Life is miserable for motherless, nineteen-year-old Never, her only joy found in the small pockets of time she spends with her hawk Avec, trying to learn how to use her mysterious wings. The same wings that only get her far enough from the ground to make it hurt when she crashes. Alone in the village of her birth that's never felt like home, Nev suffers her father's abuses in silence, save for Avec's support and comfort in all-too-fleeting tea times with the quirky but grandmotherly Nina, her only human friend. But when forced to take a stand against her father's greed, Nev is joined by Avec and Nina on a journey that changes the fabric of her reality.
Learning along the way that her wings only hint at the potent blood coursing through her veins, Nev finds herself and the humans she lives among swept up in the momentum of a brewing war between her bloodlines that has nothing, and everything to do with her. Somewhere in the balance, Nev must find her place, seeing for the first time that good and evil aren't as clear as they seem and family isn't always something one is born with.
