Nobody knows when it started or where it came from. A horrific new plague is sweeping the country like wildfire, destroying cities one by one: Boston, Detroit, and Seattle. Draco Incendia Trychophyton is the name given to it by doctors. To the rest of the world, it’s Dragonscale, a highly contagious, lethal spore that leaves gorgeous black and gold patterns all over its victims’ bodies before causing them to erupt in flames. Thousands of people have been afflicted, and fires have erupted all over the place. There is no cure for this. There is no one who is safe.
