Who was Darkchild, and for what purpose had he come to the valley?
Kira was a barhona's daughter destined to wield the power of the sun over her peaceful people. Her way was hard, but she knew her heritage and her future...
Then, in the dead of winter, a ship brought Darkchild. He was not of her race, he had no memory. How could he pose a threat to her people that the Arnimi assured her he did? Was Darkchild all that he seemed?
