Royal Orchid - Into the Flames

A power-hungry dragon.

A swarm of smoky skeletons.

Two parents, desperate to find their daughter.

Frantic to save the young Crystal Kingdom princess from the clutches of the dragon, King Leor and Queen Charlotte embark on a rescue mission.

But Leor has other enemies, and they have finally caught up with him. Charlotte must make a choice: save her husband from a terrible fate in the desolate Dark Plain, or rescue their child. With the help of a Mystic Wolf and a few unexpected allies, the separated monarchs navigate an unfamiliar wasteland and fight the battle of their lives to save their family.

However the dangers are far from over. Within the Kingdom hides a threat no one anticipated, one perhaps, even greater than the dragon. What price will they have to pay to ensure their daughter’s safety?
