After a spell that went awry and the unexpected rescue of the notorious A'ron De'contes, Jathen finally has the answer to the question that has plagued him since his friends’ deaths: He is a Negater, one of the rarest, most precious of nontraditional Talents. But each new revelation regarding his new powers that breaks upon the shore only leaves him with more questions and newer frustrations. For whoever gets the Negater, gets the prize.
Wounded and alone, Jathen desperately tries to make his way back home to the Tazu Nation. His path is treacherous, as he is pursued by the traitorous Mikkal and the mysterious Sister. However, a Grand Artifact has chosen him as its guardian, and it may have other plans for the wayward moot. Torn once more from everything he's known, Jathen must not only find answers from the Artifact's past, but also learn to use his newfound abilities to save the populace of a city lost to time.
Bit by bit, stone by stone, Jathen is building a foundation on which will stand his mastery of his rare ability. If he can survive a few lumps from his teacher, that is. As Jathen gains more confidence and skill, things seem to be going his way, except for a still-looming prophecy of doom. Seeing the future may be something a talent like Jathen was born to do, but even Jathen’s most powerful teacher can only help so much in understanding what to do with those visions. Suddenly, the all-too-familiar rumbling beneath his feet begins, and disaster strikes.
Hatched from an egg but unable to shift into dragon form, Jathen is a Moot among the Tazu. His rightful throne is forbidden him because of his transformative handicap, and neither his culture nor his religion offer acceptance of his perceived flaws. Driven by wounded anger, Jathen strikes out across the vast world beyond Tazu borders, desperate to find a place where he feels accepted and whole. Though he travels with the most trusted of companions, sabotage and conspiracy soon strike his quest.
