Sylfor Kint is a dreadful poet. Perhaps that wouldn't matter if she didn't live in Eastland, where poetry makes the world go round. Shunned by her family for her lack of verse, Sylfor finds solace in exploring the ground, a forbidden adventure among the treefolk. But her adventure to the Wish-Giver's hut turns sour when her eagle companion is ensnared. Without poetry, can she be of any help?
