â€śOn 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 heâ€™d hired to help on the farm.â€ťÂ This dragon, Kazimir, has more to him than meets the eye. Sarah canâ€™t help but be curious about him, an animal who supposedly doesnâ€™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 doesnâ€™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 â€“ and somehow, Sarah Dewhurst herself.
