Daegon and Birten are a dragonslayer/squire team moving up in the ranks. Though they are intimate with one another, they have some issues both professionally and personally. And it doesn't help matters when a few other men come into their lives. There's Kep, a local barkeep struggling to keep his business afloat; Harmon, a prince with an unexpected past; and Elan, a rival slayer who will stop at nothing to stay on top. The lives of these five men begin to weave together as they each embark on journeys involving strangers with questionable motives, artifacts with mysterious powers, and of course, dragons.
