Don't just fight the system…burn it.

Since discovering she is a shape-shifting, fire-breathing dragon on her sixteenth birthday (surprise!), Bryn McKenna’s world has been thrown into chaos. Being a “crossbreed”—part Red dragon and part Blue—means Bryn will never fit in. Not with dragon society. Not with the archaic and controlling Directorate. And definitely not when she has striped hair and a not-so-popular affection for rule-breaking…

But sneaking around with her secret boyfriend, Zavien, gets a whole lot harder when he’s betrothed to someone else. Someone who isn't a mixed breed and totally forbidden. And for an added complication, it turns out Bryn’s former archnemesis Jaxon Westgate isn’t quite the evil asshat she thought. Now she’s caught between her desire to fit in and a need to set things on fire. Literally.

Because if Bryn can’t adapt to the status quo…well, then maybe it’s time for her to change it.

The orchestral music swelled in the background, and Bryn saw her grandfather approaching the table. Was he finally coming to join them? It was about time.

He came around the table and held his hand out toward his wife. “Are you ready, Marie?”

“Yes.” Her grandmother actually smiled. They walked away hand in hand. “What’s that about?” she asked Jaxon. 

He gave her a long-suffering look. “Why am I your personal ambassador for the Christmas ball tonight?” 

“Because I find your personality so delightful.” She batted her eyelashes at him. “Now answer the question.” 

“They are walking toward the dance floor. The orchestra is playing a song. What do you think will happen next?” 
“Oh.” That made sense. “You don’t have to be so condescending.” 

“I strive to be just condescending enough, but sometimes the balance is hard to maintain.”

If her love life is going down in flames, she might as well spark a revolution.

Finding out on your sixteenth birthday you’re a shape-shifting dragon is tough to swallow. Being
hauled off to an elite boarding school is enough to choke on.

Since Bryn is the only crossbreed at the Institute for Excellence, all eyes are on her, but it’s a
particular black dragon, Zavien, who catches her attention.

Zavien is tired of the Council’s rules. Segregated clans, being told who to love, and close-minded leaders make freedom of choice almost impossible. The new girl with the striped hair is a breath
of fresh air, and with Bryn’s help, they may be able to change the rules.

At the Institute, old grudges, new crushes, and death threats are all part of a normal day for
Bryn. She’ll need to learn to control her dragon powers if she wants to make it through her first
year at school. But even focusing on staying alive is difficult when you’re falling for someone
you can't have.
