When she is abducted by a powerful sorcerer who hides his true face with illusions, Seri fears the worst. As soon as she arrives at his isolated tower, the sorcerer puts a curse on her. After a grace period of three months, Seri will begin a painful transformation into a dragon, and once that transformation is complete, she will become a mindless beast, obedient to him. Brand, the sorcerer, offers to lift the curse—but only if she gives him something he wants.
Seri, however, is determined to resist him. She meets other girls that Brand has kidnapped and becomes a leader among them, urging them not to yield to Brand’s twisted demands.

But when Brand develops feelings for Seri, he starts to question his choices. What sort of man does he want to be?
