Against her parents' wishes, Susah leaves home on a quest to become one of the dragoneers, an elite fraternity of warriors sworn to defend the ancient garden of Eden against all trespassers. This adventure builds on the little we know about the antediluvian world and overlays it with a blend of technology, supernatural powers, fire-and-ice-breathing, flying dragons, giants, and martial arts to begin Susah's adventure to discover herself.
