Two young women have vanished and not even their kidnappers know where they are. A desperate search for Shaye and Jariel begins and an unprecedented reward is offered, but faith, love, and decaying fragments of history may provide the only keys to finding them.
Shaye grew up with dreams of walking with the legendary Exiles in a place her people called “the land of cloud and leaf.” But this may be more of a nightmare than the stuff of childhood fantasies. She's lost certainty in her faith, overwhelmed by sorrows, and she is staggered by the realization that her nemesis, Jariel, will become her permanent responsibility.
The Exiles have managed to conceal their existence for more than sixty years, yet they will risk their entire way of life to rescue two women and lead them on a long and perilous journey away from Aegea.
For ages 16 and up.
