The series features an ancient, ongoing battle between two clans of humans who can shapeshift (ice wolves and scorch dragons) – and follows two siblings who combine the powers of the enemy clans.
Growing up on the streets of Vallen, a land caught between the battles of two feared shapeshifting clans – the Ice Wolves and the Scorch Dragons – twelve-year-old twins Anders and Rayna survive by picking the pockets of the rich tourists who visit their town.
When their own, unexpected shapeshifting abilities reveal themselves, Anders becomes an Ice Wolf, and his sister, Rayna, transforms into a Scorch Dragon – something that should be impossible with blood-family.
What transpires is an adventure across 3 books filled with battles, friendship, triumph and loss as Anders and Rayna learn about themselves, their history and how to save their beloved Vallen and its people.
