Fate seems to be dictating an unusual course for David when his university tutor sets him a project discussing the existence of dragons. The tantalizing prize – a fully-funded research trip to the Arctic – seems just within his grasp. But when David finds a link between dragons and the Arctic just as it begins to snow, is it only a coincidence? Or could deeper forces be at work? Soon David finds himself drawn into a time when dragons really did exist, and their secrets were guarded by the polar bears of the Arctic. David must open his mind to the legend of dragons, and the mysterious lore of Icefire…
