Byx might be the last dairne alive. Together with her companions - loyal Tobble, brave and resourceful Khara, wise but deadly Gambler, and Renzo the thief - she is following a perilous path out of Nedarra and into the snow-covered mountains of the northern country of Dreyland. The threat of war is growing, and with it, the possible extinction of all Byx's dreams.
Just as the group make a hopeful discovery in their quest to find more dairnes, things grow dark. And a terrifying encounter with the terramants, another of the powerful governing species, uncovers a treacherous plan that could bring devastation to all the creatures of Nedarra. But Byx and her friends are determined to never give up, and find themselves the unlikely leaders in a simmering rebellion that threatens all they hold dear.
