'Two extraordinary children. A quest to save a city. A magical adventure for children 10 years and olders.

Oriole's beloved Wishbird is dying and she must leave the Forest of Birds to save him. But in the City of Soulless there are traitors everywhere, and when Oriole is captured, only a street orphan can help her. Can Oriole and Boy save Soulless and its bewitched king, or will the city's darkness prove too great even for magic?' (Publisher's blurb)
