In the kingdom of Lugin, the fair young queen, Briana, gives birth to her first child, Prince Langilor while in a nearby forest a most unusual hatchling called Saras is born to a beautiful green dragon.
Prince Langilor is a shy and gentle lad, adored by his parents and the peace-loving people of Lugin. The young dragon, Saras, becomes an arrogant bully who terrorizes the dragon clan after learning to fly and breathe fire.
During his twelfth year, Langilor stands before his parents and the Royal Advisors, who will judge his worthiness to be the future king. With increasing threats from enemies to the North as well as the dangerous fire-breathing dragon, how could this peaceful young Prince ever be strong enough to protect the kingdom?
In the quiet of the royal garden, a graceful white swan tells Langilor, “Go in search of the dragon alone. Conquer the dragon and claim your throne.” During the dramatic encounter between the Prince and the dragon, the future of Lugin hangs in the balance.
Langilor discovers that enemies can become friends, weaknesses become strengths, and the darkness of fear is replaced through love, acceptance and respect.
