Mira would rather climb mountains alone than hide in the confining village, despite warnings of griffins. She met a griffin, and he didn't harm her—in fact, he saved her life. But his friendship isn’t enough to protect her or her village.
Griffins unlock abilities in their human captives. Mira’s new ability to translate seems useless compared to her friends’ fire, water, and healing—until she discovers that she and her griffin friend can communicate. Their bond threatens griffin culture and human rebels alike. Caught in between, Mira and her griffin must teach their species to communicate before both sides are destroyed.
