den yields unexpected guardians. • Cardiology: Trapped in his laboratory, running out of supplies, scientist Theodore hatches bioengineered reptiles. These flawed creatures are not the magnificent dragons he read about in books — but they're the scientist's only hope for survival in the ruined outside world. • Clearsight: Two dragons use their vast power to tinker with prehistoric Earth. They are determined to help this planet produce life that will evolve to fellow dragons — a rare development in all the universe. But their work is interrupted by an extinction event that could wipe out all of Earth's potential. • In Lifetimes Spared: She was once a princess, stolen away by the terrible dragon Vivekr. Now she is a queen, greying and wise, and she calls Vivekr her friend. There can be peace between humans and dragons: the queen is convinced of this, but the rest of humanity isn't so sure — and neither are Vivekr's fellow dragons. • Raise: A novelette set in the Stories of Aligare world. Tenver, a weasel-like ferrin, was raised with love by a dragon-like korvi, Constezza. But when Tenver accidentally trades away the eggshells Constezza hatched from — the eggshells that are any korvi's most precious possession — he must fix his mistake. He goes journeying to find the eggshells — and he needs the help of Judellie, a young korvi just finding the courage to leave home on her own wings.
