Coryn, Soren and the Chaw of Chaws ride a river of wind to discover a realm of endless wonders where dwells a society of mysterious owls, the like of which has never been seen before. Meanwhile, journeying in the known kingdoms, Primrose and Eglantine stumble upon a plot by Nyra to kill the young king and his companions in a distant snowy land. Too late to get help from the tree, the young Guardians must find the strange new realm on their own to warn Coryn and the others. Even if they make it in time, will a handful of Guardians and peace-loving monks be a match for Pure Ones bent on murder? The band discovers a new kingdom with the help of Bess, meanwhile Soren's daughter is being helped by a blue owl she named the Striga a.k.a. Orlando. The band meets a sage named Tengshu and learn more about the Middle Kingdom, and get ambushed by a bunch of Pure Ones.
