A warrior of the winged Fawlkon race, Kadyn combines her people’s powerful sense of pride and dignity with dedication to service in the Hyum military. She also shares her people’s insecurities, driven by uncertainty about their place in a world ruled over by the Hyum.
These feelings became intensely personal for Kadyn when a close friendship with a Hyum ended badly, leaving her emotionally scarred and threatening her ability to continue in the military.
Kadyn overcame this by leaving the City and joining the aerial Intelligence Unit, but a chance encounter with Cael draws her firmly back into the world of the Hyum. As she joins Cael on his voyage of discovery, wounds of the heart reopen and Kadyn is challenged as never before.
