Red Knight Chronicles, Vol. 5
Gunther has returned from the Northern Tribes and has brought back with him a woman he says is Conor’s lost cousin, Evelyn.
In addition to being a warrior-mage, Evelyn has the uncanny ability to communicate with any dragon, wild or domestic. Evfimi doesn’t seem to trust the new recruit, however Akulina finds something strangely familiar about the dragon-speaker, especially the way everyone seems to be captivated by her. Scaled Fist, Nexus, the Elven Queen, and even the supposedly still-grieving, Gunther.
