Ro cannot feel the elements as her fellow villagers do, and is blamed when her niece is born deaf. Exiled, Ro and her kin set out for Najarind. Accused of murder, hunted and betrayed, they become entangled in the eternal struggle between the Dragon and the Worm. If legends are to be believed, only a naïve girl and a baby stand between the world and destruction.
