Beneath

Description

Cairn wants a better life for his village, the life of abundance the starlight stories promise. Ray can produce light, but between the sun and a sister who can spin fire from her fingertips, there's no need for her. And Whippoorwill is desperate to hide her baby brother’s newly emerging power, lest the holies take him as their own. Besides, what use what use would there be for a baby who has animals sacrificing themselves at his feet?

Cairn finds a berry, proof the starlight stories might be true, and enlists Ray to help him search for its source. When they awaken a tree with roots of lava, their static sky begins to move, bringing wind, destruction, and a restart of the seasons—not redemption as they’d hoped. They must find the fabled tree of life and figure how the baby fits in, before winter dooms the villagers to certain death.
