A home without a heart is no home at all.
Tozall has finally earned a place among the Ruthien, a species far separate from the human tribe he was raised in. Along with his Roc Zriska, he now patrols the territory of his new people to ward against the encroaching Senzill. Being a Rider brings him some status among his new society, but not all Ruthien are willing to look past the stigma of his humanity.
Assigned to a wing after graduation, Tozall finally has a chance to pay back his debt to the Ruthien. Trouble comes knocking far sooner than expected when Ruthien patrols unintentionally turn the Senzill on Tozall’s former tribe. With his loyalties torn, Tozall must choose between his human roots or allowing Zriska to stay with her mate among the Ruthien.
The real question is, where does his heart lie?
