Fox is a restless young woman who yearns to know her past. Her best friend, Falcon, makes her laugh and Wolf keeps her head on straight. Even with all she has, she still longs to travel beyond Leathen, her community. One night, the three finally work up the nerve to venture out together and nearly fall into the grasp of flesh-eating creatures called Gorlons. The encounter makes them question everything they know about Leathen. And for Fox, the truth is personal. But it comes with an irreversible cost for all who seek it.
