      In the land of Kodu Riik, becoming _ahalad-kaaslane_ is the highest honor one can achieve. It means that the Lady has chosen you to bond and be united forever with one of Her specially blessed animals--soul to soul . . . .

    Abandoned by her parents as an infant, Reisil grew up perpetually reminded that she did not belong. There wasn't a moment when she didn't feel like apologizing just for existing--until she became a tark and proudly discovered her talent for healing.

    Now, when Reisil believes she has finally found the security and sense of belonging she has always craved, she is chosen by the Blessed Lady to be _ahalad-kaaslane_--one of the judges, soldiers, spies, and explorers who
    travel the land, bound to no one but the Lady Herself. Devastated by the thought of losing her hard-won place in the world, Reisil rejects the Lady's gift and the _ahalad-kaaslane_ goshawk who needs her.

    But Reisil's decision does not affect her alone. Soon the fate of all Kodu Riik will rest in her hands--and Reisil will be forced to make a bitter choice to save her people from the horrors of war . . . .
