Fun, humour, battles, sentient dragons, betrayal, heroism, a little romance, more dragons - what more could you ask for?
Eleanor is a serious, intelligent teenager with a slightly bonkers mother. She is also a Time Strider and a Dragon Slayer. When the time tracks align, Catherine - the Time Interpreter shows Eleanor the route to her destiny where she must leave childhood and comforts behind and fight for the survival of strangers who exist in a time loop.
The Man Betrayer has taught the higher dragons to speak. No longer individual menaces, the creatures communicate, plot and join with more sadistic allies. When the she-devil - Maligna Satana, teams up with Brute Festeral - giant bull dragon and Doom Bringer of the Cold Lands, it seems that the Dragon Slayers who have so far protected Moreth will be defeated.
Eleanor has unreliable help from the mathmagicians - otherwise known as Enquates - creatures who exist in each other's mind spaces.
In the course of her heroic adventure, Eleanor finds a clue to her own identity, past and future.
