In the village of Bezkamp, laws, land, rituals, and warriors are sacred. The written word is banished. Nem, son of one of Bezkamp's strongest warriors, shows no signs of fire or strength. Forced to follow in his father's footsteps, Nem must venture beyond their village walls in order to save land from being corrupted by the dangerous and toxic Crig beasts. As Nem begins to see more of their planet, he'll begin to uncover the truth behind the village's lies and start to fight for truth.

“Sattin and Hickman have skillfully crafted an inventive, action-filled sci-fi adventure that simultaneously wrestles with family trauma, environmental destruction and the danger of destroying history. I highly recommend it!” —Maia Kobabe, Genderqueer
