A deadly new sport is making dragons disappear.
Playing in the Blazewrath World Cup with Team Puerto Rico and the Sol de Noche
dragons had been Lana Torres’s dream come true—until it turned into a nightmare. To rid
the world of the dragon supremacists, Lana and her friends had to cancel the games forever.
Without the sport that brought them together, the whole team returns to Puerto Rico to
recover. But rest isn’t in the cards. Someone is kidnapping dragons and has set their sights on
the Sol de Noches.
To keep their dragons safe, Team Puerto Rico has to take down an underground cabal of evil
magic users who are fighting stolen dragons to the death. But even if they join forces with
Blazewrath-superstar-turned-international-fugitive Takeshi Endo, will they be able to
stop the most powerful witch the world has ever seen?
