The blood wings have attacked once again. The batlike monsters swoop down on treetop villages and suck the blood out of any unfortunates they can find.
Mercy of Mind, a young woman in one such village, is training to be a shaman. Although Mercy’s new healing abilities save a life after the fight, her father, the chieftain, is apathetic. Mercy knows he wishes the blood wings had taken her, instead of her brother, when they attacked one year ago.
But when a storm of blood envelops the village, Mercy’s father gives her an important task. She needs to find out who would dare practice the ancient blood magic. Mercy barely escapes her village’s land with her life. Frenzied blood wings kill her mount and nearly kill her—before two strangers rescue her.
The men, Pyron and Beryl, also want to find the answer to the mystery of the blood rain. Mercy allies herself with the two, but soon realizes they are hiding deadly secrets. She, along with her new companion, Erebus, must get to the bottom of a political conspiracy. In a land of death, destruction, and the darkest magic, whom can she trust?
