On a cold Sunday evening in early 1957, Sarah Dewhurst waited with her father in the parking lot of the Chevron Gas Station for the dragon he�d hired to help on the farm. This dragon, Kazimir, has more to him than meets the eye. Sarah can�t help but be curious about him, an animal who supposedly doesn�t have a soul but is seemingly intent on keeping her safe from the brutal attentions of Deputy Sheriff Emmett Kelby. Kazimir knows something she doesn�t. He has arrived at the farm because of a prophecy. A prophecy that involves a deadly assassin, a cult of dragon worshippers, two FBI agents � and somehow, Sarah Dewhurst herself.
