In the time of the Han Dynasty in ancient China, a young orphan struggles to fulfill her destiny. Ping has survived her days as a slave at Huangling Palace, but new challenges await her in the desolate mountains of Tai Shan. The wise dragon, Danzi, is no longer around to guide her, and now it is up to Ping to take care of the baby dragon, Kai. Food is scarce, and she must constantly be on the lookout for enemies. Things seem to get better when fate leads them back to the Imperial Palace, to the Garden of the Purple Dragon. Yet even within these hallowed walls, Ping and Kai are not as they believe.

Ping is once again facing the Emperor, Liu Che, because
she stole an Imperial dragon. Well, not really. She is a dragonkeeper,
and Danzi, her old dragon, told her to steal away the purple stone who
hatched into a baby dragon the previous book. Danzi leaves her to go to
the Isle of the Blest, and she is left to take care Kai, the baby
dragon. She is met against lots of people who wish to harm Kai, and
her. Her future begins to dim as she is replaced as a dragonkeeper and
she realizes the intentions of the Emperor. This was a sad book, but it
was well-written. I liked it, but it wasn't as exciting as finding out
the awesome nature of dragons from the first book, Dragonkeeper.
