Captain Hattenel, a captain in the Half-Elven rangers, is ready to go on leave. But she receives a request from a disreputable sea captain, Voron, to explore why all life has disappeared from a rookery far from Half-Elven shores, south in enemy territory. Hattenel’s curiosity is tweaked, and she decides to learn more.
When she learns that Voron plans to investigate the mysterious rookery on his own, Hattenel decides to join him – only to discover a secret that can destroy their world … and Hattenel’s career.
The two are catapulted into a world of dog-headed magic workers. Hattenel and Voron manage to break the magical circle holding them before the heavy gravity of the world or the dog-heads kills them. Combining their magic, they escape back to their world.
Now the pair face another fight: the rangers are on the hunt for Voron—the prime suspect in Hattenel’s disappearance from the Marches.
