Summary:Azalie, Orphen's best friend who had helped him get through the prestigious magic school, The Tower of Fang, has some connection with the beastly dragon, the Bloody August. To uphold the magic school's reputation, the dragon must be destroyed—but Orphen isn't about to let that happen so easily, for this beastly dragon is Azalie: she had been transformed due to tampering with something with which she shouldn't have. People whom Orphen thought were his friends suddenly seem as though they are enemies in the race to get to Azalie first. Orphen leaves the school, furious with the fact that they want to destroy his best friend.
After five years, he finds himself living in the quiet town of Totokanta and taking on a student - Majic Lin, his landlord's son. Life is quiet and fairly lazy until the day Cleao Everlasting comes home from boarding school, and stumbles into Orphens quietly laid plans for the sword that sits on her family's mantle; the Sword Of Baltanders. It turns out that the sword is actually one of three magical artifacts that Orphen will need if he is to save Azalie. But the Bloody August assaults the town looking for the sword, the Tower's forces show up as well.
To find the other pieces of the sword, Orphen sets off with his apprentice, little miss Everlasting and two short-statured misfits, but at all times they need to stay ahead of the Tower of Fangs and its sorcerers, who believe that bringing Azalie back would reveal a mistake so great it could bring the Tower down - and, of course, ahead of Azalie herself who, as the dragon is more powerful than both Orphen and the Tower, and is driven soley by the need to transform back into her human self.
