Summary from Shelfari:
All people have dreams from their pasts that never came to be. This is especially true for Gamane, and he intends to fix it. A long time ago, he tried to imprison Kalelli, the woman who would not love him back, with a powerful enchantment. Kalelli countered the spell, and instead of becoming his prisoner, a new race was born and Kalelli was destroyed. The cadens, part cat, part bird, and part magical Kalelli have been able to live in peace for hundreds of years, but now Gamane is back and wants to kill them all to restore his beloved back to life in her human form. Marcila doesn-t fit in on her island home of Slinaria. She is a skeptic living among people who thrive on stories and try hard to forget the past. When she finds out her father is alive and abandoned her when she was a toddler, she sets out for the mainland to find him so that she can understand why she is different. On her journey, she forms a bond with a caden and decides she must help fight Gamane in his mission. She meets others who share this vision, including her father. A group of mages and civilians band together to stop the powerful Gamane and end the caden killings.
I received this book from the author for an honest review.
