About This Book
"They are the ones who must carry our dreams."
If it had been up to Jon he would never have left Crystal City. Never have left his family and friends. His home. But the Fen children had finally broken through the clear city walls. And the Okalian way would survive only if some of the Okalians survived.
So Jon set out in a world he'd never before experienced. He'd been told to find the Ancient Land. The place where Okalian civilization had begun. But he was not told of the horrors he would have to face in the cold Wilderness. A land of dust storms and bitter cold and wild dogs. Now he's beginning to wonder if everything he'd been taught is a lie...
