Haythem Kemway must be found.
Scarecrow, struggling against his injuries, is on the hunt.
In the aftermath of the Core's breach, the search is underway for a kidnapper, a terrorist, a killer. Bugorra, brako, and Talkers alike seek what they hope will return stability to the City in the Four Falls.
Though none agree on what that is.
With buried secrets unleashed and the lure of Outside seeping deeper into Hebenon's pores, the fragile peace won after the Coup is threatened. Scarecrow does not know if he has the strength to fight the forces threatening those he loves, those waging war for control.
Not even Scarecrow knows if restoring Founder Kemway will be enough to prevent Hebanthe Falls from collapsing beneath her own weight and devouring the majority of mankind.
There is no choice. Scarecrow has to try. Or Hebenon will fall into ruin.
