Ashlai, a Fyre, has always felt like an outsider amongst the Forest-footers who raised her and her brother, Merritt. When she discovers a Fyre princess speaking to her from within their mother’s Shard—the only link to their past—she is soon launched into an adventure that is much bigger than her constant struggle to understand who she is—a quest which may help her unravel that secret past.
