Emmeline and her friends have arrived in the safety of Matisa’s valley.
But trouble has followed.
Matisa’s people, once protected from a sickness that deterred newcomers, are now dying from the disease. Worse, Dominion soldiers are arriving with brutal weapons, claiming the land as their own. They’re also desperate for a cure.
To regain their upper hand and negotiate peace, Emmeline and Matisa must discover a new remedy for the sickness—fast. But their dreams reveal an unexpected path: they must return to the stifling settlment Emmeline was so desperate to leave.
With war on the horizon and dangers closing in, Emmeline must confront her past and risk her life to secure the future that burns in her heart.
