In epic YA fantasy about a girl with a special power to communicate with magical beasts and the warring kingdom only she can save.

Alone, far from home, Elin soon discovers that she can talk to both the terrifying water serpents and the majestic flying beasts that guard her queen. This skill gives her great powers, but it also involves her in deadly plots that could cost her life. Can she save herself and prevent her beloved beasts from being used as tools of war? Or is there no way of escaping the terrible battles to come? — Cover image and summary via Goodreads
