Naomi Cliffton believed she would go her whole life hiding her true identity. To the people of Tyrra, she is someone barren of magic and a social pariah. In reality, she is the last dragon shifter: a lone survivor of a race that was killed off for being a threat to Tyrra's hierarchy. In fear of being persecuted like her ancestors, Naomi has never revealed herself, until a chance encounter with one boy changes everything. Malcolm is not the simple guy he claims to be when they first meet, but the prince of Tyrra, escaping from the castle to avoid his royal duties. When street thugs uncover his ruse, they seek to abduct Malcolm and cross Naomi off as collateral damage. Desperate to save them both, Naomi transforms, unleashing her inner dragon. Exposed, Naomi has to accept the pact the king offers: her freedom in exchange for becoming Malcolm's bodyguard. Naomi joins Malcolm at his elitist school where she deals with prejudice from her classmates and growing animosity towards Malcolm's pretentious ways. But when someone tries to murder Malcolm, Naomi must put their differences aside to uncover the conspiracy against the royal family. As more threats stack up, one thing is clear: with a determined assassin after the prince's life, it's up to Naomi whether or not the killer succeeds.
