It is a time long ago in the Northern Kindoms, which were then known as the kingdoms of the Nyrthgar. On the throne are good King Hrath and Queen Siv. But darkness lurks. Hagsfiends(creatures that are half crow and half owl) lurk in the dark parts of the Nyrthgar, hoping to rule it one day.
This is the story of Grank, a male spotted owl who is a good friend of the king and queen. Grank like Coryn, has firesight. Amazed by this wonderful talent he posses, Grank leaves the safe kingdoms of the Nyrthgar and heads to the Beyond to learn more about fire and firesight. He meets a wolf named Fengo, who helps him in work and the study of fire. Grank learns to catch bonke cols and other important things. But even though he sees it through the flames, the hagsfiends are training and prepairing for battle. In a great battle, Hrath is killed and Siv is forced to flee with one of her servants and egg. The hagsfiends take over the Ice Palace where the king and queen ruled. Grank returns to find Siv and take her to safety. Grank finds her but is almost immediatly attacked by hagsfiends. He takes Siv's egg and quickly flees. Siv is trapped and is greatly wounded but survives. Although she survives she does not see her chick grow up. It is a remarkable tale of love and friendship. It is the story of Grank.
The book is astonishing and should be read
