Something has fallen from the sky, leaving a flaming horizon and a shattered forest in its wake. Those hungry for power have been drawn to this sky treasure, and so the master Gifted called Sound-of-Thunder has sent her youngest daughter to seek it out. But Fire-in-the-Night is no ordinary teenage girl: she is fierce, resourceful, and Gifted.
The path she walks becomes fraught with danger, while her family continuing their migration to warmer climates. Is she leaving them behind, or being left behind herself? She has the potential to become one of the greatest Gifted ever known, but only if she survives this first quest. Her fate may depend on the help of an unlikely friend she makes along the way.
