Zander and Alexa have completed their quests, but now face the formidable tasks of preparing for an Odwan attack. Zander is now seventeen years old. Rather than celebrating, he is feeling overwhelmed that he has agreed to train the tribe members in combat. How is he going to prepare everyone for an attack with such little time? He finds comfort in Greydon and Zephyr, his two best friends. Zander can see the deepest secrets of others, while Zephyr can tell if someone is lying, as long as they share no blood relation. Zander’s twin sister, Alexa, seeks to help with her magic, yet her help is not wanted while she is a mere apprentice fortune teller, her magic causes too much trouble. Alexa’s goal is to bring peace from dispersing the lands of the elders to those who are without.

As twins Zander and Alexa team with others their age, they are faced with many challenges. As they have now completed their quests, they hold much more responsibility. When he seeks help most, Moria once again speaks to Zander. She tells him that rather than working alone, he needs to find a way to unite the now distant tribes. Alexa, Zander, Zephyr, and their friends unite to complete their goal, knowing that it will be no easy task and lives could be lost. Through their journey, they each discover the true power of working together, they are stronger together. Zander has to show the tribes that he is a powerful leader and will lead them to victory. Alexa must learn to properly yield her magic. Zephyr puts his quest on hold and begs to be able to aid them in their fight. They not only face challenges as a tribe, but ones within themselves, discovering who they truly are.

This is going to be a long and challenging task. Will they be able to untie the tribes? What sacrifices need to be made to defeat their enemy? Can each rise to their full potential?

This was an action-packed tale that enforces the idea that we are stronger when we work together rather than working separately. Although young, these are mere teenagers, they are courageous and face what danger comes their way to protect their tribe. The characters are easy to relate to, making them more enjoyable. This book would appeal to anyone who enjoys a fast-paced novel, old or young. This tale teaches a lesson that is important for us all to learn.
