Months have passed since they were together. Yosef has gone back to his job at Delectable Bites, waiting for the day Ayako returns to him. The half dragon is at the Dragon's Spine learning how to control her newly woken dragon's ability.
After Yosef's old friend hires them, they find themselves on a quest. A mysterious tree has appeared near the seaside town of Oceania. But they have little to go on and no idea what they might face.
With blossoming powers she barely understands and an attack that still haunts her, Ayako needs to face what she fears in order to grow. Yosef's love for Ayako still takes him by surprise. He worries about dragging her into the unknown and his ability to keep her safe.
The adventure will change them both and secrets will be revealed.
