Okay, the story is rather involved. Humans managed to blow up Earth so it’s floating around in a bunch of pieces thanks to the help of an advanced alien, and so on. What happens is, on one of the pieces, atmosphere is basically nonexistent so it’s pretty much a floating rock out in space and humans have been warring with a species closely resembling dragons (grygons) who once lived in Earth’s core over territory. The main character is transported to the largest chunk along with a grygon called Kael during a battle. They both have no clue what just happened, where they are, yadda yadda, so they call a truce until they can get back home. They start walking and come across a village and spot a group of men who are spying on the village, follow them and discover a huge army camped a few miles away. The main character, Brin, is a colonel back on the Rim and has dedicated her entire life to those living in the compound, keeping them safe from grygon attacks, and so on. Would it make sense for Brin to ignore her own problems and go and warn the village? And then onto the king to let him know the southern kingdom is invading? I can see putting in a scene with her warring against herself over her decision to just “walk away and let them deal with it on their own,” but I am not sure if I want this "noble hero" sacrificing everything for people she doesn’t know, which she ends up doing I guess, but still. Any ideas would be great!
