2016 Utah Book Award Finalist
Storms rage across the Sharani Desert. Change is in the wind.
Lhaurel has saved the Rahuli, but now she is trapped in a restless slumber, haunted by nightmares from the battle in the Oasis. The madman who tried to destroy the clans is safely locked away in the Roterralar Warren but continues to warn them of a looming threat from outside the Forbiddance—a threat far worse than the genesauri. The Orinai are coming.
Oblivious to these dire warnings, the Rahuli struggle to piece together their crippled society. Whether they like it or not, they must unite to survive. To save the clans, Gavin makes a desperate bid for power. His only ally is a beautiful but confusing woman who is teaching him how to use his burgeoning abilities.
As Gavin tries to lead the people one last time, Lhaurel must decide if she is willing to pay the price to save her people once again.
