When her father dies shortly before her birthday, seventeen-year-old Aderyn is thrust into the role of Protector of Atratys. In this dominion in a kingdom, nobles are able to transform themselves at will into the bird that represents their family bloodline. Aderyn’s ancestral bird is a swan, but she hasn’t transformed for years, not since witnessing the death of her mother who was ripped apart by hawks supposedly extinct since the long-ago War of the Raptors. With both of her parents gone, Aderyn is at the mercy of her brutal uncle, the king, and his royal court. Driven by revenge and love, she must venture into the malevolent heart of the Citadel to find the truth about the attack that nearly destroyed her, fight for the only home she has ever known and for the land she has vowed to protect.
