Telas leads a small band of survivors through the devastated land of the Metunga Valley—and Morda, his brother, follows him. Angry fires have consumed the forests and killed nearly everything, leaving a wasteland of smoldering death. Ash and black smoke make it hard to breathe. Morda and the others will not survive if they do not find food and shelter. But are they willing to risk all at a chance at salvation?
