The Land is dying. The sea is poisoned. Roern of the Seafolk and Thalia of the Greenworld followed tradition, obeyed the omens, and bound themselves to one another, and still, the Land is dying. Storms plague what was to be their oasis, and Thalia is wasting away before Roern’s eyes. Thalia’s wish to see her parents before she dies, leads Roern to discover that nothing is quite as they thought it to be – and that all was not yet lost.
