Janet Skyy was never quite as interested as her father Leslye in the myths of the lost City of Light. She is far more fascinated with hiking away from their ancient, secluded home into the nearby village to listen to an old traveling merchant and his wife tell tales of cities and places afar, and how those people were saved from a terrible plague by the Dramenian foreigners, far from their home across the sea. There seems no way she will ever meet one, or find a reason why her father regards them with such hostility. Her world is turned on its head when the merchants arrive with a mysterious artifact for her father to examine. Janet finds herself drawn into an adventure to explore secrets long buried, and begins to see that there is more to her father than she has ever known – and why they all have so much to fear.
