Rigg lives in a small country town with his father trapping animals to survive. They spend hours in the woods with his father teaching him languages, diplomacy, how to use his powers to track paths and survival, until his father dies. Then Rigg tries to save a young boy from going over a waterfall and has to flee town in a hurry. He and Umbo, brother of the dead child start on a journey with instructions left by his father to the city where Rigg will get ahold of his wealth. As they journey they find much more then they bargained for.

This was a really interesting book even though it took me forever to get through. Rigg is an intriguing and likable character. I also liked being able to learn what happened in the past and being able to figure out exactly what happened and how the world got to be the way it was. The scientific concepts were interesting and sometimes they took a little bit of time for me to grasp but they weren't so complicated that I gave up. The world building was pretty incredible and I liked that it was such an integral part of the plot so I didn't feel as though it was wasting time. I really enjoyed this which is pretty amazing cause I am not normally such a scyfy fan.
