    Summary

    1914. Two shots ring out in Sarajevo, Bosnia - and start a fire that burns all the fiercer due to the fuel piled up by a bitter naval arms race.

    Naval warfare has never been the same since the discovery of the mineral sapientium. Rare, difficult to mine and powerful, sapientium possesses the unique ability to channel human thoughts into machinery. Since its use in the first ironclads, every new warship has, at its core, a girl whose eyes are its searchlights, whose skin is its armour, whose legs are its engines and whose fists are its guns: a woman with a heart of wisdom.

    Whoever controls sapientium controls the sea. Whoever controls the sea controls the world.

    Now the rookie flagship of the Royal Navy must harness centuries of tradition to contain the might of the Kaiserliche Marine in the North Sea. In the Mediterranean, the Marine Nationale must fight against the K.u.K. Kriegsmarine of Austria-Hungary, whilst the Regia Marina looks on, waiting for an opportunity. The Imperial Russian Navy will rise in the Baltic, while far in the east, the Rising Sun sends its dreadnoughts to do battle on the other side of the world.

    Their endeavours will change history. They will rewrite the rules of the game.

The traveler who finds them has big plans for these teens, which don't include returning them to the 21st Century. Can they find a way to go back to their own time? Will they even really want to?

    Summary

    Its easy to forget in the dark corners of the North, that the world is a very, very big place. Getting kidnapped in the middle of a supply run was Eret's first reminder, apparently Northerners aren't as appreciated as they used to be. But the man meant to 'question' him was the second, and far more enthralling. This 'Shadow' did ask questions, but not the ones he expected. And it left Eret wondering, if life under Drago Bludvist's thumb was really all he could look forward to. One strange, naively hopeful question might well have been what saved his life, when the Dragon Riders came.
    “Surely dragons can’t all be so bad?”

    Eret has one hell of a life-debt to repay. Once Berk is back on its feet, and winter is over. At least it won't be half as hard on the back of a dragon, and hopefully... the Shadow will be waiting.
