The Land is a peaceful country, where relations among towns are calm and enemies and fights are rare. Even the towns that have enemies do not have to worry too much about their defenses. The only great show of war takes place yearly, at the Trials.
One of the warriors in The Land, Adamar, is an archer for the town of Eadageth. Adamar’s a fox, and in love with his sport. But this love is not so great as the love he has for his mate, Avaha, and his young kit, Miro. Adamar’s life, between his family and archery, is going well.
Then one night, Miro goes missing.
