, she must fight through the stress to survive the latest threat from the mages and save her friends — old and new. The adult Pyr don’t believe the mages are a threat and so it is up to Zoe, and an unlikely group of allies who have unexpected powers, to defeat the mages forever.
