When a girl washes onto the beach half-drowned, she wakes with no memory of what's happened to her, how she survived - or even who she is. She soon finds herself caught in the last war of a dying land, fighting desperately to rediscover herself before she and everything she loves is obliterated completely. Enter Melidora, a kingdom in the teeth of a disease that eradicates memory. Learn the secret history of the Halcyon, Melidora's creatrix, and follow the shipwrecked girl's rise to power over the wolf shadows of the Cradle Spire. Can she stand against the Nixian hordes to save Melidora, or will she be swallowed up and forget herself forever?
