When a foreign tribe attacks the peaceful Onan people, a lonely outcast is forced to reveal her secret gift – but can she save herself and the clan? It is the darkest time in winter, when suns, moons, and stars all wane from the sky. In the Wolf clan, a baby is born with a powerful gift, but dangerous omens brand her an Outcast, and the Elders name her Iluna.
Kai is a Moonburner—a female sorceress reviled by her people and normally killed at birth. Except Kai’s parents saved her by disguising her as a boy—a ruse they’ve kept up for almost seventeen years. But when her village is attacked, Kai’s secret is revealed and she’s sentenced to death.
