A Treespeaker is one with his forest, moving with its spirit, inseparably bound to it. Terrifying visions warn Jakan that a visitor to his tribe is not who he claims to be. As the villagers fall under the spell of the stranger’s mind-bending sorcery, Jakan grows desperate to be rid of him. Events take a sinister turn when he accuses the stranger of sacrilege — and it is Jakan, not the outsider, who is expelled from the forest. Join Jakan on his perilous journey across a blighted land as he searches for the secret that will save his people — and himself.
