'Nineteen-year-old Brianne has always dreamed of leading a squad and has done everything possible to achieve her goal. But the one thing she has no control over is holding her back. All Caelians develop wings in their mid teens, except Brianne. Just like the Caelian's mortal enemies, the Terstens, she's earth bound. Sacred Law demands her death by her twentieth birthday. Brianne's determined to find a way around it. Twenty-one-year-old Talon is the son of the Tersten's General. The past three years he's struggled to hide a secret from his family that could end not only his parents' distinguished careers, but also their lives. He gave up his position in the army, but can't tell anyone why he suddenly chose to drop his life long dream to follow in his father's footsteps in favour of a skill he has no talent for. The two societies revolve around their armies, both knowing the other race was the cause of the centuries long war. When circumstances bring Brianne and Talon together, they begin to learn that not everything is what it seems and the real truth may lie beyond the Feronian Mountains, which none of their people have crossed in centuries.'
