Heroine Firekeeper and her sentient wolf companion, Blind Seer, are kidnapped and taken as guests of the Liglimoshi, who appear to worship
sentient animals and place a high
value on various portents and omens. Also taken captive is Firekeeper's
friend Derian Carter, who has
smoothed Firekeeper's path since
she came to live among the humans instead of Blind Seer and his pack.

Firekeeper, Blind Seer and Derian have no choice but to maneuver for
their very lives in a society where
they don't speak the language and
where the very basis of the society is utterly foreign to them. Firekeeper believes the sentient animals are
being held against their will, and
feels she must investigate.

Firekeeper's relationship
with Blind Seer is one of the
most interesting things about this
book. Watching Firekeeper learn
about humanity and still maintain
her identity as a wolf makes for
compelling reading. Intricately
plotted and written, Lindskold's
latest creates an utterly fascinating
world that readers can thoroughly lose themselves in. (Nov., 528 pp., $27.95)
