The dragons had been created by ancient sorcerers deep beneath Firestorm Mountain. The most powerful of these deadly creatures was Gilmreth. After the Worldfire, the dragons escaped from the mountain to prey upon the few living creatures left upon the Earth. Over the centuries, living sources of food became harder to find and the dragons took to preying upon each other.

In a small secluded valley, a few humans still struggle to survive. Just when their lives are finally turning for the better, the surviving dragons find them. As the dragons begin to hunt, the remaining humans fear that this is the end. But there is another surprise hiding in their valley. This hidden secret could be the difference between the humans dying and their ultimate survival.
