"Five strange fingers
from fate's hand,
Each plays its part
at fate's command."
The dreaded Zebak nation is closing in on the gentle people of Rin. The Zebak have fanged, flying monsters to carry out their missions, and revenge burns deep in their hearts. Rowan's little sister, Annad, is their first target.
When Armad is taken deep into the country of the Zebak, Rowan and his companions begin a dangerous Journey to rescue her. Will dark forces finally prove too much for Rowan? Or will he be able to save his sister -- and all their people -- from this terrible menace?
