The World of the River

Kyreol, daughter of a Healer, knew that beyond the dangerously swirling rapids of Fourteen Falls lay nothing but darkness...

Newly betrothed, Kyreol still burned with the old, haunting questions. Where had her mother disappeared to so long ago? What lay beyond the edge of the world? And what was the meaning of the Moon-Flash, sign of life and hope to her people?

Then one day the Hunter came to her, a mysterious and powerful stranger who entered her dreams. Suddenly she knew what she must do. She must leave home, following the River to the place where the world ends – and then beyond.

She did not yet know that when you leave the world behind, it is forever.
