Off to the north with the Duke, the four are spreading their wings on a new adventure. Daja’s outcast status and an interesting bit of magical accident leave her with a living metal plant and a Trader who wants to buy. Of course, she can’t talk to Daja, so the fun begins.
Standing up for their foster-sister, Tris, Briar, and Sandry shame the Traders into doing business with Daja and she feels almost at home again. Of course, it can’t last, and the dried-up, fireless forest soon turns against them. The four learn what it means to risk everything, even their own lives, to save others from certain death. And Daja gets a new magic out of it, too.
