Topaz is a dragon swan, a female dragon, who is sent to another dimension to find earthlings. The Earthlings left their planet using machines causing rips in space. They must return home. The dimension she lands on has what she calls giant ants on it. She only finds human bones to take home. While in the new dimension she meets a male dragon, Kirai, who has come to that dimension to look for dragon swans. Kirai wants to take Topaz to his home so he can court her. Topaz agrees to go with him and at his home another male dragon shows up; his name is Galen. He says her father Draven, king of the dragons, has not found out that his mate is alive and that he has children. All three go and visit Topaz sister's Ruby from book one of the D.A.R.E. project.
I have not read the first book in the series, "Ruby Dare" and misunderstood some comments; however, the authors at the beginning of the book gave a very nice recap of "Ruby Dare". The authors have created a lovely story with characters I want to keep reading about in following books. Bring on the series!
Topaz has been enjoying the small freedoms that each assignment for retrieval has given her. When confronted by deadly insects that have already killed her targets, she has to choose running for her life or finishing her job. She is assisted by another dragon who offers her an option for her time off. He will take her to visit her sister if she will spend some time getting to know him, and part of her is only too delighted to happily to take Kirai up on his offer. Dragons, kidnapping, giant bugs, poisons and meeting a sister she thought dead make for quite the short layover for an active D.A.R.E. agent.
