Right man… right time…
Captain Liam O’Dare finds himself talking with a sea dragon. Not just any sea dragon, but the lord of them all, Skelaroth. The sea dragon brings information and a request to aid in Liam’s decades-long quest to bring the pirate Fisk to justice.

She gives him the information she has and he agrees to have her help on his quest.

Together, they are unstoppable - until they come face to face with evil magic being used against them. In the final battle, it will take all three of them - plus the help of a mysterious virkin friend. Will they prevail? Will Liam find his justice and the missing artifact?
