Itaran law forbids riding the peels, for to do so is certain death. Charged with preventing anyone from attempting to ride the peels, Faron, a Ranger of Trust, finds his own soul inexorably drawn to fly. When he meets Wolf, a beautiful priestess even more alluring and mysterious than the peels, he falls immediately under her spell.
Driven by a need deep within her, Wolf must leave Itar, but to do so she must ride a peel forcing Faron to choose between her and the law he represents, between the known and the unknown.
Soon Wolf and Faron are drawn into a conflict that will affect more than just Itar - a war that will affect all the worlds of Kaelum - Will their destiny be one of triumph or disaster?
