Two factions. One island. Because of his mixed blood, Leithan Blackfeather doesn't truly belong to either side. When tensions rise between the two communities and war seems imminent, Leithan is caught in the middle. But he finds an unexpected ally in Teshin, a young man just woken up from a freakishly long coma. Teshin knows many of the island's secrets, though he doesn't like to talk about his past. Now, on top of trying to save both peoples - and himself in the process - Leithan must decide whether he can really trust his mysterious new friend.
