Rain designs exquisite stained-glass windows. But the law is clear: girls cannot be part of the glassmakers' guild. Leaving home, she travels to Magharna. When Peri witnesses Rain's capture by a gang of bandits, his fate and heart become tied to hers. They escape the outlaws, but Peri's family of falconers and untouchables is scorned by all. Can Rain and Peri's love survive the prejudices against them? And with the country on the brink of disaster, will they be able to stop their world from smashing apart?
