Once he is admitted into the world of the druids, Davis realizes that at least in this place, people have not only weathered the storms of the Fracture, but have thrived because of it. With control over the elements bestowed upon them by the gods, the druids of Oak Grove live their lives in relative peace, without struggle for food, shelter, or any other necessities of life.
All is not idyllic, however, for it is a community ill at ease. For nearly twenty years, scores of young men have been denied their magical heritage by parents who have bowed to the ArchDruid's tyrannical demands. Angie continues her quest to lead her people in a return to the old ways, so that men and women can be equal once again.
While he knew his presence would not be welcomed by some, he hadn't counted on landing in a hotbed of druid politics laced with magic, through which he must carefully navigate, lest he give the inimical ArchDruid a reason to get rid of him -- permanently.
Finding himself squarely in the center of the struggle, Davis discovers that he will have to work harder than ever to keep Angie by his side. It is a test that will require all his wits and courage if he is to remain in his position as her Warrior.
