Eefa and her twin brother, Magio, are on the run, hunted by a ruthless predator with a pack of terrifying wolf hounds. They have no idea why this is happening to them. Until recently they enjoyed a carefree life in the ramshackle town of Warren on the semi-tropical isle of Moon. Since birth Eefa has been invisible to everybody other than Magio, an invitation, as Magio sees it, to adventure, inspired by the tall tales of their lodger, Quimbre. But now the sudden death of their beloved Gran has turned their world upside down. Out of the blue, terrifying giants attempt to kidnap Eefa, who is only rescued by the intervention of a stranger, scorned by the townsfolk as an eccentric known as Bird Woman. And now this same stranger insists that Eefa and Magio are no longer safe. They must abandon their childhood home and flee to the Valley of the Raptors, high in the snow-capped mountain peaks of Moon. Here, Bird Woman promises, Eefa will discover the reason for her invisibility. While running, Magio has recurrent dreams about an old woman shackled to a monstrous beach of bones.
What magic will they discover in the Valley of the Raptors? Is Bird Woman telling them the truth? Will Eefa discover the secret of her invisibility? Will they find sanctuary from the malevolent forces that are closing in about them?
