Life is turned upside down on Corista for 15-year-old Oriannon and her friends. The planet's axis has shifted, bringing chaos to Brightside and Shadowside. And Jesmet, the music mentor who was executed for saving their lives, is alive and promises them a special power called the Wind-if they'll just wait. Those who live in lush comfort on the bright side of the small planet Corista have plundered the water resources of Shadowside for centuries, ignoring the existence of Shadowside's inhabitants, who are nothing more than animals. Or so the Brightsiders have been taught. It will take a special young woman to expose the truth-and to help avert the war that is sure to follow. On the planet Corista, the new faith of its first Believers is tested in the shadow of evil. In book two, readers can contemplate how biblical truths translate in another world. The planet of Corista has been thrown off its axis, and the bright side is experiencing times of darkness for the first time. Are the Owling people of Shadowside to blame? With both sides of the planet in chaos, the world becomes even more confusing for 15-year-old Oriannon when her former music mentor Jesmet miraculously returns and promises his followers a special power called the Numa. But his is not the only offer of hope. Sola, Corista's charismatic head of Security, proposes the 'ultimate solution' for peace, and she recruits Oriannon to help her carry out a seemingly perfect plan. But Oriannon's friend Margus, is skeptical of Sola's intentions. Should Oriannon trust the feelings of her friend? Will she embrace Sola's solution as the answer to the world's dilemma?
