People who are fascinated with dragons will find their tales intriguing and entertaining. Illustrations of each species of fire dragons support their individual stories.

This creates a rift in society between those who support and succor H. transformans and those who seek to exploit them. Raephela continues the saga of H. transformans wherein Raephela Cassius seizes control of the Cassius Foundation and uses its resources to bend all people to her will.
