Sixteen-year-old Trinity Brown is used to her grandfather's crazy stories, so she never believed the latest treasure he brought home was a real dragon's egg. Not until their home is invaded by soldiers trying to steal it and a strange boy who tells her the world as she knows it will be wiped out in a fiery dragon war—unless they work together to stop it. Meantime, there's a different voice whispering to Trinity, calling to her, telling her what to do...the dragon inside her egg is not ready to give up without a fight.
Given his line of work in the employ of a psychotic Brooklyn crime boss named Underwood, Trent finds himself on the wrong end of too many bullets. Yet each time he's killed he wakes a few minutes later completely healed of his wounds but with no memory of his past identity. What’s worse, each time he cheats death someone else dies in his place. Underwood's latest task seems simple at first: steal an old, antique box from some squatters in an abandoned warehouse near the West Side Highway. Trent soon finds himself stumbling into an age-old struggle between the forces of good and evil, opening his eyes to a secret world that shadows our own, a world where dangerous magic turns people into inhuman monstrosities, where impossible creatures hide in plain sight, and where the line between the living and the dead is never quite clear. And when the mysterious box is opened, he discovers he has only twenty-four hours to prevent an ancient, unstoppable force from destroying New York City.
