Fantastical whispers thread through the festival crowd. Are the rumours true? Southern deserts turned to glass? Northern cattle herds snap frozen?

The unthinkable is compounded by the impossible. Unbeliever Annie Weaver is ambushed by slave traders and rescued by a telepathic dragon who claims Annie is an incarnation of the missing Creator Goddess.
