       Additional Information  
      In Rilka's village, it isn't safe to go out after dark. That's when the beguilers drift through the streets, as bright and visible as fireflies. Everyone knows their power-they hypnotize their victims and, in the end, lead them to their deaths. When Rilka declares her Great Intention to capture a beguiler, her family and friends mourn her. Still, a determined Rilka sets out on her lonely, danger-filled journey, where she will struggle to keep her strength and her sanity. What she learns there will change her life-and the life of her village-forever. . . .
