(From the publisher):
"Five leave, but five do not return.
Vain hope and pride in terror burn."
The wise woman's prophecy is frightening and mysterious- and cruelly disappointing. Never before has Rowan needed so much help and been given so little.
In one horrifying moment his young sister, Annad, was abducted by the Zebak, the age-old enemies of Rin. Rowan knows that he, and he alone, might have prevented this tragedy. With three true companions he sets off to the very heart of Zebak territory to bring Annad back. They endure shipwreck, a burning desert, and imprisonment, armed only with the wise woman's pitiful clues- a few dry twigs, a small bundle of pale grass, a tarnished medallion, and the unnerving prophecy.
Can Rowan rescue his sister and lead everyone home safely to Rin? Even if he does, how can he protect Rin from the Zebak's deadly plans?
