"You must go to the dragon. You must leave tonight."
Before she even hears the words, Kaeldra already knows what she must do. She must search out the mother dragon whose draclings have just hatched and somehow get some of her precious milk. It's the only way to save her foster-sister's life. Kaeldra would rather not go. It's much too terriffying, much too dangerous. But Kaeldra knows that she's the only one who can do it. For she is the only one who can actually communicate with dragons.
But little does Kaeldra know what she's getting into. She's about to begin a journey that will entwine her fate with that of three little draclings and one would-be dragonslayer. A journey the will become a struggle for life.
"Kaeldra has always been set apart from her foster family by her foreign birth and her green eyes, which are the eyes of dragon sayers, according to a myth--a myth that turns real when a dragon gives birth in the mountains and Kaeldra visits her. . . . After the mother dragon is killed by villagers, Kaeldra is left with three orphan 'draclings'".--Kirkus Reviews.
