Tegen, headstrong druid-in-training, has struck out alone - but the world beyond her village is a dangerous place. The Roman invaders are tightening their grip on the land and the British tribes are warring instead of uniting.
When Tegen meets a sensible young druid he seems the perfect guide. But Owein's dark past is chasing him and he brings Tegen into the orbit of a deadly new enemy. The Shadow Walker and his raven-familiar covet her new found fire-magic - and will stop at nothing to control the young Fire Dreamer's spiralling powers . . .
