With her boundless curiosity and spirit, Fer has always felt that she
doesn’t belong in this world. She hears the call of the wild wood, of
the secrets it whispers to her. But when her grandmother reveals clues
about the disappearance of her father, Owen, and his mystical bond to
her mother, Fer begins to unlock secrets about the parents she never
knew. Led to a reflecting pool that uncovers the Way, Fer finds herself
in another realm — mysterious and enticing — a world she might call her own.
In this place cloaked in wonder, where pucks transform from boys to horses, Fer feels the call of the blood bond. But with her mother gone, everything has spun out of order and evil has imprisoned the place in ice. Now it is up to Fer to face down the powerful Mor, who has cruelly overtaken this world and its people, and answer the call of her legacy.
Magic and intrigue embody this quest filled with chase scenes, hunts, and horses that fly. Prineas delivers an enthralling journey brimming with action, spirit, and the excitement of finding one’s true calling.
