Trapped in an iceberg, Archan, the sole surviving dragon from Dragonflame, is on the move -- the iceberg sails mysteriously into the warm waters of the Indian Ocean. The balance of nature shifts. The eruption of Krakatoa, 1883, is the result. Jonah Lightfoot, journeying in the East Indies in search of the Cradle of Mankind, is hurled between worlds. With him is Annie West, an adventurous American on the run from her violent husband. Through a series of fabulous landscapes they arrive in the world of Stone. It is a spooky other-world, an endless Wall with exotic foliage crammed between the stones, air that is alive and flowing... and it is populated by stone-age humans as well as dragons, and the strangest of creatures, the Ypoth, whose task it is to repair the Wall whenever it is breached. Annie is taken over by Frey, the evil shaman of the natives, and Jonah needs the aid of the Ypoth -- but he doesn't know about Archan, nor the enchantments Frey has already worked...
